What Can Be Done For Tinnitus?
A careful review of your health history along with audiometric testing will help us identify the right management option:
Medical Treatment: If our assessment indicates that medical issues other than hearing loss may be behind the tinnitus, we will refer you to a physician to complete the diagnosis and treat the underlying condition.
Alternative treatments: There is no evidence to support the effectiveness of alternative treatments such as acupuncture, homeopathy, or herbal remedies such as ginkgo biloba.
Hearing Aids: Hearing aids can enhance hearing and mask or cover up the tinnitus. For most clients with tinnitus, they can provide partial or complete relief.
Maskers: These small electronic devices, worn in the ear and similar to hearing aids, produce low level white noise that masks or covers up the tinnitus. Some can be individually programmed to mask the specific frequencies of the tinnitus you experience.
