Treatments – How to manage Tinnitus

Adequate Hearing protection
Tinnitus can be managed, your quality of life can get better but the very first step is to START LOOKING AFTER YOUR EARS. Ensuring your wear adequate hearing protection is the first step. All other treatments stem from and are supported by this principle.

Sound Therapy
Involves filling the silence with therapeutic sounds, which distract from focusing on tinnitus noise. Can be used when driving, during relaxation sessions and at bedtime.

Personalised sound therapy can help relieve tinnitus – take our tinnitus noise test

Our test allows you to establish at which frequency the ringing occurs, we can then compile an exactly matched form of tinnitus sound therapy that will help mask the noises.

Sound Masking

Wearable or bedside noise generators which mask the silence reducing the focus on tinnitus noise.  

Relaxation

Stress and anxiety can make Tinnitus symptoms much worse, creating a vicious cycle. Learning to relax can ensure you give yourself the best chance of managing your tinnitus. Try and remain positive – help is at hand. Relaxing will help alleviate the symptoms. Try our 2 minute breathing exercise, join a yoga or meditation class.

two-minute breathing exercise

Find 2 minutes – just 2 minutes, 3 times a day to practice this exercise.
Sit in a comfortable chair, preferably with a high back so that head and neck are supported. Or you can lie down if you prefer.

Now tell your muscles to relax, to let go and become soft. Mentally run through the body from head to foot. If you find any tension in the muscles, try to relax, and then continue to check the next area of the body. Pay particular attention to the head, neck and shoulders, as these are areas where many of us hold our tension and stress.

Spend no more than 2 minutes doing this exercise, then carry on with your day. If you don’t feel any great sense of relaxation, don’t worry. Relaxation is a skill that has to be practiced. Over time you will become more aware of your stress as it builds up in your body and be able to release it more easily.

The key is to practice regularly. For that reason you should spend no more than 2 minutes doing this exercise, then carry on with your day.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
CBT aims to help patients identify links between emotionally distressing feelings such as fear, anxiety, hopelessness and worry, associated thoughts, behaviours and their physical response to their tinnitus. By encouraging patients to adapt their responses and reduce the impact of distressing feelings, CBT aims to limit the attention they give to tinnitus rather than completely get rid of it.

Complementary therapies..
such as acupuncture, homeopathy, and herbal treatments such as Gingko Biloba have been shown to have very limited effect. Success stories tend to be anecdotal. However these can help manage tinnitus as part of seeking a balanced lifestyle.

Hearing Aids
If you have hearing loss this may help tinnitus by compensating for the loss of hearing, stopping your ears from straining, and allowing your ears to hear background noises. In simple it will stop you focusing on tinnitus symptoms.

Habituation therapy
Works by changing your sound response systems, so you gradually become less aware of the tinnitus. Tinnitus clinics can help you understand more.
