Tinnitus Treatment for the Indianapolis, IN, Area
Tinnitus is defined by the American Tinnitus Association as “the perception of sound when no actual external noise is present.” It is commonly described as a ringing, buzzing, hissing, whistling, swooshing or clicking sound.
There is presently no known cure for tinnitus. However, there are very good, well-established tools and treatments that can significantly reduce the perceived burden of tinnitus. With perseverance and support from audiologists, these options can help tinnitus patients — even those with severe cases of the condition.
At Whisper Hearing Centers, we use a multi-faceted approach that is individualized to each patient. The use of sound therapy and counseling have proven to be the two most important components of any management protocol. If you have a hearing loss, environmental sounds alone may not conceal your tinnitus. Hearing aids can not only improve your ability to communicate, they may also provide relief from your tinnitus.
While hearing devices alone frequently provide tinnitus relief, Whisper Hearing Centers knows that each patient is unique. Because every case of tinnitus is different, Whisper Hearing Centers also offers neuromodulation therapy called DeSyncra for patients that do not find relief with tinnitus hearing devices. If you or a loved one suffer from tinnitus, contact Whisper Hearing Centers and schedule a consultation to discuss which treatment option is best for you.
