First, can tinnitus be treated? Yes. Many people come to us having been told, “There is no cure for tinnitus. You better learn to live with it.” That is an unfortunate and untrue stance.
What is Tinnitus? Tinnitus (pronounced both as tinn-I-tus or TIN-ih-tus) is noise or ringing in the ears. A common problem, tinnitus affects about 1 in 5 people. Tinnitus isn’t a condition itself — it’s a symptom of an underlying condition, such as age-related hearing loss, a medication side effect, ear injury, or a circulatory system disorder. Although bothersome, tinnitus usually isn’t a sign of something serious.
Our Audiologists follow a neurophysiological model of tinnitus to evaluate your individual symptoms and to treat your tinnitus. A deep dive into a patient’s health history can sometimes uncover an overlooked cause like a new medication side effect. Others find that they have an underlying hearing loss that they may not have been aware of. Treatments range from lifestyle changes, to tinnitus retraining therapy (TRT), to hearing aid use, maskers, and sometimes referral for cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Schedule your tinnitus evaluation today and start feeling better.
