Due to an increased muscle tension in the throat area, various throat complaints can arise.

A globus feeling (lump in the throat feeling) is common. Many people are concerned about this, but overall it is a harmless problem. Often no clear cause can be found and adequate referrals are not always made.

Possible signs or symptoms may include:
- a lump in the throat that cannot be swallowed,
- a feeling that there is a bone or grain in your throat,
- a burning, sore, tired or irritated throat.

With the help of manual facilitation (larynx massage) and relaxation exercises, the complaints become less and you learn what you can do yourself in the event of complaints.
