Therapy for the vital functions includes exercises for the face, tongue, breathing, and swallowing. Treatment of these areas is of particular importance when facial weakness, swallowing, and respiratory difficulties are involved. You can do breathing and facial exercises anytime. Breathing exercises are particularly useful for active recuperation when a patient becomes fatigued from other activities and for relaxation if the patient is tense or in pain.
