Speech issues can occur for a number of different reasons. While most commonly after a stroke, the natural aging process can also accelerate speech issues. Various muscles and tissues can weaken and become less elastic then before. However, speech therapy can help you communicate effectively once again through vocal exercises. Being able to communicate to loved ones and medical practitioners can greatly increase one’s quality of life. Speech therapy can help bring back your loved one’s dignity and happiness as well as allow essential communication to continue.
Your physical therapy plan begins with an initial examination and input from your medical team. We will also work with you and your family to learn what is important to your wellbeing. Next, your treatment will begin with the goal of reducing pain, improving overall physical function and preventing disability. The final goal will include regaining mobility for daily activities.
