Abstract

Oncologic treatments, such as Radio- therapy and Chemo-radiation, for head and neck cancer can cause long-term swallowing impairments (dysphagia) that negatively impact the Quality of life. Radiation-induced dysphagia consists of a broad spectrum of structural, mechanical, and neurologic deficits. The goal of this study is to understand the importance of Onco Rehabilitation during Radiation and Chemo-Radiation to minimize the incidence of Dysphagia during the Treatment, which ultimately causes delay in Overall Treatment Time (OTT).
