Vocal Cord Dysfunction/Paradoxical Vocal Fold Motion

Vocal Cord Dysfunction/Paradoxical Vocal Fold Motion is a breathing condition that makes it difficult for someone to take a full breath in. This breathing condition can be triggered by exercise, strong scents, environmental triggers, and reflux.

Symptoms of this breathing condition may include a tight or constricted throat and sometimes chest, tense neck, noisy breathing, difficulty getting in the air, dizziness, rapid breathing rate, coughing, and more.

Nikki Emsellem Isaac, MA CCC-SLP has extensive experience treating children and adults with Vocal Cord Dysfunction/Paradoxical Vocal Fold Motion. She will educate you about this breathing condition, evaluate your breathing symptoms, and develop a tailored therapy program to help reduce and manage your breathing symptoms.

Vocal Cord Dysfunction/Paradoxical Vocal Fold Motion can be significantly improved with therapy.
