Tinnitus Treatment

Tinnitus is generally defined as being able to hear a sound that isn't being made by an external source. It can be caused by a number of different things and can take the form of buzzing, whirring, ringing, or whistling sounds. The symptoms can vary in severity and change over time, so seeking treatment is always advisable if tinnitus is impacting your life negatively.

What are the causes of Tinnitus?

Tinnitus is a common hearing problem and can affect people of all ages, from children to the elderly. For some, tinnitus may be a temporary condition, lasting a few days, weeks, or months. For others, it may be a lifelong condition.

How is Tinnitus treated?

For some people, tinnitus can be cured. If it's caused by a certain physiological issue then, as soon as it's resolved, the tinnitus will likely go with it. For others, however, direct treatment is not an option, in which case there are other treatment methods employed to make life more bearable.

Treatment options will vary depending on the causes and severity of your tinnitus, but often include:

Surgical tinnitus treatment to fix any physical damage to your ear that is causing the issue

Hearing aids that can amplify ambient sounds, and even play other sounds to mask the tinnitus.

Provision of CDs and music files containing relaxing sounds, such as nature, rainforest, or white/pink/brown noise.

Bedside sound generators to make a consistent noise to facilitate more comfortable sleeping.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy to help you better understand the way you approach and manage your symptoms.

Tinnitus Retraining Therapy for helping to dissociate tinnitus with stress, anxiety, and distress.
