Abstract

Purpose: The most crucial airway protection mechanism during swallowing is adequate laryngeal elevation. Suprahyoid muscles are responsible for laryngeal elevation. Our study aimed to compare the effects of three different exercises, Shaker, resistance chin tuck (CTAR) exercise, and chin tuck exercise with theraband, on suprahyoid muscles activity responsible for laryngeal elevation.
