Neuro Muscular Electric Stimulation
The Center for Speech and Language, T.C., LLC treats disorders of swallow using both traditional dysphagia methods and Neuro Muscular Electric Stimulation.
NMES or e-stim is proven to be effective in the treatment of swallowing disorders.
Electrical current is used to stimulate key muscles while the patient practices swallowing. The result is improved swallowing function through muscle re-eduction.
Our staff is trained in the treatment of swallowing disorders and dedicated to the return of a functional swallow using a combination of traditional dysphagia therapy and neuromuscular electrical stimulation to ensure the best outcome for our patients.
