Speech Therapy

Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation (STAR) center provides individualized outpatient speech therapy services from licensed and certified speech-language pathologists.

WHY CHOOSE STAR speech THERAPY?

Our specialty trained speech-language pathologists work to assess, diagnose and treat adults who are experiencing difficulties with their swallowing or have been diagnosed with head and neck cancer. 

CONDITIONS WE TREAT

At Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital, we offer treatments for the following conditions:

  • Therapy for head and neck cancer patients: Head and neck cancers and their associated treatments (e.g. surgery, radiation) often cause changes to swallowing functions and communication abilities. Starting with your diagnosis, our speech-language pathologists will work with you throughout your cancer journey to preserve and rehabilitate these functions. 
  • Swallowing disorders (dysphagia): Swallowing disorders include difficulty swallowing, which may follow an illness, surgery, stroke, injury or head/neck cancer. If you are having difficulty swallowing solids or liquids, our speech-language pathologists will assess your swallowing ability and work with you to determine a treatment plan. 

TREATMENT Options

  • Expiratory muscle strength training
  • Feeding and swallowing treatment, including the McNeill Dysphagia Therapy Program (MDTP)
  • Flexible Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES)
  • Modified Barium Swallow Studies (MBSS) using the Modified Barium Swallow Impairment Profile (MBSImP)
  • Oral-motor exercises
  • Speech and swallow therapy for head and neck cancer including prophylactic dysphagia intervention
