If the testing indicates that the patientís voice problem warrants therapy, then the patient will typically enroll in a formal voice therapy program. This is similar to "physical therapy" for the voice.
Remember that the larynx is made up of cartilages, ligaments and muscles, just like your knee. If you were to injure your knee, then you would typically rest, REHABILITATE, and then re-integrate into your normal life. Voice therapy is the rehabilitation portion of the healing process. Voice therapy at BBIVAR involves seeing one of our five Ph.D.-level Voice Pathologists who will instruct you on an individualized voice therapy program designed to re-strengthen and re-balance your laryngeal mechanism.
Most patients require approximately 6 to 8 thirty-minute voice therapy sessions over the course of several months.
