What are Voice Disorders?
  • People develop voice problems for a number of
    reasons. Doctors who specialize in ear, nose, and
    throat (ENT) disorders and speech pathology
    specialists are involved in diagnosing and
    treating voice disorders.
  • Treatment depends on what is causing your voice
    disorder but might include voice therapy,
    medication, injections, or surgery.

3
Causes of Voice Disorder
  • Your voice box (larynx) is made up of cartilage,
    muscle, and mucous membranes situated at the top
    of your windpipe (trachea) and the bottom of your
    tongue. Your vocal cords are two flexible bands
    of muscle tissue that lie at the entrance of the
    windpipe. Sound is generated when your vocal
    cords vibrate.
  • This vibration comes from the air moving through
    the larynx, bringing your vocal cords closer to
    each other. Your vocal cords also help close your
    voice box when you swallow, stoping you from
    inhaling food or fluid.
  • If your vocal cords become swollen, develop
    growths, or become paralyzed, they cannot work
    properly, and you might develop a voice disorder.

4
Risk factors Voice Disorder
  • Many risk factors could contribute to a voice
    disorder, including
  • Aging

    infections
  • Improper throat-clearing over a long time
  • Neurological disorders
