What is Voice related disorders?
Voice disorder is considered as a problem with pitch, volume, tone, and other qualities of your voice. These problems occur when your vocal muscles don’t vibrate normally.
Voice is the sound made by air moving from your lungs into your larynx, or voice box. Within larynx are your vocal cords, two bands of muscle that vibrate to make a sound. For everyone, voice plays a big part in who we are, what we do, and how do we communicate. Just like fingerprints, every person’s voice is unique.

What causes voice disorders?
To have a normal speech, your vocal cords need to connect smoothly inside your larynx. Anything that conflicts with vocal cord movement can cause a voice disorder. Early diagnosis of voice-related disorder can be cured with treatment.
Voice disorders can be induced by many factors:-
Growth– Growth of unwanted extra tissue may form on the vocal cords. It stops the cords to work normally. The growths can include cysts, papilloma, and nodules.
Inflammation and swelling- This includes surgery, respiratory illness or allergies, due to exposure to certain chemicals, smoking, alcohol abuse, and vocal abuse.
Nerve problems- Any medical condition can also affect the nerve that controls the vocal cord. These can include multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and Huntington disease.
Hormones- Disorders impairing thyroid hormone, the female hormone, and male hormones, and growth hormones can cause voice disorders.
Misuse of the voice- Putting too much stress while speaking, can cause problems in the throat, and affect the voice. Vocal abuse is something that strains or harms the vocal cords.
Signs that show your voice isn’t healthy:
- Hoarse or Raspy voice.
- Inability to hit some high notes while singing
- Your voice suddenly sounds deeper
- Feeling of raw throat, achy, or strained
- Taking too much effort to have a normal talk.
