Speech Therapy

When you sustain serious injuries or live with certain chronic conditions, you may experience changes in bodily functions and skills. A number of conditions can affect your speech and throat if they touch a specific area of the brain. While individuals may learn to adapt to speech difficulties, speech therapy can be an excellent way to accommodate and correct speech conditions. At PAM Health, we have speech therapy pathologists on staff to treat difficulties with speaking.

Speech Conditions We Treat

There is a variety of conditions and disorders that affect speech. While they all operate differently, they can all benefit from the expertise of a speech pathologist. Disorders we can treat include:

  • Developmental delays
  • Neurological events/diseases
  • Head/neck cancer
  • Illnesses like stroke, Parkinson's and multiple sclerosis

Signs of potential speech disorders include stuttering, elongated speech, jerking movements in conversation and difficulty conveying ideas. Speech pathologists will use many methods to treat these symptoms.

Our Speech Therapy Approach

We focus on individualized treatment, which includes fully understanding a patient's condition and working alongside other specialists to treat various difficulties associated with the disorder. It is typical for speech and occupational therapy to work together to improve patient function. Our speech therapy practice works with people of all ages to improve speech, swallowing and nutrition to account for potential choking risks.

When you work with our speech pathologists, you will learn various therapies to cultivate better speech practices. These therapies may include:

  • Neuromuscular re-education for voice and swallowing muscles
  • Activities to support communication abilities, such as conversation practice
  • Cognitive language techniques like problem solving, memory and organization

In addition to our speech pathologists and therapy sessions, we have diagnostic services for examining swallowing muscles, vocal cords and functional voice. With these technologies, our pathologists can form a greater understanding of a patient's speech difficulties and further personalize their treatment plan.

Outcomes and Goals

The overarching goal of speech therapy is to improve a patient's quality of life and help them become more independent. Our speech therapy can also inspire confidence and encourage patients to continue working hard at their speech conditions. Speech therapy also aims to improve communication between the brain and body, enhance language learning and provide alternative means of communication.

The outcomes of speech therapy relate to both speech and attitude. With persistent speech therapy, a patient can:

  • Improve speech and vocal quality
  • Increase swallowing function
  • Develop substantial expressions of thoughts
  • Feel more confident

While goals and outcomes will change based on a patient's disorder and needs, the benefits that accompany speech therapy make it a worthwhile option for many people. At PAM, we offer a full range of specialist support to ensure you achieve your goals in the best way possible.
