Tinnitus can often be attributed to some form of hearing loss. When you come in for your consultation, the first step will be to conduct a full hearing assessment. This will let us find out the level to which your hearing has been affected and enable us to start taking steps to treat it. We take this step first as it can often lead to your tinnitus symptoms easing up.
There are several other avenues of treatment that we can take to reduce the symptoms of tinnitus, beyond those associated with hearing loss. Unfortunately, there is currently no definitive tinnitus cure, but there are some ways in which we can provide relief.
Sound therapy is a treatment that can often help tinnitus sufferers. It works by having the patient listen to a selection of external, relaxing sounds. In this way, the internal tinnitus noises can be reduced. Alongside sound therapy, we often recommend a series of stress-reducing, relaxation exercises that can alleviate symptoms. Stress is a common cause of heightened tinnitus symptoms.
