VOICE

Voice therapy is like physical therapy for your voice. Sessions include a combination of education for a complete understanding of therapy practices and rationale, instruction for therapeutic exercises, and strategies to apply techniques to the conversation.

Voice therapy sessions consist of evidence-based exercises to heal injured vocal folds and rehabilitate your speaking and singing voice back to its most functional state.  It is also valuable to undergo voice therapy to learn techniques and therapeutic exercises to promote an optimal healing environment for your voice after vocal cord surgery. Referrals from a physician and self-referrals are accepted.  

Common diagnoses treated include, but are not limited to:

  • Muscle Tension Dysphonia

  • Chronic hoarseness

  • Vocal cord nodules, polyps, cysts, granulomas, and other benign vocal cord lesions

  • Vocal cord paralysis or paresis (weakness)

  • Vocal fatigue and strain

  • Age-related voice changes (i.e. vocal cord atrophy or "bowed" vocal cords)

  • Chronic cough and throat clearing

  • Vocal Cord Dysfunction (VCD)/Paradoxical Vocal Cord Motion (PVFM)

  • Spasmodic Dysphonia (SD)
