How Central PA Hearing Aid Solutions can help with Tinnitus:
We have in-depth training in treating tinnitus patients. We first meet with you to better understand the history and characteristics of your tinnitus. We may perform a hearing test to provide information regarding how the tinnitus sounds to you. From there, there are several treatment options that could be recommended including Sound Therapy, Tinnitus Retraining Therapy, and/or Progressive Tinnitus Management.
With Tinnitus Sound Therapy, a tinnitus sound generating (TSG) device, similar to a hearing aid, is used to “cover up” the perceived tinnitus with background noise, so the brain pays less attention to the tinnitus and becomes habituated to it. If you also having hearing loss that needs to be treated, there are combination devices, such as Resound hearing aids, we could provide to you that are your hearing aid and Tinnitus Sound Generator simultaneously.
Will I always need to use the TSG?
Some people find immediate relief when using a TSG or combination device, but for others it can take 6-24 months or even longer for habituation to the tinnitus to occur. Learning to cope with your tinnitus is a process and should be delicately handled and treated over a period of time.Discuss your tinnitus concerns today
