The familiar condition, tinnitus, known as a buzzing or ringing sound inside the ear, may affect as many as 10-15% of the general population. This issue can seem more acute when there are no other sounds present within your environment to compete with tinnitus sounds.

Our team at The Canadian Hearing Institute is dedicated to tinnitus management for all residents of Belle River, and helping them rise above tinnitus issues. Committed to providing both relief and counseling, we want to ensure that each of our patients can manage their tinnitus carefully and effectively.

How can you correct my Tinnitus?

Upon evaluation, our Belle River clients have observed improvement to their tinnitus condition, and more controllable symptoms. While mitigation of the condition is possible, there is no cure to fix tinnitus. A number of effective methods to screen out the noise caused by the tinnitus condition, such as tinnitus masking devices, or Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT) helps to achieve management of tinnitus symptoms.

Could Tinnitus have been prevented?

Choosing to wear hearing protection is one method for reducing the risk of developing tinnitus caused by exposure to loud noises. A safe noise level allows you to speak at a normal conversation level. When this is not possible, it is important to turn down the volume, move away from noise sources, or wear ear plugs. Loud noise can also cause hearing loss. A hearing aid may be helpful, if your tinnitus is combined with by some hearing loss.
