Tinnitus is a persistent ringing in your ears that never goes away. It can be caused by many things. The most common cause of tinnitus is damage and loss of the tiny sensory hair cells in the cochlea of the inner ear. This damage typically occurs because of the normal aging process and from prolonged exposure to excessively loud noise. It can also be the result of a serious head trauma or injury.* If you suffer from ringing in your ears, turn to inTouch Hearing for help. We do Tinnitus Therapy in our Barrie and Newmarket offices.
The good news is that there are several well-established therapies for patients struggling with severe, chronic tinnitus. Tinnitus can be managed with the implementation of Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT). TRT is the gold standard for tinnitus treatment and uses cognitive behavioral therapy which can include a masking device to help you learn to ignore the background ringing noise in your ears. No two patients and no two tinnitus cases are alike. As such, the best treatment option is often contingent on an array of factors unique to each patient.
Our audiologist has received specialized training in this area and will work with you to find the best solution for your case.
