Treatments for Laryngeal Dystonia
There are currently no cures for laryngeal dystonia, although there are treatments available to improve symptoms and speech. Botulinum toxin, or Botox, can be injected directly into the muscles that control the larynx, providing temporary relief for 3 to 4 months.
Speech therapy may also be part of this treatment plan to reduce symptoms of laryngeal dystonia or spasmodic dysphonia. Furthermore, brain stimulation may also help in some cases to treat patients with a neurological disorder causing a voice condition.
A surgical procedure, in which one of the nerves of the vocal cords is cut, is another option, though more research is needed to understand how effective it really is.
Talk to a doctor at Florida Hospital to understand what treatment options would be most appropriate for your laryngeal dystonia.
