Ed Blake and his team at Physio Ed Medical Ltd offer specialist laryngeal manual therapy treatments to patients suffering voice related symptoms. Techniques have been pioneered and developed over a twenty year period with thousands of performers undergoing this non invasive treatment to address symptoms from muscle tension dysphonia, pre nodular oedema or true vocal fold nodules and globus pharyngis.
The larynx is suspended by muscles which in turn are affected by vocal workload and certain voice qualities, support patterns and postural influences, to name a few. All of these factors can result in a high level of muscle tension leading to restriction of vocal fold movement and symptoms such as a loss of range, breathy vocal tone, constriction whilst voicing and vocal fatigue.
The aim of laryngeal manual therapy treatment is to identify and treat any areas of restriction and address the reasons behind them. Treatment is specifically tailored to meet the individuals’ vocal demands and goals and usually involves soft tissue release of the tight laryngeal musculature and passive stretches to improve vocal fold mobility. We will also assess jaw symmetry, support patterns and neck and back posture. Real time ultrasound analysis of the abdominal muscles whilst you are singing is often used by the clinicians to ensure that optimal support patterns are being employed. Correcting any faults allows for safe and consistent sub glottic pressure levels leading to healthy long term singing.
Treatment not only benefits the singing population such as West End performers, classical singers, rock & pop singers, but all professional voice users such as teachers, barristers, sales reps and media presenters. Ed's work has been life & career changing for many performers.
Appointments will be at Maynooth Chiropractic Clinic in Maynooth Business Park, just off the M4 at Junction 7. Sessions are 30 minutes and the treatment fee is €150.
