Strained vocal cords, normally resulting from vocal abuse, can be treated through voice therapy that teaches the patient the proper way to speak without straining the vocal cords, as noted by Drugs. In order to get short-term relief, patients are advised to rest their voice and avoid whispering or talking for at least 2 days.
If the therapy of rest does not resolve the problem, there are other treatment options available depending on the sort of disorder. If the patient has vocal cord nodules, surgery might be need for their removal. Similar is the case with vocal cord polyps, contact ulcers and vocal cord tumors.
