Hearing Aids Repair and Services
Functional voice disorders encompass a range of conditions that affect the quality, pitch, and control of the voice. These disorders, including puberphonia, spasmodic dysphonia, hoarse voice, and others, can have a significant impact on a person's ability to communicate effectively. At Mythri Speech & Hearing Center, we specialize in the assessment and treatment of functional voice disorders, providing comprehensive care to help individuals regain vocal clarity and confidence.
Understanding Functional Voice Disorders
Functional voice disorders are characterized by voice changes or difficulties that arise from maladaptive vocal habits, muscle tension, or inappropriate use of the vocal mechanism. Conditions such as puberphonia (persistent high-pitched voice after puberty), spasmodic dysphonia (involuntary spasms of the vocal cords), and hoarse voice (abnormal vocal quality) fall under the category of functional voice disorders. These disorders can be highly disruptive to daily communication and may lead to vocal fatigue and strain.
