Functional Voice Disorders

Functional voice disorders are those that come about after a physical or emotional crisis has caused a change in the way the vocal folds behave. Typically, a patient will learn to move their vocal folds in a new or unique fashion in order to compensate for whatever injury preceded the voice disorder. This maladaptive behavior then creates a voice problem all of its own. Once the underlying problem has been solved, most patients with functional voice disorders do extremely well and can expect a return to their normal voice.
