Voice Therapy

Overview

Symptoms

Our Unique Approach

A voice disorder, or dysphonia, can occur from a physical change (e.g. vocal nodules and polyps, laryngitis), neurologic injury (e.g. vocal fold paralysis, Parkinson's disease) or behavioral factors (e.g. dysphonia caused by stress or excessive voice use).

 

Therapy focuses on developing more efficient habits and training a better way of speaking or singing. Therapy is sometimes the preferred method over surgery, or can be done in conjunction with surgery to create the best results.

Symptoms of a vocal injury can include:

  • Change in voice quality, including: hoarseness, raspiness, breathiness, strain or strangle, or loss of voice
  • Reduced pitch range, or breaks in pitch
  • Reduced ability to project voice
  • Increase in effort to speak or sing, fatigue, or reduced stamina
  • Repeated throat clearing or coughing
  • Sensation of soreness, pain, or lump in the throat
