Treatments for Tinnitus

No matter the degree or severity of your tinnitus, there are treatment options available to help you experience a better quality of life.  Our audiologists will go over the various treatment options available and will help you decide which one best meets your needs and lifestyle.  

Many of the treatment options available are FDA-approved.  See the listing below.

Hearing Devices

Since tinnitus often accompanies hearing loss, a hearing aid is recommended to amplify sound as well as to boost other soft sounds in your environment.  With this combination, the device will help to camouflage your tinnitus symptoms.

The Levo System by Otoharmonics

Levo is a tinnitus management system that is designed to be used when you sleep.  Our audiologist precisely matches the sound of the tinnitus. This sound is used to help the patient habituate to the tinnitus.

Widex “The Zen Program”

This program uses fractal tone technology where the sounds you hear are predictable but not repeating with the goal to rewire your brain and dull the effects of tinnitus.  Your audiologist chooses an assortment of “musical tones” known as “Zen styles,” which are random and chime-like. These tones can be adjusted (tone pitch, tempo, volume) to suit your comfort level.

ReSound LiNX 3D (iPhone App)

ReSound LiNX3D is an iPhone app that is effective in relieving tinnitus.  The app utilizes a combination of sound therapy and relaxation exercises to reduce the severity of symptoms, and it can be used in combination with hearing instruments.  The app also transforms your iPhone into a remote control for your hearing aid.

Counseling

Counseling is really beneficial for patients who have anxiety, depression, or any other psychiatric condition associated with tinnitus.  Combining psychiatric therapy with auditory therapy may be the best treatment to relieve your symptoms.

Relaxation

Many audiologists recommend that tinnitus patients incorporate relaxation activities into their daily schedule to help alleviate the stress, frustration, and anger they experience with this condition.  Relaxation activities, such as deep breathing exercises, yoga, and meditation, help patients to manage their tinnitus better, as they are concentrating on something other than their tinnitus. Other activities such as walking, biking, cooking, swimming, and gardening, also have calming, beneficial effects.
