Voice Disorders

I was diagnosed with vocal nodules and my doctor recommended voice therapy.  Will that make my hoarse voice better?

It is incredibly difficult to live a busy life when your voice will not work for you!  There are a variety of voice disorders, including muscle tension dysphonia, vocal nodules, paradoxical vocal fold disorder, paralyzed vocal cord, and recovery from surgery of the larynx that benefit from voice therapy.  Teachers and other professionals who spend their entire day talking are especially prone to voice disorders.

The expert speech pathologists at Cornerstone Speech have been working with laryngologists locally and in New York City to restore vocal function in a natural, non-invasive way.  We can show teachers how to use the voice so that it does not become hoarse from speaking loudly all day! We use evidence-based programs such as Lessac-Madsen Resonant Voice Training (LMRVT) and Vocal Function Exercises, which can often help restore the voice to functioning with less strain and pain.
