Dysphagia Therapy

Robins Physiocare Provides Best Dysphagia Therapy in Gurgaon

Difficulty swallowing (dysphagia) means it takes more time and effort to move food or liquid from your mouth to your stomach.  In some cases, swallowing may be impossible. Dysphagia can occur at any age, but it’s more common in older adults. The causes of swallowing problems vary, and treatment depends on the cause.

How Do i Know If I Have a Swalling Problem?

Under normal circumstances, people rarely choke during a meal. Occasionally, food will stick in the esophagus for a few seconds (especially solid foods), but will pass spontaneously or can be washed down easily with liquids. But there are a number of symptoms that you should get checked for a possible swallowing problem, including:

  • Frequent choking on food
  • Hesitancy in food passage for more than a few seconds
  • Pain when swallowing
  • Recurring pneumonia (an indication that food may be going into the lungs rather than the oesophagus)
