Incomplete Vocal Folds Closure is very common ENT doctors’ diagnosis of vocal difficulties.
What is Incomplete Vocal Folds Closure?
Your vocal folds contact and part from each other hundreds of times per second. Normally, they should close your glottis completely, but without pressure, in order to avoid harm. In case of incomplete closure, the folds either don’t close tightly or contact each other asymmetrically.
Incomplete vocal folds closure symptoms:
Causes of Incomplete vocal folds closure:
Incomplete vocal folds closure treatment:
The recommended treatment depends on the cause.
If the cause is vocal cords lesions such as nodules, the required treatment is using your vocal cords gently, minimizing your vocal intensity.
By contrast, if the cause is weakness of the vocal cords, the required treatment is intensified exercises aimed at strengthening your vocal cords muscles, in addition to sufficient vocal rest between vocal efforts.
Recommended exercises for better vocal cords closure (in case of weakness of the vocal cords without lesions)
Vocal support muscles strengthening exercises:
In these exercises, you should press your vocal cords forcefully, for a couple of seconds. For example:
Repeat the exercise 3 times, for 5 seconds at a time, 3 times a week. Increase the duration gradually.
Finally, there is the optimal means of prevention and recovery for nearly all vocal cords issues(with or without lesions):
exercising with TPV device.
During the exercise, the water in the device offers vocal resistance, thus strengthening your vocal cords and helps them regain complete closure. The water’s resistance also counterbalances the pressure on your vocal cords, thus preventing any pressure-related damage.
The combination of exercising with TPV device and using TMRG natural solutions results in an amazingly quick recovery of nearly all cases of incomplete vocal cords closure.
It can also gradually improve your condition in cases of vocal cords paralysis or nervous system related vocal issues.
