Approximately 50 million Americans between the ages of 60 and 75 are experiencing a hearing condition identified as tinnitus. More prevalent in men than women, the key manifestation of ringing ears is experiencing tones which no one else can hear. Tinnitus often suggests a condition developing in one of the four components of the auditory system - the outer ear, the middle ear, the inner ear, and the brain - and as a result could be more of a sign of other conditions than just a disease alone. Although it is not a type of hearing loss by itself, it can be associated with other forms of either conductive or sensorineural hearing loss. However , because tinnitus can cause individuals to hear the buzzing or ringing sound constantly, this tends to have the effect of lowering a person's absolute threshold of hearing, which makes it more challenging to hear low-level sounds normally.
Considering that tinnitus is such a widespread problem in the United States, the hearing professionals at Hearing Aid Associates - Lemoyne, PA are regularly looking into new treatment procedures. Due to the fact that many of these treatment options are fairly new, people who've lived with tinnitus for many years are often unaware that new therapies have been introduced. Being able to provide the most up-to-date tinnitus treatment options locally in Lemoyne, PA is a point of pride for the hearing professionals at Hearing Aid Associates. To better disseminate Tinnitus Therapy information they've produced a list of tinnitus therapies on their website and frequently blog about new developments in the area of tinnitus research.

Hearing aids. Tinnitus patients often also have some amount of hearing impairment. The dual benefit of hearing aids is that they cover the noises of the tinnitus while also boosting hearing ability. Many patients with tinnitus receive complete or partial relief from their tinnitus by using hearing aids.
Drug Therapies. A number of tinnitus sufferers develop anxiety or other strong emotional responses to their tinnitus. Certain medicines may offer relief from these emotional responses and offer some relief from the tinnitus.
Counseling and Relaxation. Stress makes ringing in the ears feel worse, so being able to relax is very helpful. Counseling may be appropriate when tinnitus leads to anxiety, depression or other psychiatric problems.
Maskers. Hiding (or masking) the noises of tinnitus may be achieved through an electronic tinnitus masker. Tinnitus maskers are an excellent option for many people, providing relief from the tinnitus. The downside is that they have been known to interfere with understanding of speech.
