About The Book

A thoroughly practical and easy-to-use handbook for clinicians who evaluate and treat dysphagia in patients with movement disorders. The authors cover the depth and breadth of the state of the art and science of dysphagia management in these populations, examining conditions including Parkinson’s disease, progressive supranuclear palsy, dystonia, Huntington’s disease, and other movement disorders. Other critical components of the book include sections on normal swallowing, an overview of procedures to evaluate swallowing, medical and surgical management approaches to movement disorders, and special nutritional considerations.
