Dysphonia in professional voice users is quite frequent and may span from occasional hoarseness and limited voice output up to permanent severe hoarseness. In many cases, the vocal (over)load cannot be compensated and relaxation time after voice use is too short. However, there might be deficits in functional, organic and psychodynamic aspects.
Professional voice disorders need early intervention for best long term therapeutic results. A comprehensive assessment in a multidisciplinary setting (physician, logopedist, singing coach, osteopath) is warranted. Our clinic offers this kind of comprehensive examination, and, if needed, a spectrum of therapeutic options.
