Swallowing Disorders Therapy

Are you having trouble swallowing food and drink as a result of illness or injury? Our team of speech pathologists at Sheltering Arms Institute can provide the help and resources you need to overcome this challenge.

Swallowing is a highly complex skill that can be affected by neurological or structural changes to your body’s natural mechanics. Difficulty swallowing, or dysphagia, refers to impairment of any part of the swallowing process. Dysphagia can greatly impact overall health and quality of life and is commonly treated in physical rehabilitation, especially within the aging population.

Our speech-language pathologists are experts in all aspects of speech and swallowing treatments. We understand that managing these issues can be challenging, but know that we will be here for support and to guide you every step of the way.
