Understanding Tinnitus: Management Tools, Support, and Our Upcoming Tinnitus Roadshow Event

As an audiology clinic, we understand the impact tinnitus can have on an individual's life. It can disrupt sleep, interfere with concentration, and cause stress and anxiety. Our goal is to help those experiencing tinnitus by raising awareness about treatment, management tools and providing support. We are really excited to extend this support during our upcoming Tinnitus Roadshow event on May 11th in Wilmslow, which will offer valuable insights and resources for managing tinnitus.

What Is Tinnitus?

Tinnitus is the perception of noise or ringing in the ears without an external sound source. It can manifest as ringing, buzzing, hissing, or humming, and may vary in intensity and duration. Tinnitus can be a symptom of underlying conditions such as hearing loss, ear infections, or exposure to loud noises. It can also be present with no underlying cause.

New Treatment  - Neuromod Lenire

Bimodal neuromodulation is the process of stimulating the hearing nerve and taste nerve simultaneously with algorithms developed during many years of research; stimulating neuroplasticity in the brain. This exciting development has been brought to the UK market by the Neuromod Lenire device and it remains the only device with research proven benefit for reducing tinnitus distress.

Management Tools and Strategies

There are also various management tools and strategies that can help individuals cope with the condition:

  • Sound Therapy: Using white noise machines, fans, or soft music can mask the tinnitus sounds and provide relief.

  • Hearing Aids: For those with hearing loss, hearing aids can improve hearing and reduce tinnitus perception.

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): CBT can help individuals manage the emotional and psychological impact of tinnitus.

  • Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT): This therapy combines sound therapy with counseling to help individuals habituate to the tinnitus sounds.

  • Lifestyle Changes: Reducing stress, avoiding loud noises, and practicing relaxation techniques can help manage tinnitus.

Support for Tinnitus Sufferers

Support is essential for individuals dealing with tinnitus. Our clinic offers a range of services to help those with tinnitus, including personalised consultations, counselling, and treatment plans. We also encourage individuals to seek support from family, friends, and support groups to share experiences and coping strategies.
