The first part of effective tinnitus management is to take advice from your GP or Hearing Practitioner. At the Alresford Hearing Studio we have a fully qualified Audiologist that is experienced in all aspects of the management of Tinnitus.
After making a free appointment with our friendly team the consultation may show that the problem is a simple build-up of wax in the ear which can be easily remedied through use of our state of the art microsuction equipment.
Our experienced Audiologist will also ensure that there is no evidence of infection nor any underlying ear condition that needs additional treatment first.
You may find that some clinicians will tell you“there is nothing you can do about tinnitus, just get used to it”. This statement is wrong. There are various therapies and treatments that can help you manage your tinnitus and reduce its impact on your life which our Audiologist will be delighted to discuss with you.
In addition to any wax removal or hearing aid solution provided by our qualified & experienced audiologist there are additional strategies that could be deployed for you.
Sometimes worrying about tinnitus can make it more noticeable, so learning how to relax can help provide some relief. Relaxation exercises and deploying other strategies such as slowing down the rate of breathing and relaxing your muscles are examples that may help.
An increase in the level of ambient noise can dilute the focus on your tinnitus. Some people find playing background music or television noise can be beneficial.
It is critical that hearing is protected when in a particularly noisy environment. However, due caution should be taken to maintain a balance and not wear ear protection or ear plugs when not fully necessary.
Maintaining a healthy mind and body is essential for your general wellbeing. If you find certain foods drinks or specific activities are prone to aggravating your Tinnitus, then it is logical to consider reducing your exposure to them.
At the Alresford Hearing Studio we are fully committed to working with you to find the optimum hearing solutions and therapies available that will provide long-term and consistent Tinnitus relief for you
