Voice Therapy Q & A

What problems can affect my voice?

Numerous medical conditions affecting your larynx, or voice box, can lead to voice problems.

 

The team of voice experts at Lakeshore diagnose and treat the following common voice problems:

  • Acute or chronic laryngitis
  • Vocal cord lesions
  • Nodules dues to vocal cord trauma
  • Vocal cord hemorrhage
  • Vocal fold cysts
  • Vocal fold scarring
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Laryngeal cancer
  • Aging voice
  • Vocal fold paralysis
  • Spasmodic dysphonia and laryngeal tremor

For professional singers, actors, and anyone who relies heavily on their voice, these conditions can be detrimental.

What is voice therapy?

Voice therapy is similar to physical therapy, but for your voice. If you’re a singer, actor, or otherwise rely on the quality of your voice, maintaining good vocal health is vital.

At Lakeshore Professional Voice Center, a highly trained voice pathologist begins by thoroughly evaluating your voice. This may include a computerized analysis of your voice and visual examination of your vocal folds through a small camera the doctor inserts into your mouth or nose.

Then, they work with you to carefully develop a personalized therapy plan to address your specific voice needs.

Voice therapy sessions generally last about 30 minutes and take place weekly for about six to eight weeks. During your sessions, the voice pathologist guides you through exercises specially designed to target voice rehabilitation. You’re welcome to record these sessions for home practice.
