Voice & Swallowing Disorders
Voice Therapy at Wake Forest Baptist in North Carolina
Wake Forest Baptist’s voice
therapy program helps singers, actors and other frequent voice users, like
teachers and lawyers, achieve and maintain a healthy voice. We work with
performers that are active in the arts and entertainment scene, helping restore
balance, breathing, resonance and endurance to their speaking and singing
voice. We also treat individuals who have difficulty speaking, whether from
vocal misuse, overuse, injury or other complications.
The goal is to help you regain as
close to your “normal” voice as possible, so you can improve ease of
communication and resume daily life activities. We are dedicated to helping you
build, strengthen and restore your voice. Voice therapy can resolve certain
types of vocal fold lesions, strengthen weak vocal folds and reduce
compensatory behaviors. It may be recommended after certain types of laryngeal
surgery to reduce the possibility of scarring or further injury. We also treat
individuals with chronic cough and paradoxical vocal fold movement (PVFM).
We offer the following therapies:
- Comprehensive acoustic and perceptual voice evaluations
therapy for the speaking voice
voice rehabilitation for vocational and professional voice users in our piano
modification - an elective therapy focused on reducing unwanted accents or
dialects when speaking English
