Brazosport Rehabilitation & Wellness provides Vital Stim Therapy
for patients that experience swallowing disorders.  Vital Stim
Therapy is a new medical break through used in the treatment of
swallowing disorders.  It is an active rehabilitation program,
combining the benefits of neuromuscular electrical stimulation
and volitional therapeutic programming.  This new therapy
incorporates a specialized neuromuscular electrical stimulation
system and uniquely designed service electrodes to stimulate
inactive swallowing musculatures commonly found in patients with
dysphagia.  Using this procedure allows the therapist to
implement an active therapy to create or relearn functional
muscle patterns necessary to initiate or re-establish swallowing.

Before an individual can being the regime of vital stim therapy,
the individual must first have a swallow video completed.  This
video then is used as a tool to establish correct placement of
electrodes on the individual’s throat.  The main goal of vital stim
therapy is to strengthen weak muscles and to help in the
recovery of motor –control.  This procedure can be used on both
pediatric and adult patents.  Course of treatment consists of 2-5
sessions per week at 3-4 weeks at a time.
