Treatments for Tinnitus

There are several treatment options available to help you experience a better quality of life, no matter the degree or severity of your tinnitus. At ENT of Parker, your audiologist will go over the various treatment options available and will help you decide which one best meets your needs and lifestyle.

Many of the treatment options available are FDA-approved. See the listing below.

Hearing Devices

Since tinnitus often accompanies hearing loss, a hearing aid is recommended to amplify sound as well as to boost other soft sounds in your environment. With this combination, the device will help to camouflage your tinnitus symptoms.

The Levo System by Otoharmonics

Levo is a tinnitus management system that is designed to be used when you sleep. Your audiologist precisely matches the sound of the tinnitus, which helps the patient habituate to the tinnitus.

Widex “The Zen Program”

This program uses fractal tone technology where the sounds you hear are predictable but not repeating with the goal to rewire your brain and dull the effects of tinnitus. Your audiologist chooses an assortment of “musical tones” known as “Zen styles,” which are random and chime-like. These tones can be adjusted (tone pitch, tempo, volume) to suit your comfort level.

ReSound LiNX 3D (iPhone App)

ReSound LiNX3D is an iPhone app that is effective in relieving tinnitus. The app utilizes a combination of sound therapy and relaxation exercises to reduce the severity of symptoms, and it can be used in combination with hearing instruments. The app also transforms your iPhone into a remote control for your hearing aid.

Counseling

For patients who have anxiety, depression, or any other psychiatric condition associated with tinnitus, counseling can be really beneficial. In fact, combining psychiatric therapy with auditory therapy may be the best treatment to relieve your symptoms.

Relaxation

Incorporating relaxation activities into your daily schedule can help alleviate the stress, frustration, and anger you may be experiencing with tinnitus because they can help you concentrate on something other than your symptoms. Your audiologist may suggest that you try relaxation activities, such as deep breathing exercises, yoga, and meditation, to help you manage your tinnitus better. Other relaxation activities such as walking, biking, cooking, swimming, and gardening, also have calming, beneficial effects.
