The authors summarise a study carried out in the University Hospital of Liège which attempts to correlate vocal cord pathology, posture, and the concept of muscular chains. They have hoped to develop the concept that a postural disorder may be the origin of demonstrable asymmetrical vocal cord disorders. Could there be a bilateral causal relationship between postural disorder and a predominately vocal pathology ? How could more precise and long-lasting treatment be instituted ?
