VitalStim Therapy

The treatment of dysphasia is primarily focused on preventing inhalation of fluid or particles into the lungs (aspiration). Untreated aspiration can result in pneumonia. VitalStim Therapy is an FDA cleared method to improve swallowing through the application of electrical stimulation to the swallowing muscles. The goal is to strengthen and re-educate those muscles to improve motor control for swallowing.

I was born with Spina Bifida, which is a neurological birth defect. Up to 2022, I had difficulty being understood. I began working with John Keim & he gave me the benefit of his talents and education in speech therapy. His patience, understanding, and care gave me the confidence and motivation to improve. I have gone from being understood 60% of the time to 90-95% of the time. I was told for 40 years my speech would never improve, but with John’s expertise, I am proving the naysayers wrong. Thank you, FYZICAL!
