Is there anything to do for scar tissue in the throat?

hey. I'm a singer. A while ago i got rlly into 'screaming' and alternative vocals. I spent months 'screaming' in private, but I was doing so incorrectly and damage my lower ranges (My gut voice). Rather then using my diaphram, I would tighten up my throat creating a sort of growl (imagine 'the grudge' noises but much louder, or if u were trying to clear ur throat). The damage it did was pretty significant (now in my normal voice I talk much lower to the point that it gets difficult for others to hear me [gives me freakin self esteem issues man] and my voice tends to crack almost as if its ripping when i pronounce anything beginning with a "w" or "b") My pronounciations are just not as clear in general and it makes really hard to speak sometimes. Mainly there is now just a lack of control because where my voice felt tight and stern now it feels loose and weak as if its very "breathy". Looking back it was very stupid and I do regret it, but now I actually want to perform and sing regularly. My singing voice is still there, i just find it harder to project myself on lower notes, but I would really like to know if there is anything I can do about my regular voice? I am only sixteen years old, is there anything I could do daily to help it heal and repair or tighten up? thanks.

Re: Is there anything to do for scar tissue in the throat?

You may want to speak to a Ear Nose and Throat doctor that specializes in voice issues. The best are supposedly in Nashville, TN because country singers often run into voice problems. Depending on the severity of the damage, it may or may not be something you can fix on your own. By trying to talk to one of these doctors sooner than later, you may be able to recover better since you are still growing.

Good luck to you.
