If you are someone that suffers from Tinnitus, finding ways to ease its impact can be extremely beneficial. Rather than having to put up with the constant disruption, specialised tinnitus treatment in the UK will help to manage the condition and provide relief to sufferers. Choosing the right tinnitus retraining therapy to suit you will go a long way to provide a more peaceful result, relieving the stress associated with tinnitus.
People can, and do, manage the intrusive noises that can impact their hearing. With the help of specialised tinnitus treatment, this further enables sufferers to lead regular lives. Every patient is different and there is no single tinnitus therapy that fits all with the condition.
The best treatment for tinnitus will depend on how it impacts you personally. Assessing its severity, your hearing ability and general lifestyle, will enable a tinnitus clinic to determine the right treatment. At Harley Street Hearing, we can provide the expert help you need thanks to the care and attention from our team of audiologists.
Tinnitus Treatment Consultation
The first step is to have a thorough consultation, consisting of an audiological profile of your hearing, tinnitus history and a full audiological assessment, which not only looks at your hearing thresholds (the quietest sounds that you can hear), but if any decrease in hearing is identified. A number of hearing tests are performed. Your Hearing Therapist will explain the mechanisms of hearing and our current understanding of how tinnitus can be triggered.
You may already have an idea of what may have contributed to your development of tinnitus, such as regularly listening to overly loud music, however, there are other things to consider such as a build-up of wax or infection. We can help you with treatment such as ear wax removal or hearing technology to work alongside any tinnitus retraining therapy.
Tinnitus Clinic – Hyperacusis Assessment Package
This is a diagnostic examination of your tinnitus or hyperacusis, a condition where normal everyday sounds can seem very loud and even painful. The experience of having hyperacusis can differ between individuals, with some only finding a minor issue with it compared to others who have an acute sensitivity. The management of Hyperacusis usually involves the treatment of any medical conditions associated with the condition, counselling and often the use of sound therapy, custom-made ear protection may also help.
Tinnitus Therapy – Sound Enrichment Package
Used to reduce the contrast between tinnitus and silence, this may involve the use of a wearable noise generator (WNG) – a device similar to a hearing aid. It can also be helped by adding a repetitive non-invasive sound. Things like an electric fan, a ticking clock, a radio off-station, or a special freestanding, natural sound generator can help make a difference. It works by taking the brain’s focus away from the ringing experienced by reducing the contrast between the background sound and tinnitus.
Tinnitus Retraining Therapy Package
After you have had a Hearing Therapy consultation, we will have devised a tailored solution. There is no one size fits all approach, we can use a variety of different treatments to help including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Hearing Aids, Tinnitus Retraining Therapy and Mindfulness exercises that will form part of your tinnitus private treatment.
Tinnitus Clinic Solutions – Hearing Aids
If after your Hearing Therapy consultation we find that you have a hearing loss, we will advise on the best hearing aids for you made specifically with tinnitus therapy features. Many DJ’s and musicians wear these, for example, providing a bespoke solution. As an independent hearing and tinnitus clinic, we provide a choice of state-of-the-art hearing technology that will best suit your individual needs.
How to Ease Tinnitus – Ongoing Support
To help those looking for advice on how to ease tinnitus, The British Tinnitus Association (BTA) launched a specialised website called Take On Tinnitus, full of helpful tips for those looking for tinnitus help in the UK. It is a great resource for people who have just started to experience bothersome symptoms of the condition.
It is just one example of the leaps in progress tinnitus treatment has seen, ongoing worldwide research has provided many who suffer with it an impetus to look for tinnitus private treatment. The EU also previously gave a grant for a four-year study on Tinnitus, which you can find out more about the results on the Tinnet website.
