Handout: Radiation Fibrosis Syndrome

Handout: Radiation Fibrosis Syndrome

Regular price $5.00 Sale

This handout is designed for rehabilitation therapists working with patients who are experiencing radiation fibrosis syndrome after undergoing radiation treatment. The handout describes the physiological changes that result in this condition and provides specific information about how radiation fibrosis syndrome can affect the swallow muscles following radiation treatment for head/neck cancer. The handout encourages those seeking radiation treatment services to seek the services of a speech-language pathologist to begin dysphagia therapy before, during, and after radiation treatment, as research has shown that this reduces the risk of chronic dysphagia (see sources on handout).
