Tinnitus Treatment and Counseling
Pronounced “ti-NIGHT-us” or “TINN-a-tus.” At Simon Audiology & Tinnitus, we say “TINN-a-tus,” but either pronunciation will do.
Tinnitus refers to any sound without an external stimulus. It is often described as ringing, buzzing, or chirping. It is a common problem for millions of Americans. If persistent and intolerable, tinnitus can impair concentration, mental acuity, sleep, and emotions.
Tinnitus can be a symptom of another physical problem, a side-effect of medication, or the result of other factors which influence the hearing system. While in many cases, tinnitus has no discernible cause, higher rates have been found in those with consistent exposure to loud noises at work or during recreation.
There are a number of avenues we can take to address your tinnitus. Since tinnitus comes from the hearing system, your best, first step is a comprehensive diagnostic performed by a Doctor of Audiology. With those results, we can chart the most effective course of treatment.
