Tinnitus Relief at Victorian Hearing

Apr 21, 2021

Tinnitus is a condition that affects the auditory system, causing sufferers to hear a persistent sound when no external sound is present. Because of its subjective nature, the perceived sound can differ between people. While often characterised as an unpleasant ringing in the ears, tinnitus symptoms have also been described by those experiencing it as a hissing, buzzing, whistling and roaring.

Beyond the typical symptoms, tinnitus can also contribute to broader problems, such as loss of concentration, difficulty sleeping, sensations of fullness in the ears, stress, dizziness, and headaches.

There is currently no cure for tinnitus. However, it can be prevented with the use of adequate hearing protection.

Regular hearing checks can help diagnose the problem early, allowing those that suffer from tinnitus to avoid worsening the condition. Moreover, specialist Tinnitus testing is crucial for managing the effects of tinnitus on general health and wellbeing.

If you live in Melbourne and are experiencing possible tinnitus symptoms, you may wish to seek a hearing check or tinnitus test from an independent hearing clinic equipped to deal with tinnitus. Specialist tinnitus audiologists can help treat and manage the condition and assist to improve your quality of life. This is where Victorian Hearing can help. With eight clinics in Melbourne, Victorian Hearing has a hearing clinic near you.

Victorian Hearing’s specialist tinnitus audiologists can provide a comprehensive tinnitus treatment and management program designed to educate on all aspects of the condition. Audiologists can recommend a range of strategies for tinnitus relief, such as tinnitus retraining therapy, enabling you to manage the condition with ease.

Victorian Hearing has access to the latest hearing technology for tinnitus management, such as the Phonak Lyric invisible hearing aid. The Lyric hearing aid is proven to reduce tinnitus annoyance faster than daily wear hearing aids, provide greater relief from tinnitus than daily wear hearing aids, and improve sleep quality, due to its 24/7, extended wear feature. Its placement in the ear canal allows it to use your ear’s natural anatomy to reduce noise and help manage tinnitus symptoms.
