Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) May 22, 2014
Ringing in the ears (tinnitus) is a hearing ailment which impacts an estimated fifty million US residents between 60 and 75 years old. The primary manifestation of ringing in the ears, which usually strikes considerably more men than women, is hearing tones that no one else is able to hear. Tinnitus commonly indicates a condition taking place in one of the four portions of the auditory system - the outer ear, the middle ear, the inner ear, and the brain - and as such is more of a sign of other issues than a disease itself. Tinnitus more frequently appears as a co-symptom related to other types of either conductive or sensorineural loss of hearing, as opposed to being a form of hearing loss alone. Additionally, because tinnitus fills the ears with a ongoing base level of ever-present sound, it diminishes the absolute threshold of hearing and can make it challenging to hear weak sounds "over" the continual buzzing or ringing.
Considering that tinnitus is such a widespread issue in the U.S. and in Fort Worth, TX in particular, the audiologists at Carson Hearing Care are constantly researching new treatment options. Since many of these therapies are relatively new, long term tinnitus sufferers are often unaware that new treatments have been introduced. Carson Hearing Care takes pride in being able to offer the most current tinnitus treatment options in Fort Worth, TX. To better disseminate tinnitus therapy information they've compiled a list of tinnitus treatments on their website and regularly blog about fresh breakthroughs in the field of tinnitus research. More information about the tinnitus treatments in the subsequent list is available on the Carson Hearing Care website or by scheduling an appointment.
Hearing aids. Tinnitus patients typically also have some amount of hearing loss. Hearing aids provide a combined benefit of boosting hearing and covering up the tinnitus. Tinnitus patients using hearing aids often report complete or partial relief of tinnitus symptoms.
Maskers. Tinnitus maskers are small electronic devices that resemble hearing aids and are adjusted to generate sound that cover up the tinnitus. Like hearing aids, they offer tinnitus relief, but will not enhance hearing and can affect speech comprehension.
Counseling and Relaxation. Being able to relax is very important if the ringing in your ears aggravates you. Stress makes tinnitus feel worse. Counseling may be appropriate when tinnitus causes depression, anxiety or other psychiatric problems.
Drug Therapies. A number of tinnitus sufferers experience anxiety or other strong emotional reactions to their tinnitus. Selected drug treatments may provide relief from these emotional reactions and provide some relief from the ringing in the ears.
