What is Professional Voice Care?
The voice is one of the most important tools that people have. It allows us to communicate and express ourselves. For these reasons, many people want their voice to be the best that it can be. Whether patients want to sing, laugh, cheer or just talk, professional voice care can help patients get the most out of their voice.
Whether the voice is affected by aging, strain, hoarseness or developmental issues, professional voice care can improve the quality of the voice to help patients feel more confident.
How Are Voice Problems Diagnosed?
There are several components to diagnosing problems with the voice. First, we will evaluate the sound of the voice. This is done by recording the voice, which will be analyzed by our team of professionals. We may also perform a visual inspection of the vocal cords to diagnose anything that may be happening physically. We will also consider your health history as well as your occupation and lifestyle habits that may impact your voice quality.
We use a combination of all of these techniques to diagnose problems with the voice. These problems can be small or large, but we are proud to offer a range of voice care treatments to help patients overcome these problems and strengthen their voice.
How Are Voice Problems Treated?
Voice problems will be treated using a variety of techniques, and sometimes a combination of multiple techniques. The treatments we recommend will depend on your specific diagnosis. During your initial appointment, we will discuss all of your treatment options with you so that you have a deep understanding of your options. At this time, we will determine the treatment approach that will work best for you.
One of the most common treatments for voice problems is voice therapy. This involves spending one-on-one time with a dedicated speech-language pathologist, who specializes in helping patients correct small imperfections in the voice.
Another option for voice problems is injections into the vocal cords or nearby areas. Injections of various solutions can strengthen the vocal cords and improve the voice over time. While these may only be a short-term solution, they can also serve as a diagnostic tool to determine what kind of treatment will be most effective moving forward.
In extreme cases, surgery may be performed to correct voice problems. By manually manipulating the vocal cords and the surrounding areas of the throat, we can correct nearly any voice problems that cannot be addressed with other treatment methods.
What Results Can I Expect from Professional Voice Care?
Your professional voice care treatments may evolve and change throughout your treatment process. Throughout your treatment, we will monitor and assess how your voice responds to different treatments. This will allow us to continue to optimize your treatment so that you are getting the best results possible.
The results from treatment can vary significantly based on your condition and the types of treatment involved. Some patients may experience improvements in the voice within a few days, while others may experience improvements over the course of a few weeks or months.
