“This peer-reviewed study shows without doubt, that in a clinical setting, Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation offers both progressive and sustainable therapeutic benefit to people affected by chronic tonal tinnitus.”

Tinnitus affects around 10% of the adult population in the UK and in its severe form can cause sleep loss, anxiety, depression and a significant reduction in their quality of life.

Now, a year-long study by independent research organisation CERES, shows that the innovative Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation treatment is effective in reducing tonal tinnitus symptoms such as severity and loudness and annoyance by nearly 40%.

Of the 200 patients treated in 23 ENT centres across Germany, 67% reported that their tinnitus had improved, and 50% said that their tinnitus no longer had a negative influence on their quality of life.

“Patients in this study had tinnitus for more than four years, and the majority had at least two other treatments before taking the Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation,” said Chief Audiologist Mark Williams at the Tinnitus Clinic Ltd. in Harley Street, which is acknowledged as UK’s leading private treatment centre for tinnitus

“This peer-reviewed study shows without doubt, that in a clinical setting, Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation offers both progressive and sustainable therapeutic benefit to people affected by chronic tonal tinnitus.”

Robert Stanley, a patient who has recently completed his Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation treatment at The Tinnitus Clinic said, “My life has been transformed since I was treated with Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation. The Tinnitus Clinic have been so patient with me explaining every step of the treatment and what to expect,” he continued “I am not aware of my tinnitus anymore and I can lead a normal life. It’s brilliant.”
