Swallowing Problems

Problems with eating, drinking or swallowing commonly occur as part of a neurological condition. Muscle weakness, slowness and incoordination can significantly affect the complex sequences of movements required to eat, drink and swallow safely. When difficulties are undiagnosed or not managed effectively, there is an increased likelihood of choking episodes, dehydration, weight loss, malnutrition and of developing recurrent chest infections or aspiration pneumonia.
