Treatment Options for Vocal Tremors and Spasms

While tremors and spasms themselves cannot be cured, our ENT doctors can provide relief from your symptoms through personalized treatments. These may include speech therapy to help you better adapt to vocal spasms and injectables such as BOTOX to limit muscle activity and abnormal tremors. 

How Vocal Tremors and Spasms Work

Speaking occurs when air from the lungs vibrates the vocal cords, producing a sound. When the vocal muscles move involuntarily, it is called spasmodic dysphonia. This ailment can prevent the cords from vibrating sufficiently to make normal sounds.

Vocal tremors and spasms can create interruptions in the flow of speech, making it challenging to hold a conversation. The rate and frequency of vocal spasms will vary from person to person. If your vocal tremors are making it difficult to be understood, it may be time to consider medical intervention.
