Voice problems are sometimes seen in children, but are most often seen in the adult population. People who overuse/overextend their voice for long periods of time (e.g. teachers, singers) are at risk for voice problems. Symptoms include hoarseness, vocal fatigue, and pitch changes. If identified and treated early, physical growths such as vocal cord nodules and polyps may be avoided. Other causes of voice disorders include esophageal reflux, laryngeal cancer, vocal cord paralysis, and neurological disease (e.g. Parkinson's). Patients are often referred by ENT physicians. Speech-Language Pathologists emphasize vocal hygiene and healthy voicing techniques.
Unfortunately our mobile practice is no longer servicing adult voice clients, however you may contact us and we can assist in referring to a clinic in HRM that can assist.
