Some Singers have asked me, ”If I had a previous throat condition for example, LDP or Hypertonic Phonation, would it reoccur if I did muscle training of the throat?” .
I ensure you that LDP or Hypertonic Phonation would not reoccur if you have had those issues or similar issues in the past, and would now like to start training your throat and vocal muscles. In fact, it would benefit you to keep a better condition of your throat, because training would improve your muscle’s ability to make accurate movements and build/keep overall strength.”
You need power and strength, more than most necessarily need, if you try to let out your voice with the LDP or Hypertonic Phonation. Once a person has overcome such vocal conditions, keeping your throat muscles strong with a few exercises should be a weekly or even daily routine.
Keep in mind that having some flexibility of the muscles relating to vocalization is very important before doing any muscle training. Training stiff or severely weakened muscles has many risks and should only be done at at slow approach, gradually and gently.
The voice improves by having flexible muscles!
If you have enough muscles from doing suitable training after acquiring flexibility relating to vocalization, you can let out your voice easily as much as you want.
