Specialists for Tinnitus Treatment Perth

Anyone suffering from the condition knows that tinnitus is more than just a random ringing in the ears – it’s a disruptive sensation that can affect your quality of life or be a sign of something far more pressing. Whether you suffered an injury, were exposed to loud noises, or your tinnitus seemingly started out of thin air, it’s important to get proper, timely treatment.

Tinnitus treatment depends on the cause of the tinnitus. The good news is that in some cases, the root cause can be easily addressed by an audiologist. In other instances, you may be referred to another provider for more robust treatment.

Almost all tinnitus can be effectively treated and improved. Even if you’ve been told in the past that nothing can be done to help, consider visiting our expert team at Hearing and Audiology. Our staff is well-versed in the latest treatments, many of which have emerged over the last 10 years.

One of our local hearing specialists will assess you using state of the art diagnostic tools. As we determine the cause of your tinnitus and craft a treatment plan especially for you, we keep customer comfort and satisfaction a top priority. Call us on (08) 9388 8003 to schedule an appointment at one of our many locations across Western Australia.

Is tinnitus treatment worthwhile?

There’s absolutely no reason for you to have to put up with the buzzing, ringing, or hissing sounds in your ears. With modern developments in tinnitus care, it is highly unlikely that you can’t be helped in some way.

Beyond general annoyance, tinnitus can also be a sign of something more detrimental to your health. Leaving it unchecked or undiagnosed could lead to worsening conditions over time or allow the root cause to spiral into something more problematic. Consider that some of the most common causes of tinnitus include:

  • Prolonged exposure to loud noises
  • Chronic ear infections 
  • Overall hearing loss
  • Ear canal blockages
  • Underlying cardiovascular issues 
  • Hormone or thyroid irregularities
Many of these can be treated, whether by an audiologist, otolaryngologist (ear, nose, throat doctor), or other medical specialist. Any opportunity to improve your health is a treatment worthwhile.

What tinnitus treatments are available?

Since the causes for tinnitus can vary, the treatments (and who can provide them) will vary, too. Some causes of tinnitus, such as wax blocking the eardrum, can be treated by an audiologist. If the cause is medical, such as a heart or circulation issue, you will be referred on to a GP for treatment.

In cases where the cause is more complex, tinnitus treatment can focus on managing or reducing symptoms to reduce or eliminate it’s disruption in your daily life. If general hearing loss is contributing to your tinnitus, an audiologist may recommend treating it in parallel to your tinnitus.

Treatments offered by the team at Hearing and Audiology throughout Western Australia include:

  • Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT): Helps the body adjust to its reactions and perceptions of tinnitus. TRT consists of two basic components: one-on-one counselling for auditory retraining and regular sound therapy using sound generators.
  • Neuromonics: Uses acoustic stimuli and music to relax the limbic system and retrain neural pathways. The process typically involves a sound generator with customized programming and counseling.
  • Sound Generators: Induces better sleep and tinnitus relief by producing sounds that counter and/or combat tinnitus. These are off-the-shelf devices designed by sleep and sound experts.
  • Lyric: Lyric sits deep within the ear canal worn 24/7 delivering high quality sound that reduces tinnitus perception. Various hearing aid products are available through consultation with an audiologist.
  • Ear level devices: Devices worn at ear level providing sound where hearing is affected with masking options.
  • Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation: New treatment designed to reduce neural pathways and reduce perception.

How long does it take to treat tinnitus?

There’s no set answer to this since every person’s body and responsiveness to treatment will be different. The cause of the tinnitus can also come into play. If you have an underlying heart condition, like high blood pressure, that’s contributing to tinnitus, then your treatment and recovery could take longer as both issues are addressed in tandem.

In general, the biggest changes to your tinnitus perception when undertaking tinnitus therapy occur in the first 1 to 6 weeks. When being treated with TRT, you can expect to experience results (and relief!) within 12 to 24 months. When recommended a sound generator or similar device, you’ll probably use it daily at set times, often before going to sleep. Treatment for broader hearing loss can also vary, but use of a hearing aid can drastically improve outcomes and are worn daily.

How to choose the right audiologist to treat your tinnitus

It can seem daunting to decide to tackle tinnitus, and many people don’t know where to start. Booking a consultation with a trained and accredited audiologist can kick off your care plan the right way. When you call to make an appointment, ask what is included in the initial meeting. You should be working with someone who can evaluate your hearing and offer a diagnosis with an action plan. 

You can also look up reviews for an audiology practice online to see what other customers have to say about their experience. Look for a clinic that has a shining reputation in customer service and satisfaction. Even when it comes to health, you are a customer and deserve the best. 

Also take a look at the provider’s website. Do they offer products or a variety of treatment modalities that show they are well-versed in hearing loss services and hearing aids? Do they mention working with other GP or medical providers to refer patients who need dual care? Feel free to also ask these questions when you call to make an appointment. This way, you can take advantage of a complete care plan and have peace of mind that your hearing is in good hands.
