Dysphagia workshop.

Dysphagia and a persistent cough:

'The solution may be simpler than you think!'

A Practitioners Guide.

The FNFT: dysphagia workshop is a program designed for professionals who have been frustrated with 'hard-to-solve' dysphagia presentations.


Time and time again patients are shuffled from doctors to specialists, for scans and investigations only to find little or no clear explanation for their dysphagia. Don't be the therapist who simply refers them on. This workshop developed by world-leading Myotherapist, Timothy King unpacks a simple yet commonly overlooked cause of common clinical dysphagia and persistent coughing that EVERY therapist should know about. 

'You can be a god-send for the patient afflicted with these symptoms who have found imaging and testing at a loss to explain their symptoms.'
