Airway problems involve difficult or uncomfortable breathing or a feeling of not getting enough air.
Causes of Airway Problems
The common causes of airway problems that we treat include:
- Chronic cough
- Injury to the voice box
- Narrowing of the airway or windpipe
- Vocal cord dysfunction or paradoxical vocal cord motion
- Scarring of the vocal cords
- Unexplained episodes of respiratory distress
- Vocal cord paralysis
Treating Airway Problems
After a full review of your medical history and a physical evaluation, we will diagnose and develop a treatment plan for your airway condition. This may include behavioral intervention with our speech therapy team, as well as a combination of medical and surgical therapy.
