Fact: There are therapies and treatments that can help people with tinnitus. If the underlying cause of your tinnitus is temporary, it can go away on its own. If the underlying cause is treatable, it will go away once that condition is cured.
Even if your tinnitus is permanent, there are ways to reduce the severity of your symptoms. The research into tinnitus treatments has helped create new and better methods. A hearing healthcare professional can offer solutions and treatments to help make your condition more manageable.
Some solutions that may be offered are hearing aids, which help strengthen real sounds for you to hear so the tinnitus noise you hear is less noticeable. Most hearing aids now connect with dedicated tinnitus relief apps, such as Widex Zen. You can download the Widex Zen app from the Apple Store or Google Play. These apps have specially designed features to further help you notice your symptoms less often and less severely.
You can also go through special forms of therapy that may help. The most common types are Tinnitus Retraining Therapy, Cognitive Therapy, Sound Therapy, and Bimodal Therapy. These and others all help train your brain in different ways to ignore or not notice the sounds as much.
In addition, physicians can diagnose and address the health issues that might be causing the tinnitus in the first place.
