Help for Tinnitus
Tinnitus is an auditory condition where a person hears a persistent ringing in their ears that is not generated by an external source. The sounds of ringing, whistling, hissing or buzzing can be experienced in one ear or both. According to the American Tinnitus Association, more than 60 million Americans struggle with tinnitus.
Tinnitus is a symptom of another health condition, such as an injury to the head or neck, ear infections, earwax, exposure to a loud noise, or medications. However, tinnitus can also accompany hearing loss.
There is currently no cure for tinnitus, however, our audiologists at Worth Hearing Center specialize in giving you targeted, individual solutions to help you combat your tinnitus. Our tinnitus specialist has had extensive training in helping tinnitus patients “retrain” how they hear the ringing in their ears.
Think of it this way: in your home, if you’re near the kitchen and you focus on the refrigerator, you can hear it running. However, when you’re accustomed to the sound, you don’t hear it – that’s how we help tinnitus patients not hear the sound as much. After completing a hearing test, your audiologist may suggest a course of action or refer you to an otolaryngologist for further solutions.
Tinnitus Treatment Center
Worth Hearing Center provides several treatment options for tinnitus, including hearing evaluations, tinnitus retraining therapy (TRT), hyperacusis management, hearing aid evaluations and consultations, and tinnitus devices. Our audiologist, Dr. Callie Beauchamp, is a member of the Tinnitus Practitioners Association (TPA). She works to approach each tinnitus situation uniquely and professionally to best fit your needs.
When you visit us, we will start with an evaluation to determine the severity of your tinnitus by measuring your reaction to tinnitus, hearing sensitivity, and sound tolerance. These tests include objective and subjective measures to understand the full measure of your tinnitus. Our audiologists will consult with you on the results of your testing and provide recommendations based on the results. We will work with you to develop a treatment plan that will work for you.
