Dysphagia

dysphagiaPeople with Dysphagia have difficulty swallowing and may even experience pain while swallowing. Some people may be completely unable to swallow or may have trouble safely swallowing liquids, foods, or saliva. When that happens, eating becomes a challenge. Difficulties with swallowing can be an issue following stroke, brain injury, due to progressive neurological diseases, or due to congenital impairments.

Our Occupational Therapists and Speech-Language Pathologists at Meridian Rehab assess and provide intervention, addressing abilities that affect self-feeding, cognition, perception, sensory and motor skills, and postural control, to optimize feeding and swallowing ability.
