Tinnitus Treatment


Tinnitus is defined as the perception of sound in one or both ears or in the head when no external sound is present. Often referred to as “ringing in the ears” tinnitus can also be perceived as hissing, roaring, whistling, chirping, or clicking. While tinnitus may be described as being a “phantom” noise, it is very much real for those suffering from it.

Tinnitus can be caused by many different things, sometimes identifiable and other times not. At this time there is no “cure” for tinnitus however there are various different methods for treating tinnitus which can be quite successful.
