Voice Therapy

If testing indicates that your voice problem warrants therapeutic intervention, then you are encouraged to enroll in a formal voice therapy program. Voice therapy draws from concepts of exercise physiology and can be compared to “physical therapy” for the larynx or voice box. Much like your knee or ankle, the larynx is made up of cartilages, ligaments, and muscles. To treat a knee or ankle injury, a physical therapist would oversee rest, rehabilitative exercise, and reintegration into your normal life. When your larynx is injured, a similar progression to recondition the voice is often appropriate. The exercises you learn in voice therapy are the rehabilitation portion of the healing process for a vocal injury or voice change.

Voice therapy at ProVoice Center is overseen by your voice pathologist, who will design an individualized program to strengthen and balance your vocal mechanism. Most patients require approximately 6 to 8 thirty-minute visits over the course of several months. During therapy sessions, you receive specialized instruction on how to perform appropriate voice exercises and how to care for your voice. You will practice your exercises at home and return to the clinic for monitoring of your progress.
