Is There A Cure For Tinnitus?
Tinnitus is usually a symptom of an underlying condition causing it to occur which can complicate treatment options. As a result, a tinnitus cure is not very easily found. In severe cases, the treatment will be focused on reducing the impacts of tinnitus in daily living. If not addressed, tinnitus can potentially affect the overall health and quality of life in an individual. An audiologist and tinnitus specialist will have to investigate the patient’s lifestyle to determine the underlying cause of a patient’s tinnitus, and then decide on a suitable course of treatment.

Tinnitus can present in various types of sounds. A patient suffering from tinnitus will be asked to describe the type of noise they are experiencing, whether it is constant or periodic, steady or pulsating as well as the pitch and sound quality of the symptom. Tinnitus that presents in a continuous, steady and high pitched sound indicates a problem in the auditory system.
A hearing aid can help by amplifying external sounds above the Tinnitus level to mask the Tinnitus sound being heard. If there is some hearing loss present, the hearing aid can be customised to help with both issues. There are also devices known as Tinnitus maskers that mask the internal noise caused by Tinnitus by playing a sound that is more pleasant.
A Tinnitus Instrument is a hybrid device that combines the functions of a hearing aid and masking device all in one. A certified audiologist will be able to help with finding an appropriate device for your needs.
