TherapyWorks has worked wonders in Joel’s life. Some of the vast improvements are an increase in his over all strength, better speech, improvement of fine motor skills and behavior, and the ability to transition from one activity to the next. The biggest improvement has been his eating. Joel has had a history of recurrent pneumonia from aspiration. Because of this, he could eat nothing by mouth, and had to receive all his nutrition through a g-tube. After just six months of VitalStim® Therapy, he is now able to taste and eat small bites of some soft foods.
