Dysphagia Therapy

(Taiwanese Minnan) Dysphagia Swallowing Exercise – Chin Tuck Against Resistance with Ball 臺灣閩南語(臺語) 吞嚥障礙復健運動-下巴阻抗運動 CTAR 創始者示範運用橡皮球做練習

GDM would like to express our heartfelt thanks to the Taiwanese SLP team for their help in translation and presentation of the Taiwanese Minnan Version of the CTAR video.

This Taiwanese Minnan translated CTAR video and blog post are initiative of the Global Dysphagia Movement (GDM).


The Chin Tuck Againt Resistance (CTAR) exercise works on strengthening the suprahyoid muscles, necessary for opening your upper food pipe sphincter (or known as the upper esophageal sphincter) to allow food to enter the stomach. 


Since CTAR was introduced in 2013, Mr Yoon (The CTAR inventor) has been receiving enquiries from clinicians from around the world. We hope that this video will provide the details to facilitate the carrying out of the exercise.
