The objective of this study was to carry out an orofacial motor therapy application protocol, including in the myotherapeutic management the application of electrostimulation to facilitate movement in Parkinson's patients.

Materials and methods: Research carried out in the period between 2016 and 2019 in the speech therapy service of a Parkinson's patient care institution in the city. The sample consisted of 254 Parkinson's patients, with no other underlying clinical pathology.

A transcranial photobiomodulation therapy application program with LLLT was applied to these patients; differential muscle therapy; structural functionality; EMS type electrostimulation, in nerve conduction programming. Swallowing acoustic analysis was performed, at the beginning and at the end, the data were reviewed and compared with those presented at the beginning.

Results and conclusions: According to the information obtained and analyzed from this study, it is evident that the application of this protocol of transcranial photobiomodulation therapy and electrical stimulation to driving management allows the speech therapist to perform a precise and rapid intervention that will speed up the recovery process of the protective mechanism of the airway in the Parkinson Patient.
