Get Back to Eating: Head and Neck Cancer


Have you had trouble getting back to eating or drinking after completing your head and neck cancer treatment? Are you frustrated by still having to use a feeding tube? If so, speech therapy for head and neck cancer may be right for you!


Speech therapy can help with swallowing strength, improving movement in your tongue, jaw, and neck following radiation and/or surgery, and managing tightness in your muscles and skin.


If you are a candidate for electrical stimulation, you and your speech language pathologist can add this to your treatment plan to help you progress to eating and drinking what you want again!


No matter how long it has been since finishing cancer treatment, working with a speech language pathologist can help you work toward your goals.
