3.  VitalStim is the one and only neuromuscular electrical stimulation the FDA approved to improve or restore the ability to swallow.  It uses electrical currents in order to stimulate the muscles in charge of swallowing.  An expert guides the patient through different exercises to “re-educate” the swallowing muscles.

 

4.  VitalStim is different from conventional therapy in several ways.  It puts both the compensatory strategy techniques and the specific techniques to use.  Its main goal is to aid the strength and muscles used in swallowing.  Stimulating these muscles both electrically and through traditional treatment has proven to be extremely effective. 

 

5.  It can be used for all ages and is recommended to be used for 45-60 minutes 3-5 times a week.  You can expect results anywhere from 8-12 weeks.  In general,  patients who use VitalStim are diagnosed with dysphagia.
