Tinnitus Treatment

Do you find that your concentration is interrupted by a persistent buzz in your ears that seems to be coming from nowhere?

It can make it hard to concentrate and even harder to fall asleep and is more serious than you may suspect. This is tinnitus, a condition which affects nearly 50 million people in the United States alone. While sometimes tinnitus can leave as suddenly as it appears, 20 million people report symptoms so severe that it interrupts concentration and makes it hard to sleep. Meanwhile two million report tinnitus so bad it is described as debilitating. Unaddressed tinnitus can lead to sleep issues, problems with concentration, and chronic anxiety leading to hypertension and even heart attack or stroke.

Hearing aids

While not everyone with hearing loss has tinnitus, 90 percent of people with tinnitus have hearing loss.

We at Moore Hearing Centers believe that if tinnitus is making it hard for you to function there are many options for treatment.

While there is no way to completely end tinnitus symptoms permanently, we offer many avenues to explore in reducing symptoms so you can get the rest and concentration you need. Tinnitus is a condition which you perceive which can make it difficult to treat. If your tinnitus is caused by an underlying health condition it may make treatment easier. Examples of this include:

Noise suppression

While tinnitus rarely can be completely eradicated there are several techniques for reducing symptoms. This includes devices which mask the sound of tinnitus, allowing you to focus on other things. This includes:
Hearing aids
ITE Hearing aids

Counseling and Stress Reduction

When tinnitus won’t let you rest or concentrate it can be stressful and we have found that with higher levels of stress come more severe tinnitus symptoms. At Moore Hearing Centers we find that by addressing the source of the stress you can also reduce tinnitus.

Counseling options include Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) which addresses the source of the stress and helps you discover ways of adjusting your response to tinnitus when it comes on.

In addition, any form of stress reduction you can do in your daily life can help you to reduce the effect of tinnitus in your life. This includes meditation, acupuncture, yoga, regular exercise and making sure you get plenty of rest. Even amending your diet or limiting caffeine intake can make a significant difference.
