The Voice Clinic

 

Vocal Health for Performers, Singers, Teachers

and others whose voice is central to their professional life.

 

Voice problems are very individual and require to be understood in the unique context in which they arise. For this reason, you can expect your first consultation to take around one hour.

The medical history will cover information relating directly to your voice and corollary information on your background health and lifestyle. Examination of the vocal tract will include laryngoscopy if it is indicated by the symptoms and medical history.

Functional tests will include computerised spectography and respiratory function tests if they are indicated.

In a few select patients, investigative screening for the following conditions may  required:

 

 

1. sensitivity to inhaled allergens

2. respiratory infection,

3. respiratory dysbiosis,

4. oesophago-laryngeal reflux,

5. chronic catarrhal states,

6. inflammatory conditions

7. autoimmune conditions

8. neurological and functional disturbances.

 

A close assessment of vocal function and technique will be carried out. Voice recording and video may be used, if indicated, and on the basis of informed patient consent.

A wide array of treatment modalities may be indicated, or aspects of voice training and speech therapy may be introduced, with information on vocal hygeine.

 

The medical assessment will also be sensitive to any psychological issues that have a bearing on your vocal health, including emotional stresses, performance anxiety, and/or various habituated communication problems.

Treatments will be selected for their appropriateness to the unique network of problems that are being expressed in your voice.
