Detraining outcomes with expiratory muscle strength training in Parkinson disease

Michelle S. Troche, PhD, et al.

Information related to detraining following dysphagia rehabilitation is highly relevant in populations with neurodegenerative disease where dysphagia and aspiration are often considered inevitable. Individuals with Parkinson disease often succumb to complications of dysphagia and resulting pulmonary sequelae. Therefore, long-term dysphagia management is a top priority throughout the progression of the disease. Expiratory muscle strength training has been found to provide specific, clinically meaningful gains to swallowing and cough function. This preliminary study highlights the need for the development of maintenance programs to sustain function following intensive periods of training.
