Audiology Associates & Hearing Aids Today Announce Tinnitus Treatments in Nashville TN

Posted: Updated:

There is no known cure for tinnitus, but there are tinnitus treatment options available that can help a great deal. Audiology Associates & Hearing Aids Today is now offering expanded tinnitus treatment options.

March 30, 2014 /MM-prReach/ —

Ringing in the ears is a hearing condition which impacts nearly 50 million US residents somewhere between 60 and 75 years of age. More prevalent in men as compared to women, the main manifestation of ringing in the ears is hearing tones which nobody else can hear. Tinnitus is generally not regarded as a disease in itself but a manifestation of something else happening in one or more of the four components of the auditory system – the outer ear, the middle ear, the inner ear, and the brain. Although not a type of hearing loss per se, it can be connected to other forms of either conductive or sensorineural hearing loss. Yet since tinnitus causes visitors to hear the buzzing or ringing sound continually, this tends to have the effect of lowering an individual’s absolute threshold of hearing, making it more difficult to hear low-level sounds normally.

Because tinnitus is such a prevalent problem in the United States, the audiologists at Audiology Associates & Hearing Aids Today are constantly researching new treatment options. Since many of these treatment options are rather new, long term tinnitus sufferers may not know that new therapies are available to them. Audiology Associates & Hearing Aids Today takes pride in being able to offer the most current tinnitus therapies in Nashville, TN. To better disseminate tinnitus therapy information they’ve compiled a list of tinnitus treatments on their website and often blog about fresh breakthroughs in the area of tinnitus research. Readers looking for additional information on the treatment options listed here are urged to visit the website at http://hearingaidstoday.com or contact Audiology Associates & Hearing Aids Today for an appointment.

Hearing aids. Individuals with tinnitus typically also have some amount of hearing loss. Hearing aids create a dual benefit of improving hearing and covering up the tinnitus. Partial or complete respite from tinnitus symptoms is possible with hearing aids.

Counseling and Relaxation. Learning how to relax is very helpful if the noise in your ears frustrates you. Stress tends to make ringing in the ears feel worse. People with tinnitus might experience depression, anxiety and other psychiatric problems for which counseling is appropriate.

Maskers. Tinnitus maskers are small electronics that look like hearing aids and are adjusted to generate sound that cover up the tinnitus. Many patients report good results with tinnitus maskers although they don’t improve hearing the way a hearing aid does.

Medication. Many tinnitus patients develop anxiety or other strong emotional reactions to their tinnitus. Selected drug treatments may provide relief from these emotional reactions and give some relief from the tinnitus.
