Common Disorders We Treat


VitalStim® Therapy is the first proven treatment for dysphagia. It's the only dysphagia therapy backed by compelling clinical data and cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). VitalStim Therapy uses small electrical currents to stimulate the muscles responsible for swallowing. At the same time, we help patients "re-educate" their muscles through rehabilitation therapy.
