Dysphagia is a health complication allied to the interruption of the bolus flow beginning in the mouth via the pharynx CITATION Sin l 1033 (Singh, et al., 2006). Under the usual condition, swallowing in humans takes a safe food passage through boluses flowing smoothly until they reach the stomach. Nevertheless, disruption due to dysphagia interferes with the food movement and in most cases, some food particles find their way into the air route. Remarkably, some studies indicate that dysphagia in specific does not result in abnormality of the esophagus CITATION Sin l 1033 (Singh, et al., 2006).
Stroke on the other hand is an emergency disorder that occurs when a person experiences a decline in the supply of blood into the brain cellsCITATION Cam19 l 1033 (Campbell, et al., 2019). Stroke has been proved to manifest in three diverse forms. Consequently, any given person may be diagnosed with Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA), complications due to hemorrhagic stroke, otherwise, the patient may be diagnosed with another manifestation of this disease known as ischemic strokeCITATION Die19 l 1033 (Diener, et al., 2019). Furthermore, of the three forms, ischemic stroke adds up to about 87% of all stroke cases. Therefore, this is the utmost popular form of strokeCITATION Die19 l 1033 (Diener, et al., 2019). Stroke has majorly been associations with blood clotting which in turn hinders the flow of blood carrying oxygen to the brain.
