“Know your anatomy!”
Some of the best advice I ever got when I was a new clinician. Here’s a video I came across on youtube that really is a nice general overview of some of the essential structures in swallowing. Here is also a text resource Clinical Anatomy & Physiology of the Swallow Mechanism by Corbin-Lewis & Liss that is a keeper for your library.
Viewer Discretion is Advised (Well, not really.) If you find this interesting we will work to pull more anatomy videos together to create a nice resource. So share with the SLP world and be sure to leave some feedback below. Enjoy!
