Tinnitus Sound Therapy Offers Relief to those Suffering from Ringing in the Ears While there is no cure for Tinnitus, a ringing or buzzing in the ears, relief can be found through several treatments. These treatments including hearing aids, counseling, medication, and even Tinnitus sound therapy. The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) cites three types of Tinnitus sound therapy treatments currently available to tinnitus sufferers: • Wearable sound generators are small electronic devices that are worn in the ear and are designed to mask the tinnitus by emitting a soft “shhhhhhh” sound, random tones or even music. • For those with mild Tinnitus who need help relaxing or going to sleep, tabletop sound generators can be programmed to play pleasant sounds like waves, waterfalls, or rain. • Acoustic neural stimulation is designed to help those with very loud or chronic Tinnitus. This treatment uses a small device and headphones to deliver a broadband acoustic signal embedded in music to stimulate a change in the brain’s neural circuits and to desensitize the patient to Tinnitus. Some treatments even allow patients to listen to their favorite music while the sound therapy program works in the background. All of these treatments represent good news for Tinnitus sufferers. Your hearing care professional will be able to recommend the right Tinnitus sound therapy for you. Website: Center For Hearing Blog: Hearing-Aids-Fort-Smith-AR 479-689-4307
