A condition which affects as much as 10-15% of the population, is tinnitus. This issue is often described as a buzzing or ringing sound inside the ear. Tinnitus can seem more obvious when your environment is so quiet that it offers no other sounds to distract from the buzzing sounds.

At the Canadian Hearing Institute, our team is fully committed to assisting residents of Leamington get beyond the nuisance of tinnitus effects. We are dedicated to the management and control of tinnitus symptoms, by providing both relief and counseling to each of our patients.

Is there a permanent fix for Tinnitus?

While there is no permanent fix for tinnitus at the present time, there are a number of methods to ensure that tinnitus can be effectively managed. Our Leamington patients have reported that their tinnitus condition, once evaluated, had improved and become much more controllable with the help of tinnitus masking devices, or Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT), which helps to screen out the tinnitus noises.

How can Tinnitus be prevented?

The best way to avoid the risk of developing tinnitus is to avoid exposure to loud noises, or to wear hearing protection. When you cannot speak at a normal conversational level, the noise level is unsafe. You could move away from the noise source, or wear ear plugs, or turn down the volume. A hearing aid may provide some improvement for your hearing, if you have experienced hearing loss along with your tinnitus.

How can I deal with Tinnitus?

You don’t need to manage tinnitus alone. You can book a free no-obligation hearing test with us and we can establish the degree of your tinnitus condition. From there, we can determine an appropriate hearing device or suitable tinnitus aid to soften the symptoms that you experience. Clients living in the Leamington area who are in need of tinnitus management, can contact one of our nearby clinics to book your free tinnitus examination now.
