The Basics of Tinnitus
According to the American Tinnitus Association, nearly 45 million Americans experience ringing in their ears, commonly known as tinnitus.
Tinnitus is an involuntary sound perception originating inside the head. It can come in many forms such as a ringing or chirping, “whooshing” or clicking sounds and can be occasional or constant.
In about 80-85% of cases, tinnitus is accompanied by hearing loss, but it can also be caused by exposure to loud sounds, accidents, ear infection, aging or stress.
It can be managed. Wearing hearing aids that are designed for people with tinnitus in combination with counseling and sound therapy can help you can get back to the life you love.
