Vocal Cord Paralysis
Vocal cord paralysis is a condition that can affect your ability to speak or even breathe. It is caused by the disruption or abnormal nerve impulses to the voice box or the larynx. The abnormal nerve impulses lead to the paralysis of the laryngeal muscles. The vocal cords do not only produce sounds, but also protect the airway by preventing saliva, food and drink from entering your trachea. Vocal cord paralysis can be caused by a number of factors such as viral infections, some types of cancer, or nerve damage in surgery.
We have treated patients through surgery, but you may recover through voice therapy as well. Come to our offices and get proper diagnosis and treatment.
