Tinniuts is very often associated with hearing loss; an estimated 90% of tinnitus sufferers experience some degree of hearing loss. However there are other causes of tinnitus including:

  • Loud sound trauma
  • Ear wax- occlusion
  • Circulatory and/or blood vessel problems
  • Injuries to the head or neck
  • Changes in the middle ear bones, a disease known as Otosclerosis
  • Balance mechanism changes, a disease knows as Meniere’s
  • Medications know to damage the inner ear (ototoxic drugs)
  • The Aging process
  • Acoustic Neuroma (a benign tumor of the 7th or 8th nerve usually affecting hearing & balance).

Tinnitus can be constant or intermittent and it can be experienced in one or both ears. Some people experience it while sleeping. For the majority of people, tinnitus is a subjective sound which means that only the person who has it can hear it. It can be loud or soft. Tinnitus originates inside the head and the onset may be gradual or sudden.

It is estimated that about 10% of the adult population in the U.S. (22.7 million Americans), experience tinnitus for more than 3 months. Some of the consequences of tinnitus include:

  • Problems sleeping
  • Physical exhaustion
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Anxiety and depression

In years past there were few or no successful treatment options for tinnitus sufferers. However, thanks to evolving brain and hearing research and scientific advances in hearing aid technologytoday we have viable tinnitus treatment and management options.

Hearing aids are helpful for many people who have tinnitus. The better you hear, the less you may notice your tinnitus. Using hearing aids, your brain has other sounds to listen to, making your tinnitus less noticeable.

At Evolve Hearing Center, we understand that tinnitus can have debilitating consequences on your life. We offer tinnitus treatment and management therapies for patients living in the greater Los Angeles-Beverly Hills and surrounding communities in Southern California.

Our tinnitus treatment therapies include Oticon’s Tinnitus SoundSuppot, Phonak’s Tinnitus Portforlio, and Widex’s Zen Therapy (WZT). These various systems use small hearing aid-like devices that emit barely audible sound tones, thus driving your focus away from the ringing sound and making it less noticeable to you.
