Tinnitus is a condition in which a person perceives sound that is not actually present in the environment. It is often described as “ringing in the ears” but can include virtually any type of sound including whooshing, hissing, or whistling.
Did You Know?
- 1 in 10 American adults suffer from tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
- Many tinnitus sufferers are not offered treatment but are told to “just live with it”
- Rarely is medicine or surgery an option.
- We now offer several sound therapy solutions that may bring you relief.
What is Sound Therapy?
Sound therapy has, through research, proven to be the most commonly effective treatment of tinnitus. In many cases, tinnitus is a result of the brain attempting to compensate for sounds it is being deprived of. Sound therapy gently replaces those sounds, reducing the the degree to which patients notice their tinnitus.
