Functional Voice Disorders
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.
