Phelps Health Outpatient Therapy Services offers specialized programs for adults with speech, language or swallowing disabilities. One of these programs is VitalStim® Therapy, a noninvasive treatment that uses an electrical current to stimulate the muscles responsible for swallowing. Trained staff at Phelps Health can help patients “re-educate” their muscles by doing special exercises with VitalStim® Therapy
If you have experienced difficulty swallowing or pronouncing words or trouble speaking, consider Phelps Health’s speech-language pathology services, which can address a large range of speech, language and swallowing disabilities that can occur after a stroke, trauma, neurological changes or the normal aging process.
