Active Comparator: Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation
Subjects will receice Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES)-stimulated swallowing combined with exercise therapy.
Behavioral: Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation
Through low voltage current delivered through the skin, motor nerves are excited, causing muscle contraction.
Sham Comparator: Unstimulated
Subjects will receive sham (unstimulated) swallow therapy combined with exercise therapy.
No current is generated.
