Tinnitus is the perception of noise of an external acoustic stimulus. It can occur as a single pure tone or multiple different tones. It can be high pitched, low pitched, ringing, buzzing, roaring, or clicking sounds in the ear. It is important to know that Tinnitus is caused by different diseases & conditions. So it must be thought of as a symptom and not a disease. It is also important to understand
that it is a heard symptom caused by either a local problem or a disease occurring anywhere along the hearing pathway which starts from the external ear going all the way up to the hearing centers in the brain. Some medicines can cause tinnitus, but frequently tinnitus is caused by hearing loss. Tinnitus should be evaluated by an Otolaryngologist (ENT Specialist) to determine if there are any medical conditions which need to be treated.
Zen and Neuromonics
The goal of this treatment is to desensitize the brain to the sounds of tinnitus and to reduce the patient’s annoyance with the sound. This approach uses a specialized acoustic stimulus aimed at targeting the effects of auditory deprivation and combining this with relaxing music. It is used to desensitize the brain to tinnitus by “reprogramming” neuronal responses.
Diagnostic Hearing Tests
Hearing is evaluated in patients of all ages, from newborn through geriatrics. The patient is seated in a soundproof room during testing to ensure accurate test results. Using a variety of clinical tools, which may consist of pure-tone testing, speech audiometry and impedance testing, the audiologist will determine a patient’s hearing acuity. Should a hearing loss be present, proper follow-up will be recommended by the audiologist.
