Did you know that roughly 18 million Americans have reported a problem with their voice? A voice problem can take many forms. For instance, you may have a voice problem if you repeatedly clear your throat, you are experiencing a newfound difficulty to sing, or you have to put in an effort to speak. These may be signs of a throat condition which, if not taken care of properly, can affect your overall life. If you have a throat condition, our doctors are happy to help you overcome it.

To avoid a throat condition, you must take care of your vocal cords! Consider the following tips:

  • Avoid clearing your throat often, as this can injure your vocal cords.
  • Avoid straining your vocal muscles when singing.
  • Designate a quiet time where you don’t speak.
  • Drink enough water, as this keeps your vocal cords lubricated.
  • Eliminate yelling, as this strains your vocal cords.
  • Minimize how often you talk when you’re sick.
  • Quit smoking, as this increases your chance of throat cancer.
  • Use a humidifier to add moisture to the air.
  • When speaking to large crowds, use a microphone to eliminate the need to yell.

Our doctors are very passionate about helping people overcome their throat or voice issues. Depending on your condition, we have a wide variety of treatments available. They can discuss your treatment options and answer all your questions.
