The theme for this issue of Perspectives is exercise physiology and applications thereof to swallowing and dysphagia rehabilitation. Lori Burkhead begins this issue with a discussion of the applications of exercise science to dysphagia rehabilitation. Steele, Bailey, Molfenter, and Yeates review the literature on strength and skill goals in tongue resistance training. Cathy Lazarus addresses the effects of tongue exercise programs to improve tongue strength and swallow functioning and the effects of radiotherapy ± chemotherapy on tissues and on oropharyngeal swallowing. Kays and Robbins apply tongue endurance measures to functional dining. Finally, Joe Murray offers Food for Thought regarding the importance of self-assessment and self-evaluation of our current practices in dysphagia assessment and treatment and how to achieve improvement. Thank you to all our authors for sharing their time and for the excellent quality of their contributions.
