Tinnitus, or “ringing in the ears” is the perception of a sound when no external sound is actually present. It is estimated that more than 30 million people in the U.S. experience some form of tinnitus, and of those approximately 80 percent also have hearing loss.
Having tinnitus doesn’t mean that one has hearing loss, just like having hearing loss doesn’t mean that one has tinnitus.
The goal with our tinnitus patients is to help better manage tinnitus by working with advanced hearing technologies to change the way your brain perceives that sound.
Tinnitus can affect every aspect of your life and can lead to social isolation and severe depression. It’s critical that you begin managing your tinnitus symptoms the minute you detect a problem.
When your quality of life is affected by not being able to concentrate, sleep, hear or focus, there are many things we can do to help manage it.
Management techniques are successful in reducing the impact of tinnitus up to 90 percent of the time. YES 90% OF THE TIME.
Finally, there is hope in reducing or eliminating the ringing in your ears and to help you get back to the quality of life you desire.
