Speech Therapy for Parkinson’s Disease
One of the most frustrating symptoms of Parkinson’s disease is the gradual weakening of muscles that control speech.
Allegiance Home Health provides licensed Speech and Language Pathologists also known as Speech Therapists that are well versed in treating the symptoms common with Parkinson’s. Speaking can become a difficult task for those diagnosed with Parkinson’s as a result of decreased motor control of the muscles that allow us to speak. The muscles that control talking are responsible for speech to be pronounced loud and clear. When you or your loved one has difficulty speaking it becomes difficult communicating and creates social issues. These issues can cause withdrawal at many levels; communication at social events, professional obligations and even intimate relationships at home can all suffer. Low volume, unclear speech is one of the most common symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease.
Our expert Speech Therapists prescribe an exercise program that strengthens and facilitates normal actions of the muscles used for voice, speech and swallowing. We can teach compensatory strategies in talking including motor planning activities to improve talking with a higher volume.
Our Speech Therapists have a proven track record improving communication for those diagnosed with Parkinson’s. Call us today for a complimentary home assessment.
