Singing with Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis & Singing

Many things can place hurdles in front of our vocal development. Some of these challenges, such as feeling discouraged or feeling complacent, can be overcome with a little bit of determination and grit. There are some hurdles however that can prove to be somewhat more challenging than most. Rheumatoid Arthritis is one of those physical conditions that can actually stand in the way of your singing. The good news for many sufferers is that it doesn’t need to signal the end of your singing journey.

Of course, this is little comfort to those who fall into the small group whose voice does suffer from the disease.
