CAN HEARING AIDS HELP WITH MY TINNITUS?

Tinnitus (ringing in the ears) is the perception of sound in a person’s ears or head that has no external source.  Many people describe tinnitus as ringing, buzzing, humming, or chirping in their heads.   Tinnitus is more common than many people realize.  It affects nearly 50 million Americans.  There are ways to help manage tinnitus and address the often accompanying hearing loss so it doesn’t slow you down.

Hearing aids can help significantly.  Not only do they improve hearing and communication, but they help reduce the prominence of tinnitus by amplifying background sound, this takes the focus off the tinnitus and can provide relief for many people.  Hearing aids can reduce the stress associated with intensive listening, which can help relieve the tinnitus symptoms. 

The very best thing someone with tinnitus can do is visit an audiologist.   Call us to make an appointment for a hearing examination and consultation on the most appropriate treatment options for your symptoms and lifestyle.
