March 19, 2014 /MM-prReach/ —

About 50 million Americans between 60 and 75 are afflicted with a hearing condition identified as Tinnitus. More common in men as compared to women, the main manifestation of ringing ears is hearing sounds that no one else can hear. Tinnitus is generally not regarded as a disease in itself but a symptom of something else taking place in one if not more of the four elements of the auditory system – the outer ear, the middle ear, the inner ear, and the brain. Although it is not a type of loss of hearing by itself, it is often related to other forms of either conductive or sensorineural hearing loss. However, since tinnitus causes individuals to hear the buzzing or ringing sound continually, this can have the effect of lowering an individual’s absolute threshold of hearing, which makes it more difficult to hear low-level sounds normally.

The Licensed Hearing Aid Dispensers at Hearing Aid HealthCare in Palm Desert are regularly researching new tinnitus treatment options to make them available locally. Since many of these treatment options are relatively new, individuals who’ve lived with tinnitus for many years may not know that new therapies are available to them. The ability to provide the most current tinnitus therapies locally in Palm Desert is a point of pride for the Hearing Aid Dispensers at Hearing Aid HealthCare. Aside from maintaining a summary of presently available tinnitus therapies on their website, Hearing Aid HealthCare staff members often write about new breakthroughs on the company blog. More information about the tinnitus treatment options in the subsequent list is readily available on the Hearing Aid Health Care website or by appointment.

Hearing aids. Tinnitus sufferers routinely also have some level of hearing impairment. Hearing aids can provide the double benefit of enhancing hearing ability while also covering the sounds of tinnitus. Tinnitus sufferers using hearing aids often report partial or complete alleviation of tinnitus symptoms.

Maskers. Hiding (or masking) the noises of tinnitus may be achieved through an electronic tinnitus masker. Tinnitus maskers are an excellent choice for many people, offering relief from the tinnitus. However, they have been known to interfere with understanding of speech.

Medication. A number of tinnitus sufferers experience anxiety or other strong emotional responses to their tinnitus. Selected drug treatments may offer relief from these emotional responses and give some relief from the tinnitus.

Relaxation and Counseling. Stress tends to make tinnitus seem even worse, so being able to relax is very helpful. Counseling can be appropriate when tinnitus causes anxiety, depression or other psychological problems.

    Chrysler Recalls Jeep SUVs for Ignition Switches

    Chrysler is recalling up to 792,300 older Jeep SUVs worldwide because the ignition switches could cause engine stalling. Tuesday's recall covers 2005-2007 Grand Cherokees and 2006-2007 Commanders. Chrysler says it's not sure exactly how many will be recalled. The company says an outside force such as a driver's knee can knock switches out of the "run" position, shutting off the engine. This disables power-assisted steering and braking and the front air bags might not inflate. En...More >>
