Swallowing Disorders (dysphagia)

 Speech Menu

Swallowing disorders (dysphagia) can cause food or liquid to enter the airway and result in coughing, choking, pulmonary problems, inadequate nutrition and/or hydration, and weight loss. Dysphagia can result from congenital or acquired neurologic damage such as cerebral palsy or stroke, progressive neurologic diseases such as Parkinson�s disease, and surgical revision of the head and neck for treatment of diseases such as cancer.
