Vocal Cord Sports Breathing Dysfunction (VCD)
Vocal cord dysfunction is a condition in which athletes have difficulty breathing, with spasm-like behaviors that affect their performance. Typically, we see clients after asthma or other disease processes have been ruled out. Athletes who 'put-their-all into performing, at any level of skill, may develop this debilitating condition. Our referrals from athletic trainers, pulmonologists, or allergists are evaluated with respect to breathing; specific strategies for managing laryngeal spasms typical for this condition are taught to clients, resulting in an ability to anticipate, manage and reduce laryngeal spasms during athletic competition.
