Modern advancements in tinnitus therapy can provide much-needed and significant relief for those troubled with the condition.
Mount Pleasant, South Carolina (PRWEB) March 09, 2015
Advanced Hearing Care, an audiology practice located in Mount Pleasant South Carolina, is now offering the latest treatment options to those suffering with tinnitus.
Tinnitus is defined as the perception of sound where no outside source is found to exist. Those affected often define the sound as a chronic ringing, hissing, roaring, buzzing, or whooshing noise that is perceived either continuously or intermittently.
According to the American Tinnitus Association, tinnitus affects an estimated 50 million Americans, with an additional 30 million workers at risk for developing the condition together with noise-induced hearing loss. The relentless sound of tinnitus impairs cognitive function, attention, and overall quality of life for those affected.
The good news is, while not all instances of tinnitus can be cured or alleviated, modern advancements in tinnitus therapy can provide much-needed and significant relief for those troubled with the condition.
The hearing specialists at Advanced Hearing Care have developed competency in the latest tinnitus treatments and are now offering these services to those in South Carolina. Contrary to popular belief, several tinnitus therapy solutions exist that are generally very effective. A hearing specialist can work with individuals to find the optimum solution for each specific case.
Treatment options include:
- Treatment of an underlying medical condition, such as a blood vessel condition, can cure or mitigate tinnitus.
- Hearing aids can produce the dual benefits of strengthening hearing and masking the tinnitus. This therapy is especially effective in those with untreated hearing loss that is causing the tinnitus.
- Drug therapy, while unable to cure tinnitus, can give relief in certain instances with specific medications.
- Sound therapy produces white noise that can mask the tinnitus, making it less bothersome. Numerous devices can provide sound therapy, and a hearing specialist can help patients select the best one.
