Tinnitus is characterized by the continuous ringing sensation in the ears and is a common ailment, affecting 1 in 5 people. Tinnitus isn’t a clinical condition, but it could be a symptom of any underlying critical conditions, such as hearing loss, ear injury and other similar auditory conditions.
Living with a constant ringing sound in the ears can be enervating (causing one to feel drained of energy or vitality). Using tinnitus sound therapy, patients can alleviate this condition to a great extent. This sound therapy could make tinnitus less severe by decreasing the contrast between the internal and external noises. People who suffer from tinnitus can experience the internal noise to be more pronounced in a quiet environment. Common factors that cause tinnitus to develop include continued exposure to loud noises, head or ear injuries, exposure to toxins like caffeine and alcohol, ear infections and stress. Tinnitus sound therapy helps people adapt to their condition in a way that the internal noise is filtered out by the brain, even if it persists.
Contrary to the popular belief that the sound therapy causes physiological changes in the brain cells, tinnitus therapy acts as a distraction, helping patients alter their focus and their response to internal sounds. This strengthens their ability to choose which sounds they need to pay attention to, and which they need to ignore. Tinnitus therapy combines a wide variety of approaches, such as Distraction, Masking, Habituation, Neuromodulation, etc. There are a range of sounds available in many hearing aids today that offer relief from tinnitus using tinnitus sound therapy.
