Experiencing Unexplained Sounds in Your Ears? You Could Have Tinnitus.

If you find yourself hearing sounds in your ears without any external source, you might be dealing with tinnitus. Tinnitus is characterised by the perception of sound in the absence of an actual external sound.

The phantom noises can range from a low, persistent rumble to a high-pitched squeal and may affect one or both ears. In severe cases, the loudness of these sounds can disrupt concentration and sleep.

Understanding Tinnitus: Causes and Prevalence

Tinnitus is a prevalent condition that can affect individuals of all ages, including children. Approximately 30% of people will experience tinnitus at some point in their lives, often as a temporary issue. However, for some, tinnitus becomes a chronic and intrusive problem, impacting various aspects of life, including hearing, sleep quality, and concentration.

Common Causes of Tinnitus:

  • Hearing Loss: A significant contributor to tinnitus.
  • Loud Noise Exposure: Prolonged exposure to loud environments.
  • Ear Wax Build-Up: Accumulation of earwax causing auditory disturbances.

Debunking Tinnitus Myths: There Is Help!

Contrary to the belief that nothing can be done for chronic tinnitus (a statement received by 90% of affected individuals), there are effective therapies to manage and habituate this condition. While there is no cure for tinnitus, various therapeutic approaches can significantly reduce its impact on your daily life.

Tailored Tinnitus Treatment Pathways at Total Hearing

The treatment pathways offered by Total Hearing are meticulously tailored to your individual needs, encompassing the following comprehensive options:

1. Desensitisation Treatment

Total Hearing pioneers a bespoke tinnitus therapy derived from cutting-edge research and our vast experience in treating individuals with tinnitus. This personalised treatment utilises sophisticated combination devices, precisely programmed around your specific tinnitus. Wearing these devices for dedicated hours gradually desensitises the auditory system, fostering habituation over time. Habituation enables the tinnitus sound to fade into the background, becoming a perception that you no longer notice.

2. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Widely accepted as an effective technique for tinnitus treatment, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy targets altering the patient’s negative perception of tinnitus. By removing the negative connotations surrounding the condition, CBT helps the brain habituate to the sound. This therapy often complements our Desensitisation Treatment, enhancing overall effectiveness.

3. Hearing Aids

With decades of proven efficacy, hearing aids play a pivotal role in tinnitus management. Often, underlying hearing loss is a contributor to tinnitus. Leveraging advancements in hearing aid technology, we can effectively correct hearing loss. By increasing ambient sounds, hearing aids can dull or mask tinnitus, providing greater control and aiding habituation.

4. Sound Therapy

Sound therapy involves using wearable and/or non-wearable devices to partially or completely cover tinnitus sounds. Coupled with counselling, sound therapy becomes a potent tool in managing tinnitus, especially for those experiencing difficulty sleeping.

5. Biofeedback

A relaxation technique addressing the body’s reaction to stress, Biofeedback is particularly effective in managing tinnitus associated with stress. Stress is a significant contributor to tinnitus, and biofeedback teaches individuals to control involuntary body functions such as pulse and muscle tension. Individuals employing these techniques often experience a reduction in tinnitus by adjusting their stress reactions.
