The prevalence of dysphagia is estimated at between 2 and 16% of the population, and it has even been observed that about 90% of the people who suffer from this difficulty in swallowing are neither diagnosed nor properly treated.

Dysphagia has health consequences, which have a significant impact on the quality of life of people, as it is manifested from respiratory complications, dehydration, malnutrition, or a sudden problem related to infections, mainly respiratory or urinary, and even episodes of asphyxiation that can lead to death.

“It is a very common disorder that can arise at any time in life and that affects especially the elderly,” said the expert, who has insisted that this condition is aggravated at Christmases as “the copious meals are more abundant and in which the menus are less suited and personalized.”

The Advanced Neurology Center (CNA) thanks to this specialized unit is achieving great achievements with people affected by dysphagia thanks to the individualized and personalized study of each patient and determining the personalized treatment that each case needs.

A study and treatment carried out by a multidisciplinary team of more than 40 professionals involved in neurologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, neurophysiologists, physiotherapists, nurses, logops and occupational therapists.

The aim is to work on the rehabilitation of the after-effects of surgery or the consequences of a person suffering from cancer or any of the above-mentioned situations and the prevention of some side effects of treatment, through an interdisciplinary team that evaluates all possibilities.

To rehabilitate the patient's ability to safely swallow, the logopeda may indicate sensitivity exercises and improve muscle and oral performance during the treatment of neurogenic dysphagia. Postal adjustments may also be recommended to avoid the entry and aspiration of food in the airways.

The specialized logopeda in this area is qualified to act in the prevention, evaluation and treatment of swallowing disorders in all life cycles, prioritizing patient well-being, minimizing risks and maximizing health-related benefits.
