Jo Frost is a speech and language therapist in independent practice. She has over 20 years of experience working with adults with traumatic brain injuries who have communication and swallowing disorders. With a strong passion for functional context sensitive rehabilitation Jo has been delighted to work with many clients to maximise their potential in both communication and swallowing.
Neuro Muscular Electrical Stimulation can be an effective treatment when used with specific targeted rehabilitation exercises to improve dysphagia ( swallowing problems) that can occur after neurological injury. In 2014 NICE allowed this procedure to be used with special considerations. We have been using this treatment and have seen some considerable improvements in people with previously unresolved dysphagia.
