Speech therapy & GBS: Speech therapy can be very helpful to improve speech and promote safe swallowing in patients who have significant weakness of the tongue, palate and throat, or who have had a tracheostomy. Physical therapy can also be very helpful to attempt to minimize physical function deficits and prevent muscle wasting and joint contractures.

Guillain-Barre: Hello, yes both can help with this disorder. There is a tendency for many to limit their outings and become housetied. Make friends who encourage you to get out and have a great time so that you forget about it for a while. The pain may never end, but you can decrease it with the help of your doctor and friends and family. Try to speak more slowly so others will not notice the slowing of speech..
