Swallowing & Feeding Therapy Near Radford, VA

Swallowing disorders (Dysphagia) and feeding difficulties can occur due to a variety of conditions such as disease processes and post-surgical status, and may occur during all stages of life. These issues may affect an individual‘s nutritional state and overall health and should be addressed as soon as possible. Our speech-language pathologists diagnose and treat many types of swallowing and feeding disorders including those that affect:

  • THE SWALLOWING REFLEX
  • CHEWING & SUCKING DIFFICULTIES
  • ASPIRATION OF FOOD/DRINKS
  • MOVING FOODS/DRINKS INTO THE THROAT AND/OR STOMACH

Some of the signs that indicate that an individual may benefit from swallowing and feeding therapy include: coughing, choking, wet or gurgling sound during or immediately after eating or drinking, extended time necessary to chew or swallow food, food and/or drinks becoming stuck in or leaking from the mouth, recurrent pneumonia and/or chest congestion, and weight loss and/or dehydration. Ultimately, these conditions create an unpleasant eating and drinking experience for the patient and may eventually result in embarrassment, social isolation, pneumonia, chronic lung disease, and severe dehydration and/or malnutrition.
