Electrical Stimulation and Speech Therapy
I did a bit of Speech Therapy as a kid, mostly exercises that I still do on my own (when I remember it!). It didn’t help much, and I’ve always thought of it as a waste of time, energy and money when it comes to progressive diseases. Now that new treatments are supposed to be a game changer though, I thought it might be worth another shot. My therapist uses techniques like Surface Electromyography (sEMG), Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) and Neuromuscular Taping (NT). I’ve always been wary of experimenting, even with minimally invasive techniques, so I’d really appreciate the Community’s personal experience.
Are there any risks or side effects? Is there anything I should be cautious about? Is it beneficial after all?
