Modern advances in tinnitus therapy can provide much-needed and substantial relief for those afflicted with the condition.

Tinnitus is defined as the perception of sound where no external source is present. Those affected often describe the sound as a persistent 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 along with noise-induced hearing loss. The persistent 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 advances in tinnitus therapy can provide much-needed and substantial relief for those afflicted with the condition.

The hearing specialists at Silver State Hearing & Balance have developed expertise in the latest tinnitus treatments and are now offering these services to those in Nevada. Contrary to popular belief, several tinnitus therapy alternatives exist that are generally very effective. A hearing specialist can work with individuals to find the best option 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 enhancing 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 provide relief in certain instances with certain medications.
  • Sound therapy creates 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.
