Tinnitus Tests & Treatment

It is estimated that around six million people in the UK experience persistent tinnitus. Tinnitus is the general term to describe the perception of sound where there is no presence of any corresponding external sound. It is often described as ‘ringing’ in the ears, however it may be perceived as a range of different noises including buzzing, hissing or humming. Tinnitus varies greatly from person to person, for some people it may be intermittent whilst others experience it continuously.

It is not a disease or illness, but a symptom generated by the auditory system associated with hearing loss, problems with the hearing pathway or Ménière’s disease. It can also be caused by persistent exposure to loud noises which can damage the cochlea (organ of hearing).

It ranges from very mild to severe, where the continuous barrage of sounds and sensations is nothing short of debilitating. In some cases, tinnitus can have a huge impact on your quality of life, possibly affecting your ability to concentrate or to fall asleep.

Treatment of Tinnitus

There are lots of types of treatments to help reduce the presence of tinnitus. Hearing aids are often the first thing that is recommended for tinnitus that is associated with hearing loss. More sounds being processed thanks to the hearing aid helps to mask unwanted sounds and help you to hear more of the environmental sounds around you.

Sound therapy is another form of treatment for tinnitus. Many modern hearing devices offer customisable and comforting sound stimulus that can be fine-tuned to your own personalised sound to help sooth your tinnitus and take your focus off it. There are lots of different types of sound therapy to choose from including nature sounds, music and white noise.

Coupled with the correct rehabilitation, a hearing aid from Integrate Hearing can usually dramatically reduce tinnitus or sometimes it can even remove the effects completely.

I would like to thank Olivia for her home visit to remove wax from my mother’s ears today. She was fantastically reassuring, professional, courteous and patient. Every step of the process was carefully explained and she was meticulous in her safety procedures. I would not hesitate to recommend Olivia to anyone needing any audiology services.

Olivia is absolutely brilliant. Can’t praise her too highly. Wasted 9 months at another clinic where none of my problems were ever solved. Olivia gave me back my hearing in under two. She is the Super Woman of hearing problems!

Visited Olivia today at Cheadle for ear wax removal. I was very impressed with her professionalism and friendliness which I feel would put even a nervous patient quickly at ease. The treatment was trouble free and pain free and reached a successful outcome with complete removal of the wax. I would not hesitate to recommend Olivia to any potential patients.

After having microsuction, I discussed the possibility of a hearing aid from Olivia after having problems with my NHS aid. At each appointment I found Olivia very thorough and professional. She was careful to ensure that I had exactly the right fit and that I was happy with it. She was helpful, pleasant and made me feel relaxed. I am very happy with my new neat hearing aid. Thanks Olivia!
