Voice disorders – so common, yet often left untreated…

Vocal overuse can be caused by many things, including infection and psychological trauma, and voice-laden professions such as teaching are particularly affected.

The overarching term for voice disorders or problems is ‘dysphonia’ and losing your voice can be devastating. It can have a huge effect on your quality of life, including economic, social and emotional tolls, but most people don’t seek treatment as it is a highly under-diagnosed and under-treated disorder.

If you have a voice disorder and need support, the Australian Dysphonia Network is worth connecting with.
