Vocal Cord Dysfunction
(VCD)

VCD occurs when the vocal cords do not open correctly. After an evaluation from an Ear, Nose, Throat specialist, allergist or immunologist to rule out things such as asthma or GERD, treatment can begin to help reduce/eliminate symptoms of difficulty breathing, coughing, throat tightness, voice harshness or changes. VCD is characterized by more difficulty with breathing in (inhalation) than exhalation.
