Knute Nelson specializes in providing innovative and effective treatments for physical therapy (LSVT® BIG) and speech therapy (LSVT® LOUD). Knute Nelson is one of the few organizations that has certified clinicians in both programs.
VitalStim Therapy is designed to help swallowing through the use of Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES). Electrical stimulation is used to aid muscle strengthening to rehabilitate the swallow.
