Tinnitus Retraining Therapy
Tinnitus occurs when people hear ringing, buzzing, humming, roaring or whistling sounds that are not coming from objects or people within their surroundings. It is not a single disorder, but a group of symptoms with a variety of causes. Each person experiences tinnitus differently.
HOW COMMON IS TINNITUS?
More than 50 million Americans suffer from tinnitus. Nearly 10 to 15 percent of adults need medical attention for prolonged tinnitus. Most of the time, tinnitus may be temporary and minor, but more than two million American adults have severe and chronic symptoms. These symptoms can be the cause of a serious condition and should be evaluated by a medical doctor to determine the cause.
WHAT IMPACT DOES IT HAVE?
The sounds experienced from tinnitus can cause difficulty sleeping, concentrating, relaxing or socializing with friends and family. This can harm your work and/or social life and cause you to be sensitive to loud sounds. In some cases, this may cause depression and anxiety.
WHAT CAUSES TINNITUS?
Generally, tinnitus is a result of hearing loss. This could be due to:
- Exposure to loud noises
- Certain types of drugs and medication
- Middle ear infections
- Earwax build up
- Or other reasons
Very rarely, it may occur from a condition in which surgical or medical attention is required.
IS THERE HELP FOR THOSE WITH TINNITUS?
Previously, there was only help for the symptoms opposed to the cause. Now Hoglund Family Hearing offers Neuromonics Tinnitus Treatments to address the problem at one of the potential sources.
"When I first was bothered by my tinnitus, it was very annoying and I felt like I had no control over this "ringing" that just wouldn’t go away. Also, being 19 years old at the time when it first started, I really became stressed about how tinnitus was going to effect college, my job, athletics and other fun things I had planned to do in life. The first doctor I went to told me there was nothing that could be done and simply said find a way to cope; Well, that wasn’t very encouraging news. So googled tinnitus treatment and found Hoglund Family Hearing Center and their Neuromonics treatment. From the beginning of this treatment to the end, there has been so much improvement in decreasing the noise, which I can barley hear now, and also in my mood towards tinnitus. I feel I am in control now because I always know I have something to go to if I need it. I’m very grateful for the neuromonics device and treatment and the people at Hoglund Family Hearing. There is help for tinnitus and I know neuromonics works for me."
WHAT NEW ADVANCEMENTS HAVE LED TO TREATMENTS FOR TINNITUS?
There is now a greater understanding of how tinnitus is caused. Because there is a greater understanding of the neurological factors behind the symptoms, the Neuromonics Tinnitus Treatment was able to create a way for the brain to push out the sounds tinnitus causes, minimizing the impact.
WHAT MAKES NEUROMONICS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER TREATMENTS?
It is the only FDA-cleared treatment for commercial distribution. It has proven to provide long-term results after 15 years in the research and development phase. In the latest clinical trial, 90% of sufferers found that their tinnitus was greatly reduced.
HOW DOES NEUROMONICS TINNITUS TREATMENT WORK?
When you go through the non-invasive Neuromonics Tinnitus Treatment with Hoglund Family Hearing, you will have a clinician working with you over six months to assess the treatment, monitor your progress and provide you with the necessary support and education throughout your development.
IS THE TREATMENT EASY TO FIT IN WITH MY DAILY ACTIVITIES?
The device used for treatment can be used during most other activities, making is simple to use without disruption to your normal activities.
CAN I GO THROUGH NEUROMONICS TINNITUS TREATMENT IF I WEAR A HEARING AID?
Yes, our specialists can work with you to find the best times to use the Neuromonics device. Hearing aids may mask tinnitus but that does not offer a long-term solution.
CAN I JUST BUY THE DEVICE?
Since the Neuromonics device is a prescription medical device, it cannot be purchased alone. The full treatment is required to get the maximum benefit from the program as it needs to be customized to the individual patient’s problems with tinnitus, which cannot be done without a clinician’s help.
WHAT IF I AM NOT SATISFIED WITH MY RESULTS?
In the case that you are not finding relief with the Neuromonics Tinnitus Treatment, the Hoglund Family Hearing professionals will go through a step-by-step troubleshooting process to find and solve your problem. If this still doesn’t work for you, there is a return option available.
