Often described as a ringing or buzzing sound within the ear, tinnitus is an issue which affects about 10-15% of the population. When there are no other sounds present within your environment, the symptoms of tinnitus can often seem more noticeable.

The team at The Canadian Hearing Institute is committed to helping residents of the Ridgetown area with tinnitus management. By providing both relief and counseling, we can make certain that each of our patients have the best chance to handle their tinnitus symptoms in an effective way.

Is there a cure for my Tinnitus?

Our Ridgetown patients have reported that their tinnitus condition, once evaluated, had improved and become much more controllable. There is no cure for tinnitus at present, but there are a number of methods to ensure that tinnitus can be managed effectively. Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT) or tinnitus masking devices, help to screen out the noise experienced by tinnitus patients.

Can Tinnitus be prevented?

Tinnitus may be prevented if you wear hearing protection when exposed to loud noises. A safe noise level allows you to speak at a normal conversation level. If you are around noise that is too loud, you should turn it down, or wear ear plugs, or move away from the noise source. A hearing aid may be helpful if your tinnitus is accompanied by some hearing loss.

What can be done about Tinnitus?

It’s important that you schedule a free, no-obligation hearing test with us to establish the scope of your tinnitus. Afterward, we can determine how an appropriate hearing device or suitable tinnitus aid can help soften your symptoms.
