Title: Rationale for strength and skill goals in tongue resistance training: A review
Authors: Steele, Catriona M

Issue Date: 2009
Publisher: Perspectives, a peer-reviewed publication of the American Speech-Language Hearing Association Special Interest Division 13 (Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders)
Abstract: Recent evidence in the dysphagia literature shows that tongue resistance training can be used to improve tongue strength. In this review article, we summarize what is known about the tongue and its role in swallowing. We review the literature on tongue pressure generation capacity (strength) and response to tongue resistance exercises. Tongue skill is introduced as a possible alternate goal in tongue resistance training, based on consideration of related literature regarding neural adaptation and improvements in motor performance resulting from treatment approaches in which goal-oriented practice and performance-specific feedback are provided.
