Tinnitus Treatment
and Management

What is Tinnitus?

Tinnitus is a physical condition that can cause individuals to experience ringing, buzzing, or whistling sounds in their ears. For those facing the daily struggle with tinnitus, there is hope. Medical professionals have prescribed a range of treatments and therapies to help combat this difficult condition. From hearing aids designed to reduce sound sensitivity by amplifying external noises and cognitive behavioral therapy helping patients manage their emotional responses more effectively.

Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT) is also considered an effective treatment for those suffering from mild to moderate cases of tinnitus. Research has shown that long-term use can lead to reduced levels of emotional distress caused by tinnitus and improved quality of life overall. However, it requires dedication and commitment in order for the treatment to be successful, as it may take several months before any progress is seen.

Biofeedback Training and Neurofeedback Training are two evidence-based methods of treatment that have proven to be effective in helping those suffering from tinnitus. Biofeedback training focuses on providing real-time feedback on physiological responses, allowing individuals to gain control over their physical and emotional states, as well as become more aware of the body’s internal processes. Neurofeedback training utilizes brainwave activity to improve attention and alertness levels, while also teaching individuals how to better process sound. Both methods can help reduce the intensity of tinnitus symptoms and can teach sufferers coping strategies for dealing with their condition more effectively.
