Improve the Safety of your Swallow

SFS Therapies is proud to announce our newest service offered!  As of the month of October, we now offer Modified Barium Swallow Studies (MBSS) for the complete evaluation of swallowing disorders!


Modified Barium Swallow Studies are the most effective way of diagnosing a swallowing disorder (dysphagia).  Now partnering with Steinberg Diagnostics, our speech pathologists will be able to take an inside look at your mouth and throat to fully diagnose your possible dysphagia.  MBSS uses an x-ray machine to be able to see the muscles and cartilages of your throat.

Patients are asked to eat and drink different consistencies mixed with barium (a substance that can be visualized on x-ray machines), while the speech pathologist assesses the swallow.  The best part is that this outpatient evaluation is FAST and results are ready immediately!  Recommendations regarding ways to improve the safety of your swallow, as well as possible therapy, will be discussed with you immediately following the evaluation.

A Modified Barium Swallow Study may be recommended if you feel you have a swallowing disorder.

If you have difficulty eating or drinking, feel that foods/drinks are going “down the wrong pipe”, or feel food “getting caught” in your throat, call SFS Therapies today for a complete assessment of your swallowing abilities.  We are constantly growing and improving to best serve the people of the Las Vegas Valley. We are #NotYourAverageClinic.

Living in the Moment.

It’s a hustling and bustling life. You pack the lunches, set out the outfits, keep your ear out for the morning news, all while keeping tabs on your children. You’re grabbing your coffee, loading your car for your lengthy commute and you’re coming to the realization that you’re just “going through the motions”. When was the last time you felt present in the moment?

 

Are you finding yourself waking up tired even with an adequate 8 hours of sleep? Did you notice the busy birds dancing over the street lights above you? Mindfulness is the ability to live in the present moment and focusing your attention to a specific task.  It’s a state of being that you should feel perfectly content with- living right here, right now, accepting that and moving on.

 

When we practice mindfulness we aren’t only improving our attitudes and behaviors but in conjunction with our physical and psychological well-being. Our Clinician Miss Rachel is all about mindfulness.  Take a look at how it’s helping Issac to engage in his therapy exercises!  We’re #NotYourAverageClinic.
