Vocal Nodules – Treatment Today

Vocal Nodules – Treatment Today

In most cases vocal nodules are treated successfully. Vocal nodules may resolve with rest alone in their acute stage, but if the trauma occurs repeatedly, then treatment will be required. Voice therapy is usually the treatment of first choice. Voice therapy involves vocal exercises that are designed to restore efficient vocal function so that the nodules resolve. These exercises are specifically targeted to deal with the problems identified for each individual during their assessment. If the nodules have become hard however, or if there are time constraints such as specific engagements or training, surgery may be the quickest and most effective solution. Voice therapy is required post operatively to rebalance the voice production and prevent recurrence.
