Speech Pathologist

Voice Assessment

In a voice assessment, a speech language pathologist (SLP) takes a detailed medical history of your voice problems and conducts a series of acoustic measurements to evaluate your current vocal function.  If indicated, you may have pictures of your vocal folds taken using a special piece of medical equipment that can view them both at rest and in motion.

Voice Therapy

In voice therapy, an SLP guides you through a series of breathing and vocal exercises to help you achieve a healthier voice.  The SLP will also develop with you specific strategies you can use at work and/or home to help keep your voice healthy. 

Treatment is available for certain vocal lesions and/or laryngeal tension resulting in: hoarseness; breathiness; increased effort when speaking; vocal fatigue or pain; reduced pitch range; difficulty singing

Treatment is available for individuals wishing to feminize their voice

Spinal Stenosis Program

Includes

 

Degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis is caused by osteoarthritis---a wear and tear type of arthritis that causes narrowing (stenosis) of the spinal canals where the nerves travel through to the back and the legs. These nerves become compressed and can lead to pain, numbness and weakness of the back and legs and can impact the ability to stand and walk. Degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis is a leading cause of pain, disability and lost of independence in people over the age of 65. 

Symptoms include: back pain and pain numbness, tingling, weakness, heaviness of the legs when standing and walking.

The spinal stenosis program is a 6 week program consisting of manual treatment, education, specific exercises and instruction on self-management techniques to reduce compression to the spinal nerves when standing and walking.
