Throat & voice
“The human voice is the organ of the soul”
– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The throat is part of the digestive system and also of the conducting zone of the respiratory system.The muscles of the throat constrict to force food toward the oesophagus when swallowing. The larynx, commonly called the voice box, is the organ that contains the vocal folds that allow your voice to be heard. Normal physiology protects the larynx and therefore the airway when swallowing. Problems in this area can lead to change in voice, discomfort and difficulty swallowing.
