has anyone had this treatment in the U.K. and how effective was it ?
I guess no one here has tried it.
(VitalStim® Therapy is a safe and effective treatment for patients suffering with difficulty swallowing or dysphagia.
The VitalStim® Therapy System is a non-invasive therapy to help swallowing through the use of Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES). Electrical stimulation is used to aid muscle strengthening and muscle recruitment to rehabilitate the swallow.)
we have tried it and my dad is now swallowing thick liquids. I heard a mention of it in one of your earlier posts and that's how we found out about it . Best thing we ever did , got no help with NHS and it falls on patients/families to find other solutions . It's a shame they don't offer it as it could help many patients.
