Two of the greatest human needs are the ability to communicate with others and the ability to eat and drink safely, and if you are having difficulty with either of these it can impact all aspects of your life. Speech-language pathologists can help by determining the nature and extent of your impairment and designing a unique treatment plan to meet your individual needs and goals.
Our speech-language pathologists are experts in their field and are committed to providing the most current and thorough treatment programs to help you recover as efficiently and comprehensively as possible.
One of the therapy techniques offered at Sheltering Arms is VitalStim®. If you are struggling with a swallowing difficulty, this neuromuscular electrical stimulation therapy approved by the FDA may make the difference between being able to eat and depending on a feeding tube. VitalStim® therapy uses small electrical currents to stimulate the muscles used for swallowing. One of our skilled speech-language pathologists will work with you to “re-train” these muscles. The repetition of the electrical currents and training sessions helps to re-educate the muscles to begin swallowing again.
