Treatment depends on the cause, symptoms, and type of swallowing problem.

A speech-language pathologist may recommend:

  • specific swallowing treatment (e.g., exercises to improve muscle movement as well as NMES)
  • positions or strategies to help the individual swallow more effectively
  • specific food and liquid textures that are easier and safer to swallow
