Understanding Tinnitus 

Tinnitus, typically characterized by an unending sound in one or both ears, may be subjective (only audible to you) or, in rare cases, objective (audible to your doctor during examination). Whether you experience occasional bouts of these phantom noises or endure them around the clock, you're not alone. Over 50 million Americans grapple with tinnitus, according to the American Tinnitus Association.

Dealing with the Complexities of Tinnitus

Tinnitus often signifies an underlying inner-ear issue, although its triggers vary widely. Prolonged exposure to loud noise, certain medications, diet, head trauma, stress, eardrum blockage, jaw joint disorders, and hearing loss constitute some common causes. Pulsatile tinnitus, a rare variant linked with the rhythm of your heartbeat, could indicate blood vessel disorders.
While the search for a definitive cure is ongoing, our understanding of the brain and inner ear's role in tinnitus is deepening. Please consult with your Audiologist or a medical physician to uncover the potential causes of your tinnitus.

Life with Tinnitus: What Are Your Options?

Although there's no one-size-fits-all remedy for tinnitus, at Hearing Services, we're committed to mitigating its effects on your daily routine. With personalized diagnostic testing, possible changes to diet or medication, and relaxation methods, we aim to alleviate the persistent sound in your ears.

A wide array of treatment options are available, such as:

Distract your senses from the ringing sensation with an electronic masker, a device that fits in your ear like a hearing aid and generates low-level sounds.
Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT)
This innovative therapeutic method, combining sound therapy and counseling, modifies the brain's neural signals to diminish the tinnitus perception, fostering tranquility in your daily life.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
This counseling technique alters negative thought patterns, easing the emotional reaction to tinnitus and stress relief.
