Behavioral: Mendelsohn Maneuver
Mendelsohn Maneuver with Surface Electromyography
- Change in Duration of Superior Hyolaryngeal Movement [ Time Frame: baseline and six weeks ]Change in duration of superior elevation of hyoid bone.
- Change in Duration of Hyoid Maximum Anterior Excursion [ Time Frame: Baseline and 6 weeks ]Change in the duration of maximum anterior movement of the hyoid bone during swallowing.
- Change in Oral Intake Ability [ Time Frame: Baseline and 6 weeks ]Oral Intake Ability was measure with the Dysphagia Outcome and Severity Scale. A 7 is normal and a 1 is complete inability to consume any food safely. The means reported for treatment and no treatment periods are mean changes in scores throughout the period.
- Change in Duration of Opening of Upper Esophageal Sphincter [ Time Frame: Baseline and 6 weeks ]Change in duration of pre- and post-treatment duration of UES opening.
