Randomized Clinical Trial Examining the Effects of Tongue Strengthening Exercises

Tongue strength is reduced in patients treated with chemoradiotherapy for oral/pharyngeal cancer, however, there have been no studies examining the efficacy of tongue strengthening exercises on tongue strength, swallowing, and quality of life.  Led by our very own research director and speech pathologist, Cathy Lazarus, the THANC Foundation performs a randomized clinical trial examining the effects of a tongue strengthening program paired with traditional exercises versus traditional exercises alone.
