Did you know it takes about 50 pairs of muscles and 6 cranial nerves working together for human beings to swallow? If anything goes wrong anywhere in the process, it may cause a disorder known as dysphagia.
Swallowing and feeding disorders are common in children. It's estimated between 25% and 45% of normally developing children have some form of the condition.
VitalStim Therapy is a non-invasive FDA approved method to improve swallowing through the application of electrical stimulation to the swallowing muscles.
