Research on treatment of oropharyngeal dysphagia has supported several treatment approaches. Treatment can include postural changes, heightening preswallow sensory input, voluntary swallow maneuvers, and exercises. Evidence to support the efficacy of these procedures is variable. An instrumental study of a patient's oropharyngeal swallow forms the basis for treatment selection.
