Swallowing Therapy

After a stroke or brain injury, difficulty swallowing or dysphagia is common. Below are some features that you may notice.

A licensed speech language pathologist (SLP) can diagnose and treat these problems.

  • difficulty chewing: having trouble breaking down crunchy or sticky foods

  • drooling or spillage: losing saliva or food/liquid from one or both sides of your mouth

  • food residue: "pocketing" of food in one or both sides or your  mouth after you swallow or a feeling of food or liquid "stuck" in your throat after you swallow.

  • fatigue: tiring out part way through a meal

  • coughing: coughing or clearing your throat when you eat

  • aspiration: food or liquids going into your airway (diagnosed by a video swallow study)
