4 Tips For Overcoming A Vocal Cord Injury
Like any other part of you body, vocal cords are susceptible to injury, and while time is ultimately the best healer, there are certain things you can do to aid in the process, and prevent permanent damage to your voice.
In this most recent article from MusicThinkTank, contributor Brooke Chaplan details four things singers can do in order to overcome an injury to their vocal cords.
“The most important step in your recovery is resting your vocal cords as much as possible. Whenever you use your voice, you could irritate the damaged soft tissue, and that is only going to prolong your recovery. For at least a few days, you must try to refrain from speaking entirely. During that time, you might want to keep a notebook and pen with you at all times so that you can communicate with your loved ones. This will be especially hard if singing is something you do daily, but try to resist the urge to push yourself.”
