Hi,

I have been unable to swallow for 2 years now and at present I am having treatment called DPNS (deep pharyngeal neuromuscular stimulation). It hasn't made much difference to my swallowing so I would like to try Vitalstim therapy. As I am from the United Kingdom, as far as I know, its not been used here. I would like to know if anyone has any addresses of hospitals that use Vitalstim in the United Kingdom.

When I seached the internet to try and locate the hospitals myself, I came across the ALSforums website that states that Vitalstim is used in the UK, North America and abroad. Here's the link, https://www.alsforums.com/als-mnd-news/therapy/11.html


Thank you

Littlerock
