What is Tinnitus?

Tinnitus is characterized by the perception of sound in the absence of external sounds. The world around you may be very quiet, but tinnitus causes you to hear a sound in your ears. These sounds are different for everyone, and they can be a ringing, buzzing, hissing, whooshing, clicking, or roaring sound. Tinnitus can vary in intensity and duration. For some, tinnitus may come and go, while for others tinnitus is a constant companion.

Symptoms of tinnitus can range from intermittent buzzing to constant ringing, and its effects often extend beyond the sounds you hear. Tinnitus can impact sleep, concentration, mood, and overall well-being.


Causes of Tinnitus

Tinnitus can have various underlying causes, and these can be different for everyone. Common tinnitus triggers include exposure to loud noises, age-related hearing loss, earwax blockages, or underlying health conditions.

Tinnitus is often associated with damage to the auditory system, whether through prolonged exposure to loud noises, age-related hearing loss, or damage to the outer or middle ear. Other contributing factors may include certain medications, ear infections, earwax buildup, or underlying health conditions such as cardiovascular issues. In some cases, tinnitus may be linked to jaw joint disorders or head and neck injuries.

Identifying the specific cause of tinnitus is a key step in developing targeted management strategies, and our experienced team at Sunshine Audiology will use thorough assessments to pinpoint possible contributing factors. This guides us in creating a tailored approach to tinnitus relief.

Available Treatment Options

We tailor tinnitus management to suit your unique needs. Our team conducts thorough assessments to pinpoint the specific factors contributing to tinnitus, allowing for targeted and personalized management.

Our comprehensive approach includes a variety of treatment options designed to alleviate symptoms and enhance your quality of life. From sound therapy and counseling to stress reduction techniques, we work collaboratively with you and other specialists to develop a personalized plan.


Sound Therapy

Sound therapy involves introducing external sounds so tinnitus can fade into the background, alleviating the perceived noise of tinnitus. Sound therapy can include white noise, nature sounds, or even music. Sound therapy calibrates these background sounds to match the pitch and volume of your tinnitus for advanced relief.

Hearing Aids

For individuals with both tinnitus and hearing loss, hearing aids can be a transformative solution. These devices amplify external sounds, address hearing loss, and reduce the prominence of tinnitus. Our expert team at Sunshine Audiology works closely with you to determine the most suitable hearing aid options, ensuring optimal comfort and effectiveness in managing both hearing loss and tinnitus.

Stress Reduction Techniques

Stress can exacerbate tinnitus, increasing its impact on daily life. Stress reduction techniques can help you manage stress and reduce the experience of tinnitus. This can include mindfulness practices, relaxation exercises, and stress management strategies.

Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT)

Tinnitus Retraining Therapy is a specialized approach that combines counseling and sound therapy to help individuals habituate to the sounds of tinnitus. Through consistent exposure to low-level background noise and counseling sessions, TRT can shift the brain's response to tinnitus, making the tinnitus less intrusive over time.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an effective tool for managing the distress and anxiety often associated with tinnitus. This therapeutic approach helps individuals develop coping strategies, change negative thought patterns, and build resilience in the face of tinnitus-related challenges. Integrating CBT into your overall tinnitus management plan can provide additional support for navigating the emotional aspects of tinnitus.
