To be able to accurately assess and develop a treatment plan for dysphagia, it is of the utmost importance to understand the system, including the muscles, central nervous system and cranial nerves. The ability to understand the neuroanatomy and physiology of a normal swallow will enable clinicians to more accurately complete their assessment, diagnosis and treatment of dysphagia. Understanding the normal swallow, variations of normal and disordered swallows is key for all members involved in the dysphagia plan of care. Understanding compensations, maneuvers, strategies and when to request instrumental assessments is a large part of our daily job.
