For most of us, our voice is one thing we truly take for granted. Once we learn to speak, it’s almost like breathing – it happens so automatically that we don’t even think twice about it. At the same time, our voice is not guaranteed, especially if it is misused or abused.
Like any muscle or tissue in your body, the physical mechanism that creates our voice can become overstressed, damaged, shaped by hormones or attacked by viruses. As a result, you may notice a vocal change such as hoarseness or changes in pitches, tone or volume. Sometimes, the voice goes back to normal; often times, unless treated, it gets worse. Surgery is an option for the most severe cases, but we’ve also found many patients can avoid that more invasive step if they diligently commit to voice therapy first.
