We often forsake the most simplistic forms of living as human beings (walking, talking, seeing, hearing, etc.) until we lose one of these foundational functions that make life easy and enjoyable. Most commonly found in elderly adults, oropharyngeal dysphagia is a swallowing disorder that makes the eating and digestion of food difficult or sometimes impossible. This disorder makes what is usually an everyday function a daily struggle to live a normal, independent life. This disorder is something many of our residents here at Country Club Rehabilitation Campus deal with on a daily basis. Because of this, our skilled nurses provide exceptional services through VitalStim Therapy.
What is VitalStim Therapy?
VitalStim Therapy is an innovative technology that helps restore the swallowing function to patients with dysphagia disorder. VitalStim Therapy accomplishes this with the use of a portable device that delivers a small electrical current to the muscles around the throat thus revitalizing the throats motor nerves and the patient’s ability to swallow. Simultaneously, our nurses help our residents relearn their normal swallowing function allowing them to slowly regain control of their independence. This innovative technology has been approved by the FDA and has been helping thousands of people of all ages regain one of the foundational functions of living.
