Can a Hearing Aid Stop Tinnitus?
Tinnitus comes in many forms, including ringing, buzzing, or clicking sounds. When tinnitus is present, there is often, but not always, an underlying hearing loss as well. A hearing test performed by a trained Audiologist is therefore recommended if there are concerns regarding tinnitus. While there is no scientifically proven tinnitus cure, there are several different tinnitus treatment options available that may help to improve your quality of life.
At Helix Hearing, our Audiologists at our Richmond, Narre Warren, and Bellerive clinics can discuss the best tinnitus management options that are appropriate for you. This may include hearing aids. Hearing aids can often assist in reducing tinnitus awareness by making sounds available that were previously unheard of because of hearing loss. These sounds are then focused on, redirecting attention away from the tinnitus. They can also reduce the strain of your daily listening load, relieving the stress and anxiety that can be caused by your communication difficulties. Our Audiologists will help to determine the best management option/s for your needs and lifestyle to help reduce the impact the tinnitus may be having on you.
