Castle Rock, CO (PRWEB) September 08, 2015
Tinnitus is defined as the perception of sound where no outside source is found to exist. Those affected often express 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 a projected 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 afflicted.
While not all instances of tinnitus can be cured or alleviated, modern-day advances in tinnitus therapy can provide much-needed and considerable relief for those afflicted with the condition.
The audiologists at Accent On Hearing, Inc. have experience in the latest tinnitus treatments and are now offering these services to those in the Castle Rock area and surrounding communities. In contrast to popular belief, several tinnitus therapy solutions exist that are generally very effective. An audiologist can work with individuals to determine the best option for each particular case.
Therapy 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 improving 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 supply 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 an audiologist can help patients select the best one.
