Ear Institute : Tinnitus Clinic

Tinnitus Treatments

Tinnitus patients and their families should understand that while there is no “cure” for tinnitus, there are many ways to manage tinnitus so that they may lead a life less disturbed by their tinnitus. Recommendations are based on each patient’s unique case history, evaluation results, and personal needs. It is important to remember that what “works” for one tinnitus patient is not necessarily true for the next tinnitus patient.

Some of the management options available at the Ear Institute include:

  • Personal lifestyle modification (diet, sleeping habits, stress, etc.)
  • Noise generators (white noise/ nature sounds)
  • Hearing aids with/without noise generator
  • Masking devices
  • Acupuncture
  • Neuromonics Tinnitus Device (FDA approved)
  • Tinnitus Coach (psychiatrist / psychologist trained in tinnitus cases)

It is not uncommon for a patient to require 2 or more of the above mentioned management options.
