Neurological Disorders Can Affect the Voice

Some neurological disorders present with voice changes. 

These include:

  • ALS

  • Parkinson's Disease

  • MS


If you are experiencing these, come see us. We can help with the effects you are facing. 

Spasmodic Dysphonia

Spasmodic dysphonia is a condition in which involuntary muscle spasms cause the vocal cords to slam together or open unexpectedly.



  • Strained or "strangled" voice

  • Voice interrupted by spasms

  • "Breathy" vocals

  • Sudden loss of speech


Patients have often been misdiagnosed for other conditions, and their treatments haven't been working.


At the Colorado Voice Clinic, we have worked extensively with patients suffering from spasmodic dysphonia and can put together a fast, effective plan to treat the disorder. 

Treatment sometimes includes the use of Botox injections into the larynx muscles, greatly reducing the effect of spasmodic dysphonia in many cases.

Remember, stress can greatly increase the symptoms and frequency of spasmodic dysphonia. We can work with you to help manage this frustrating disorder before it threatens your career. ​
