Speech Therapy for Dysphonia
Phonotherapy aims to retrain the vocal mechanism to train and strengthen the muscles of the body involved in the phonation and coordination of breathing and phonation, and to achieve the vocal goals that are set with the patient at the start of treatment. Working closely with the referring physician in both the diagnostic and therapeutic process ensures the best conditions for the comprehensive and comprehensive management of each patient's voice problems..
Speech therapy services for patients after laryngectomy
Laryngectomy removes part or all of the larynx (partial or total laryngectomy). This surgery results in loss of voice and complete change of breathing as the trachea is stitched to the tracheostomy, leaving the mouth and nose free of contact with the lungs. Man without larynx feels isolated and cut off from his environment. Social rehabilitation is necessary and involves reintegrating it into society so that it does not feel alone.
Speech therapy is concerned with the preoperative and postoperative condition of the patient. Before surgery, the patient will be informed of what is going to happen, what are the ways of restoring the voice and the initial evaluation of the parameters related to the laryngeal removal. After the laryngectomy and the placement of the voice prosthesis (speech valve), the process of learning how to restore voice as well as solving day-to-day problems related to tracheostomy care and hygiene will begin.
