Marion Rehabilitation & Assisted Living Center is now offering VITAL STIM THERAPY
Cara Burkett, Speech Language Pathologist, is a certified Vital Stim provider.
Vital Stim is a reliable treatment technique for patients suffering from Dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) that is backed by research and proven in the field. This treatment uses swallowing exercise in conjunction with neuromuscular electric stimulation to speed the recovery of those with swallowing problems and to help avoid complications. This modality is being used in clinics and hospitals with tremendous results! The technique is the only one cleared by the FDA to restore swallowing function! Some typical patients that may need VST might include: Stroke, Deconditioning as a result of age or comorbidity, Head and Neck cancer post radiation and/or surgery, Parkinson’s, ALS, and various other Neuromuscular diseases.
