Voice therapy at Glendale Adventist is designed to help reduce problems and changes in the voice such as hoarseness, vocal weakness/fatigue, hyper and hypo nasality or loss of pitch range due to a variety of conditions.
To see if voice therapy might be right for you, answer the following questions:
- Do you lose your voice when speaking?
- Do people say you are speaking too softly and they can’t hear you?
- Is your voice often raspy or hoarse?
- Does your voice sound like you are speaking through your nose or have a cold?
- Is your voice too high or too low?
- Is your voice affecting your job or career?
If you answered “Yes” to any of the above questions, we can help!
Some of the conditions we can treat are:
- Age related voice changes
- Recurrent laryngitis due to allergies, tense muscles or excessive use of voice
- Vocal cord nodules and polyps
- Vocal cord paralysis
- Laryngeal cancer or other cancers that may affect voice
- Spastic Dysphonia
- Parkinson’s disease and other neurological disorders.
Our certified and licensed speech-language pathologists are specially trained and have the expertise to provide a comprehensive evaluation of voice production and develop a therapeutic program to improve vocal quality.
If you are having problems with your voice it is important to consult with an otolaryngologist (or ear, nose and throat specialist [ENT}). Your ENT will make the medical recommendation and referral for treatment. For a referral to a GAMC otolaryngologist or ENT, call (818) 409-8100.
All major insurances are accepted. To make an appointment with one of our speech-language pathologist or for more information, please call (818) 409-8071.
The Outpatient Speech Clinic is located on the main floor of the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitative Medicine building. Access our parking lot off Vallejo Drive.
