Dysphagia, or swallowing problems, affects up to 15 million Americans, with almost one million new cases diagnosed every year. If an individual is experiencing difficulty swallowing, it’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible. Left untreated, dysphagia can lead to serious complications – even death.
If an individual has experienced swallowing problems or eating-related issues, it would be beneficial to consider the Synchrony dysphagia treatment program at Peabody. These issues include:
The Synchrony™ OmnisEMG™ System enables therapists and patients to visualize swallowing activity. A small, non-invasive sensor placed on the patient’s skin captures electrical activity of muscles. Specialized software displays this information on a color monitor for therapist and patient use.
Medical research supports these therapies to help re-establish the muscle strength and coordination required for normal swallowing.
Elements of the treatment program include:
