Spasmodic Dysphonia and TMS Success Stories

Success? For a Second Time?

Spasmodic Dysphonia referenced in TMS Books

Spasmodic dysphonia, formerly called spastic dysphonia, is a voice disorder that is caused by spasm of the vocal cords (laryngospasm). For many years it was thought to be psychological in origin but, as with so many other maladies, contemporary students of the problem think that most cases are neurogenic, that is, the result of a brain disorder...Based on the few patients I have seen who have suffered from SD, all of whom had back pain syndromes, my suspicion is that most cases of spasmodic dysphonia are psychogenic but are not identified as such because the person is not suffering any obvious psychological problem. The significant emotions are repressed in the unconscious.
