Tinnitus Treatments

When considering treatments for tinnitus, it can often be difficult to separate fact from fiction. On the internet you will find a multitude of claims and counter-claims as to the effectiveness of one tinnitus treatment over another. This makes it difficult to know which options are worth considering and which aren’t.

As a general rule, tried-and-tested therapies will be supported by independent clinical analysis and research data to support the claims of the supplier or manufacturer. These treatments are referred to as ‘evidence-based’ therapies.

Two of the most widely recognised treatments for the management of tinnitus, amongst hearing and tinnitus professionals, are Sound Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

The purpose of Sound Therapy is to promote habituation to tinnitus perception by using a calibrated and targeted sound stimulus to actively influence the central tinnitus pitch, reducing tinnitus awareness over the longer term.
CBT can be used as a supporting therapy to address the psychological factors that often accompany tinnitus perception, with the objective of positively influencing negative emotions related to tinnitus perception. Although there is no cure for tinnitus, these management strategies can be extremely effective in helping to reduce the impact that tinnitus can have on those who suffer with it.

If your audiologist feels that you would benefit from tinnitus treatments based the results of your tinnitus assessment, they will recommend the most suitable treatment options.

It is important to note that we will only ever recommend the use of tinnitus treatment where there is a clear clinical benefit based on the results of the diagnostic tests conducted during your assessment appointment.

Took my 99 year old mum for ear wax removal. We had a fantastic experience with all the lovely staff who definitely know their stuff! She left with much better hearing and a massive smile. She got straight back into her talking books once she returned home. Thank you so much.
