What Causes a Voice Problem?

  • Upper respiratory infections particularly if you don’t rest your voice and continue to talk or sing when suffering from viral laryngitis
  • Inflammation caused by acid reflux
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Vocal misuse and over use
  • Excessive yelling and loud strained singing
  • Poor voice technique
  • Excessive throat clearing and coughing-the vocal folds get banged together causing surface irritation
