Effects of Exercise-Based Dysphagia Interventions
The exercise programs described in the literature vary from the muscle groups targeted, the nature and degree of overload induced by the programs, and even the dosage schedules. Moreover, the quality of available evidence to support specific exercise programs in older adults varies. In this session, we’ll learn about the potential contribution exercise-based interventions make to a comprehensive dysphagia rehabilitation program for older patients, helping you identify the most appropriate exercise-based interventions for the individual’s needs.
You will be able to:
- describe the nature of swallowing impairments suggesting the need for exercise-based interventions
- identify and describe a variety of exercise-based interventions, and explain their intended effects
- discuss the evidence available to support exercise-based dysphagia interventions in elderly populations
