Treatment is not a straight line, nor is it the same for everyone. Creating a team approach with your healthcare professionals is key.
Treating SD symptoms to help manage your vocal changes can include doing nothing.
To date, no known cure for spasmodic dysphonia exists. However, several forms of treatment are available to alleviate or control the symptoms of the vocal spasms on a temporary or long-lasting basis. Similar to other problems affecting the larynx, SD can be approached with a single type or a combination of treatments, as no single strategy will be appropriate for every case. Perseverance and patience are important when dealing with SD. Remember, doing nothing is also a choice.
