Strategies for Swallowing Problems

September 28, 2015 | Categories for this post are: Volume 6

 

Research estimates that as high as 95% of persons with Parkinson’s disease eventually develop swallowing problems. Currently available  anti Parkinson drugs do not consistently improve swallowing function or prevent the development of swallowing problems, which has led swallowing researchers to explore other factors, such as:

– Diet modifications,

– Swallowing exercises

– Strategies used when eating and drinking,

– Improving the coordination of breathing and swallowing,

– Improving oral hygiene
