Abstract

Dysphagia rehabilitation is employed for various types of swallowing disorders due to cerebrovascular accident, Parkinson's disease, or surgical treatments of head and neck cancers. A team approach is necessary to accurately diagnose the state of the swallowing disorder and administer adequate treatment, including rehabilitation. In chronic severe cases, community medicine involving various facilities is often effective and essential. This paper introduces the dysphagia rehabilitation performed in our hospital through two cases attributable to cerebrovascular accident and one case caused by Parkinson's disease.
