While this should be a rather simple answer the general consensus is widely varied within the SLP community. Not surprisingly, most of the people we talk to who actually used the therapy believe in the efficacy of the treatment. However, is this merely a self-fulfilling prophecy or actual data? The truth is yes, NMS in conjunction with other traditional therapy methods will expedite a patient’s recovery. One of the most important aspects of this treatment modality for Dysphagia Therapy is understanding patient outcomes and expectations. Therer are a lot of variables that come into play as it pertains to patient advocacy and even the slightest misinterpretation can lead to disappointing outcomes. Another interesting observation is the difference in opinion on NMS for Dysphagia Therapy is the age gap. Students who are either in school or who have graduated in the last 10 years seem to be much more receptive to the treatment than those who were finished with school before the treatment was ever introduced into the curriculum. Therefore it’s understandable why we see some pushback from those who have more experience with traditional therapy.
