Dysphagia following stroke consists a complex set of symptoms that arises from impaired functioning of the skeletal muscles involved in swallowing. This impairment results from reduced ability of the muscles to generate the optimum force needed to perform the required actions, the symptom known as muscle weakness. It is commonly believed that muscle weakness in dysphagia results from a decrease in muscle activity due to reduced voluntary motor unit recruitment. Therefore, strengthening… CONTINUE READING
