Modern-day innovations in tinnitus therapy can provide much-needed and significant relief for those troubled with the condition.
Asheville, North Carolina (PRWEB) March 09, 2015
Asheville Audiology Services, an audiology practice located in Asheville North Carolina, is now offering the latest advancements in the treatment of tinnitus.
Tinnitus is defined as the perception of sound where no external source is found to exist. Those affected often refer to the sound as a continual ringing, hissing, roaring, buzzing, or whooshing noise that is perceived either continuously or intermittently.
As stated by the American Tinnitus Association, tinnitus affects an estimated 50 million Americans, with an additional 30 million workers at risk for developing the condition along 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 cases of tinnitus can be cured or alleviated, modern-day innovations in tinnitus therapy can provide much-needed and significant relief for those troubled with the condition.
The hearing specialists at Asheville Audiology Services have acquired expertise in the latest tinnitus treatments and are now offering these treatments to those in North Carolina. Contrary to popular belief, several tinnitus therapy alternatives exist that are generally very effective. A hearing specialist can work with individuals to choose the optimum option for each individual case.
Therapy options include:
- Treatment of an underlying medical condition, such as a blood vessel condition, can cure or mitigate tinnitus.
- Hearing aids can yield the dual benefits of strengthening hearing and masking the tinnitus. This therapy is particularly effective in those with untreated hearing loss that is causing the tinnitus.
- Drug therapy, while unable to cure tinnitus, can create relief in certain instances with specific medications.
- Sound therapy produces white noise that can mask the tinnitus, making it less bothersome. Several devices can provide sound therapy, and a hearing specialist can help patients select the right one.
