Aging Voice / Glottic Insufficiency

The muscles that control your voice are often affected by aging in the same way as other muscles in the body, resulting in lost volume and bulk, a process known as atrophy. The tissues that vibrate with speech also become thinner and stiffer over time, resulting in changes to the quality and strength of your voice that can cause you to sound “old.”
