How Can Tinnitus Be Treated?
While tinnitus does not have a cure, there are many treatments that may be able to provide you relief. Some treatments may work well for some individuals but not for all, so you may need to try a few different treatments before you find the one that works best for you.
- Hearing aids
- Drug therapy
- Neuromonics tinnitus therapy
It is also important to avoid anything that can make your tinnitus worse. Stay away from smoking, alcohol and loud noises. If your occupation causes you to be regularly exposed to loud noises, then you can wear ear plugs or special earmuffs to protect your ears. If you’re having trouble hearing others speak to you, ask them to talk louder and face you directly. If you still have questions about your tinnitus, then call us today.
