If your doctor orders a swallow study, we will travel directly to your place of residence and perform the study in our medical van.
Do you have trouble swallowing? Are you unexpectedly losing weight for no apparent reason? Do you avoid eating certain foods for risk of choking? If so, you may be a good candidate for a swallow study, and at TwinCity Medical Mobile, we can conduct the test in a convenient, hassle-free manner aboard our traveling medical van.
Your physician will determine if you need a swallow study, but you might be a good candidate if:
- You experience pain while swallowing
- You are unable to swallow altogether
- You experience the sensation of food getting stuck in your throat or in your sternum while eating
- You are constantly hoarse or have frequent heartburn
- Food comes back up your throat after swallowing
All of these are signs of dysphagia, a condition marked by swallowing difficulties, unexplained weight loss, and a variety of other symptoms. If your doctor orders a swallow study, we will travel directly to your place of residence and perform the study in our traveling medical van, which is equipped with the latest technology and innovative equipment. By traveling directly to assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and other care facilities, we eliminate hassle during swallow studies and provide our patients with a convenient, beneficial experience.
We are driven to provide those living with dysphagia compassionate and convenient services when they need a swallow study. For more information about our unique approach to swallow studies or our traveling medical services, reach out to us at TwinCity Medical Mobile today.
