Tinnitus Treatment Options
Are you experiencing a ringing, buzzing or whistling noise in your ears that no one else seems to notice? If your auditory system perceives noises that aren’t actually there, you may be suffering from tinnitus. While tinnitus may seem harmless, it’s almost always a symptom of another health issue – such as hearing loss. At ClearLife Hearing Care, we understand how detrimental tinnitus can be to your overall quality of life. From anxiety to social withdrawal, suffering from tinnitus can disrupt your physical and emotional well-being. That’s why our audiologists offer a variety of different treatment methods to help you find relief from your tinnitus.
After an initial evaluation, which generally includes a physical examination of the ears, in addition to hearing testing and questionnaires about your symptoms, our audiologists will determine if what you’re experiencing is tinnitus and what the best course of treatment will be. Tinnitus therapy may be prescribed for patients who want to be treated. Tinnitus retraining therapy is a long-term solution to turning the condition into a problem of the past. Professionals will work with you to help retrain your brain to learn to ignore or at least lessen the perception of your tinnitus.
The therapy also uses a special masking device with lifestyle changes to provide a powerful solution to tinnitus. Our audiologists will monitor improvements so they can make adjustments when necessary. Thanks to our extensive trusted network in the Dallas/Fort Worth healthcare community, we can also help you coordinate referrals with other qualified professionals for a full spectrum of care. The entire package is a lifestyle change that is designed to help reduce your tinnitus so you can enjoy their lives in a normal setting.
There are many ways to manage tinnitus, but one of the first steps is finding the underlying cause. An abundance of earwax, Meniere’s disease, vascular problems, tumors, infections and hearing loss can all be causes of tinnitus. Following an evaluation to your auditory system, your ClearLife audiologist will make the determination of how to proceed with treatment, with several tinnitus management options available, including:
- Tinnitus maskers (electronic hearing aid devices)
- Dietary and lifestyle changes
- Biofeedback (electrodes)
- Habituation therapy
The audiologists at ClearLife Hearing Care are familiar with tinnitus and understand the multiple ways to find relief from the problem.
