For patients who have swallowing problems, we can perform a barium swallow study to diagnose the cause of the problem and provide treatment. Our therapists are trained in providing VITAL STIM— the only therapy of its kind certified by the Food & Drug Administration for the treatment of swallowing disorders. By using electrical stimulation to increase strength and coordination of the swallowing muscles, our speech pathologists may help patients improve their quality of life and regain the ability to enjoy normal eating and drinking.
