What is Tinnitus – and why should you care?

Tinnitus is increasingly understood as a breakdown in the nerves that transfer sound information in the brain. Frequently associated with hearing loss, the sounds of Tinnitus often elicit fear responses, which can lead to feelings of desperation and hopelessness. Depending on the severity of the Tinnitus response, withdrawal, isolation, and depression may follow over time. Chronic Tinnitus increases stress and tension, which can further amplify the intensity of the “ear noise,” leading to insomnia, mental/physical exhaustion, and panic.

Scientific studies are beginning to show a link between Tinnitus and cognitive loss, and future studies may strengthen this link. But even if a direct link between tinnitus and cognitive decline remains allusive, Tinnitus is still frequently associated with hearing loss, and the link between hearing loss and cognitive decline is strong. Bottom line? If you have tinnitus it is important to get a professional evaluation for hearing loss.

Our team of expert Doctors will assess the origin, scope, and intensity of your Tinnitus, and determine if is associated with hearing loss. Then they will present you with individualized therapy options to alleviate either or both conditions.
