What is Laryngeal Manual Therapy?

LMT is a mixture of hands on manual therapy including soft tissue release to the muscles that can directly and indirectly affect larynx mobility, along with passive stretching to facilitate improved local biomechanics of the neck and larynx. This is combined with individually appropriate advice and exercise following a comprehensive assessment.

This kind of treatment is effective in the treatment of:

  • Muscle tension dysphonia
