Tinnitus is a hearing problem that affects approximately fifty million Americans somewhere between 60 and 75 years old. The key characteristic of tinnitus, which usually impacts a great deal more men than women, is hearing sounds which no one else can hear. Tinnitus is usually not considered a disease in itself but an indication of something else taking place in one or more of the four parts of the auditory system - the outer ear, the middle ear, the inner ear, and the brain. Although it is not a form of loss of hearing per se, it is often related to other types of either conductive or sensorineural hearing loss. Additionally, since tinnitus fills the ears with a frequent base level of ever-present sound, it lowers the absolute threshold of hearing and can make it increasingly difficult to listen for faint sounds "over" the constant buzzing or ringing.
Considering that tinnitus is such a prevalent problem in the United States and in Kennett Square PA in particular, the Board Certified Hearing Instrument Specialists at Hearing Aid Associates are constantly researching new treatment options. Due to the fact that many of these therapies are fairly new, long-time tinnitus sufferers are often unaware that new therapies are available to them. The ability to provide the most current tinnitus treatments is a source of pride for the hearing professionals at Hearing Aid Associates. In addition to maintaining a summary of presently available tinnitus treatments on their website, Kennett Square staff frequently write about new developments on the company blog. More information about the tinnitus therapies in the subsequent list is readily available on the Hearing Aid Associates website or by appointment.
Hearing aids. Tinnitus patients often also have some level of hearing loss. The combined benefit of hearing aids is that they cover the sounds of the tinnitus while also boosting hearing ability. Most patients with tinnitus receive partial or complete relief from their tinnitus with the use of hearing aids.
Medicine or drug therapy. Drug therapies and medications have two roles to play in tinnitus therapy. Selected medications offer direct reduction n the tinnitus symptoms while others are meant to target the anxiety and strong emotions affiliated with tinnitus.
Maskers. Hiding (or masking) the noises of tinnitus may be achieved through an electronic tinnitus masker. Many patients claim good results with tinnitus maskers even though they don't enhance hearing the way a hearing aid does.
Relaxation and Counseling. Learning how to relax is very important if the ringing in your ears aggravates you. Stress tends to make tinnitus seem even worse. Counseling can be appropriate when tinnitus leads to depression, anxiety or other psychological problems.
