Take the first step toward tinnitus relief.

Tinnitus is a symptom people describe as a noise in one or both ears. For some, it is a ringing in the ears, or a buzzing sound. For others, the noise of tinnitus is more like a hissing, or cricket sound.

One third of all adults experience tinnitus at some time in their lives. Approximately 10%–15% of adults suffer from prolonged tinnitus and seek medical evaluation. The exact cause of tinnitus is often not known.

Tinnitus treatment begins with thorough and accurate diagnosis.

Tinnitus is a symptom of a problem. The first thing you should do is seek out the underlying cause. You should have a medical examination with special attention given to conditions associated with tinnitus. You should also receive a full hearing evaluation by an audiologist to see if hearing loss may be causing your tinnitus.

Since tinnitus can be associated with a number of hearing-related conditions, a hearing test and complete evaluation by an audiologist can help provide information about the cause and possible tinnitus treatment options for you.

The most effective tinnitus treatment is to eliminate the underlying cause. Tinnitus, in some cases, can be a symptom of a treatable medical condition. Often, the cause cannot be identified and medical or surgical treatment is not an option. In these cases, the tinnitus (ringing in the ears), can still be managed using a variety of other methods. Be sure to discuss with your doctor any medical tinnitus treatment options before settling for tinnitus management methods for gaining tinnitus relief.

Tinnitus management can include biofeedback, hypnosis, electrical stimulation, relaxation therapy, counseling, habituation therapies, tinnitus maskers, and sound machines.

NWOHC audiologists often collaborate with ear, nose, and throat doctors (ENTs) in identifying the cause of tinnitus and providing treatment and management plans.

It’s good to keep in mind that successful tinnitus treatment is highly individualized and should be developed exclusively for you. It’s not wise to attempt to diagnose and treat tinnitus without the aid of an audiologist experienced in the latest tinnitus treatment methods.
