Chances are almost every family will deal with either a stroke or other catastrophic muscle debilitating illness, trauma or injury - usually, this produces an inability to adequately formulate and articulate words and phrases. Most likely, these patients will require certain retraining from a speech pathologist or an orofacial mycologist to strengthen the lips, tongue and facial muscles.

In fact, facial exercisers look better and better while surgical recipients are thinking ..." when will I have to do this again?"
