Tinnitus or ringing in the ears is a very common complaint and can indicate hearing loss as a result of exposure to noise or, unfortunately, the normal ageing process. Find out more about what tinnitus is.
There are many causes of tinnitus – it can be as simple as wax against the eardrum or as serious as a tumour on the hearing nerve so it is important to be diagnosed properly.
Tinnitus can be a mild annoyance or a serious and debilitating disease that can impact your health and well-being in many ways.
The good news is there is treatment available.
Clarity have developed three audiological tinnitus treatment programs. Each program is targeted at patients with different severities of tinnitus. From mild tinnitus through to debilitating tinnitus that has an impact on someone’s lifestyle.
For severe cases where there may be some benefit, Clarity also use the Neuromonics program to assist in the management of tinnitus.
The most common method of treatment is usually with hearing aids. By resolving the hearing loss it allows access to the softer environmental sounds that the sufferer is missing out on which in turn masks the tinnitus. Find out more…
Another method is with masking devices, where the pitch of the tinnitus is determined and a hearing aid device creates noise at the same pitch in an attempt to cancel out the tinnitus. Find out more…
A relatively new treatment option called Neuromonics uses specially formulated music which has been found to be very effective for severe tinnitus which is neurological in nature.
Our Neuromonics program consists of purchasing your treatment device and then pays as you go per consultation for the associated treatment. Find out more…
