Treatment for Muscle Tension Dysphonia - What you need to know:





Muscle tension dysphonia is a term used to define significant change in the sound of one’s voice - usually due to the muscle strain in the neck. Hoarseness or discomfort via excessive muscle tension in and around the voice box, can be indicating signs of the beginning stages of this nasty voice disorder - MTD. Needless to say, muscle tension dysphonia disorder inhibits the sufferer from using their natural voice. MTD can easily develop, for example; due to some infectious diseases like laryngitis and can also remain even after the swelling of the vocal cords subsided. It can also be caused by stress, therefore potentially causing co-occurring voice problems. However, this kind of dysphonia may occur on its own, identified as primary MTD - or it may occur as a result of other underlying disorders, known as secondary MTD.

What are the symptoms of this form of dysphonia?

Muscle tension dysphonia generally causes the voice to sound rough, hoarse, raspy, weak, breathy, airy, squeezed, tight or tense. Some of the other symptoms include:
  • A weak or airy voice

  • Sudden breaks or fading of the voice 

  • A neck that is tender or sore to the touch 

  • Loss of vocal range when singing 

  • Feeling the need to clear the throat often 

  • The feeling of a lump in the throat

How do we naturally and alternatively treat muscle tension dysphonia?

Using a unique voice/vocal instruction (Vocal Science™ method) geared towards voice restoration (combined with the application of natural herbs and remedies) - applied directly onto the vocal box - is the best natural and holistic approach of dealing with muscle tension dysphonia, as well as with many other various voice disorder issues.

This unique approach to voice mechanics is achieved by “lifting” the sound of the voice (so to speak) off of the vocal box (using specially designed speech and, if needed, singing exercises) and restructuring the sound into the facial muscles (sinus cavities); and then, concurrently, employing those facial muscles to work in full conjunction and coordination with the sufferer’s abdominal muscles. The latter require the aforementioned muscles for the lift and support of one’s sound.

Those actions described above, will naturally amplify the human voice; thus will allow the true voice to be heard without compromise. It will also minimize the harmful use of the sufferer’s throat, larynx and vocal cords, while, concurrently, will also be able to eliminate pain and, needless to say, strain during the use of the vocal anatomy altogether.
