What is Dysphagia?

Topics: swallowing and dysphagia

Dysphagia is a disorder of swallowing that impacts an individual's ability to eat and/or swallow liquids properly.  In order to swallow properly, muscle strength and muscle coordination are critical so that the ingested material can be guided appropriately into the stomach tube/esophagus and not be detoured into the airway/trachea.  In this supplement, learn about the symptoms of dysphagia, understand the tests that are used to determine if you have dysphagia, and learn what interventions are available to help rehabilitate and/or compensate for dysphagia.
