Osborne Head and Neck Institute Case Presentation:
The patient is a 32 year old singer who presented with significant worsening of her voice over a 3 month period. She is in meetings most of the day and this involves significant voice use, including occasional loud voice use. She then is in rehearsals or in the studio in the evenings. She now is having discomfort associated with voice use and difficulty projecting her voice without significant effort. Her vocal range is also decreased, but she is able to push to access her full voice. She is a non-smoker and rarely drinks alcohol. She is not on any prescription or non-prescription medications or supplements.
