Vibrant Voice

It may come as a surprise to you the variety of conditions that can lead to voice problems.

Colds, allergies, bronchitis, acid reflux or cheering for your favorite sports team can result in a hoarse voice or even no voice at all. But there are also more serious voice conditions, which could warrant a trip to the doctor.  In fact, an estimated 7.5 million people have disorders of the voice.
