BETHLEHEM, PA (PRWEB) August 21, 2012
Like so many other Americans, Monck’s Corner, South Carolina, resident Jessicae Rawls suffers from tinnitus. But unlike so many other sufferers, Jessicae found relief.
Tinnitus – the condition described as ringing in the ears when no external sounds are present – affects nearly 50 million Americans, including many South Carolina residents. Chances are high that almost everyone knows someone suffering from tinnitus, and who are seeking effective treatment.
“I didn’t like who I was becoming.”
Jessicae’s onset of tinnitus began two years ago while she was pregnant with her son. She noticed that her ears would ring occasionally and often would be accompanied by headaches. One day, the ringing didn’t stop.
“It was like a million crickets chirping in my ear,” said the 32-year old mother of two. “It was hard to relax. I would take it out on my husband and kids because the slightest sound would make me crazy.”
Jessicae visited her general practitioner for a cure, but didn’t find relief. She tried over-the-counter ear drops, vitamins, antibiotics, and nasal rinses, but nothing stopped the ringing in her ears. Her doctor sent her to a neurologist and an ear, nose and throat specialist who performed two MRIs and a CT scan, but they could not determine any causes, conclusions or treatment recommendations.
Finally, Jessicae’s allergist recommended that she visit Beth Alberto, Au.D., an audiologist with the Hearing Care of Summerville. Relief was on the way.
“I cried when I finally got my Neuromonics Oasis Device!”
After Alberto analyzed Jessicae’s condition, she recommended the Oasis device and treatment from Neuromonics, Inc.
“When I met her, she was in tears,” said Dr. Alberto. “Her life was falling apart because of the tinnitus.”
Once Alberto fitted Jessicae with her Oasis device, she immediately felt relief. “After just a few minutes of use, the Oasis made me relax,” said Jessicae. “I could still hear the ringing, but after using it for a couple of months, the tinnitus subsided. Everyone I knew could tell it had a positive effect on me.”
“I’ve been treating patients successfully with the Oasis device for nearly five years,” said Alberto. “Jessicae has had one of the best success rates. On a scale of one to 100, where 100 is extreme tinnitus, Jessicae went from a 65 to 0 in just four months.”
The Oasis, which is the only FDA-cleared, patented and clinically proven medical device with documented long-term relief of tinnitus, looks like a small consumer music player. It works by desensitizing the patient’s tinnitus perception. The patient wears the device for a few hours per day (time depending on the individual), listening to soothing music that is customized to each person’s unique hearing and tinnitus profile. A recent independent study shows that more than 90 percent of patients who use the NTT experience a significant reduction in tinnitus.
“The Neuromonics Tinnitus Treatment has alleviated the persistent noise or ringing in the ears for many patients in a simple, non-invasive method,” says Duane Knight, chief operating officer of Neuromonics. “Because the Oasis targets the neurological root causes of the condition, it helps patients manage and treat their tinnitus, regaining control and a sense of calm over their lives.”
