Vital-Stim Therapy: Empowering Swallowing Rehabilitation and Quality of Life

Swallowing difficulties can significantly impact a person’s overall well-being and quality of life. At our clinic, we offer specialized Vital-Stim Therapy to help individuals regain their ability to swallow safely and confidently. Our experienced physical therapists are dedicated to providing effective and personalized swallowing rehabilitation to improve the lives of our clients.

We take a comprehensive and evidence-based approach to Vital-Stim Therapy. Our primary goal is to help individuals regain their ability to swallow safely and efficiently. We understand that each person’s needs are unique, so our skilled physical therapists work closely with clients to develop personalized treatment plans that address their specific challenges and goals.

Our Process

Evaluation and Assessment: Our dedicated team of physical therapists conducts a thorough evaluation and assessment to understand the underlying causes and severity of the swallowing difficulties. This assessment includes a review of medical history, observation of swallowing function, and potentially instrumental assessments such as a Modified Barium Swallow Study or Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing. These evaluations help us gain a comprehensive understanding of the individual’s swallowing impairments and guide the development of an effective treatment plan.

Customized Treatment Plan: Based on the evaluation results, our physical therapists develop a customized treatment plan that is tailored to the individual’s specific needs and goals. The plan may include a combination of Vital-Stim Therapy, traditional swallowing exercises, diet modifications, and strategies for improving overall oral-motor function.

Vital-Stim Therapy Sessions: Vital-Stim Therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses neuromuscular electrical stimulation to target the muscles involved in swallowing. During the therapy sessions, small electrodes are placed on the skin over the targeted muscles, and low-level electrical pulses are delivered. These pulses help stimulate the muscles, improve muscle strength and coordination, and retrain the swallowing reflex. Vital-Stim Therapy is typically performed in conjunction with swallowing exercises and techniques to maximize its effectiveness.

Progress Monitoring and Adjustment: Our physical therapists closely monitor each individual’s progress throughout the therapy process. Regular reassessments are conducted to track improvements and make any necessary adjustments to the treatment plan. We believe in open communication and collaboration with our clients, ensuring that their feedback is valued and integrated into their therapy program.

“I’ve been here twice. The first was a 60 minute massage and simply felt wonderful. The second was to help with a muscle injury in my back. The massage was great and did a lot more to help me recover quickly than I’d ever thought. Both massage therapists were very courteous and professional and the entire experience was great. I highly recommend Max Well.”
