Gal Levy explains that spasmodic dysphonia is a mysterious voice disorder; the cause is yet unknown. Dysphonia is the medical term for disorders of the voice: an impairment in the ability to produce voice sounds using the vocal organs. The dysphonic voice can be hoarse or weak, or excessively breathy, harsh, or rough.

There are three different types of spasmodic dysphonia: adductor spasmodic dysphonia (closed glottis), abductor spasmodic dysphonia (open glottis) and mixed spasmodic dysphonia.

Gal Levy has more than 21 years of experience in clinical treatments of the voice, fluency, articulation and language. To continuing reading this fascinating article, please click the following link:
