March 24, 2014 /MM-prReach/ —

Ringing in the ears is a hearing problem which impacts approximately 50 million Americans between 60 and 75 years old. The primary manifestation of ringing in the ears, which affects a great deal more men than women, is hearing tones that nobody else can hear. Tinnitus is generally not considered a disease in itself but a symptom of something else taking place in one or even more of the four areas of the auditory system – the outer ear, the middle ear, the inner ear, and the brain.

Tinnitus more frequently appears as a co-symptom connected with other types of either conductive or sensorineural hearing loss, instead of being a kind of loss of hearing in itself. But because tinnitus causes visitors to hear the buzzing or ringing sound constantly, this can have the effect of lowering a person’s absolute threshold of hearing, which makes it much harder to hear low-level sounds normally.

Because tinnitus is such a prevalent issue in the United States, the audiologists at Silver State Hearing & Balance, Inc. are regularly researching new treatment options. Tinnitus cure research is a very active field with many scientific studies and trials launched each year. This means that people who’ve lived with tinnitus for an extended time are frequently unaware of the current solutions.

Being able to provide the most up-to-date tinnitus therapies locally in Reno is a point of pride for the audiologists at Silver State Hearing & Balance, Inc. As part of that effort they’ve produced a list of tinnitus therapies on their website and often blog about new developments in the field of tinnitus research. Details about the tinnitus treatment options in the following list is readily available on the Silver State Hearing & Balance, Inc. website or by scheduling an appointment.

Hearing aids. Most individuals with tinnitus have some degree of hearing impairment. The combined benefit of hearing aids is that they cover the noises of the tinnitus while also boosting hearing ability. Tinnitus sufferers making use of hearing aids often report complete or partial alleviation of tinnitus symptoms.

Maskers. Hiding (or masking) the sounds of tinnitus can be achieved through an electronic tinnitus masker. Many patients report good results with tinnitus maskers even though they don’t enhance hearing the way a hearing aid does.

Relaxation and Counseling. Relaxation techniques are essential for tinnitus patients because stress tends to make ringing in the ears seem even worse. Counseling may be appropriate when tinnitus leads to depression, anxiety or other psychiatric problems.

Drug Therapies. Medication-based therapies approach tinnitus on 2 different levels. They can address the strong emotions and anxiety that are prevalent among tinnitus patients and also directly reduce the symptoms.
