Tackling Tinnitus With Sound Therapy

Tinnitus is a major problem for some 10% of the population of the UK, according to the British Tinnitus Association.

At the Worcester Hearing Centre, Senior Hearing Aid Audiologist, Victoria Dixon, is pleased to announce they will be able to offer their clients the new Starkey Hearing Technologies: Tinnitus Multiflex hearing aid and Tinnitus management instruments.

Victoria said: “The new products will enable us to give a more effective treatment to clients that are troubled by the noise of their tinnitus”

According to the British Tinnitus Association there is a common belief that nothing can be done to help the tinnitus sufferer, but that is not true.
Victoria said: “A lot of people come to see me saying they have been told they have to learn to live with their tinnitus, which in itself can be very frustrating. Now there will be more positive help available to these people. Tinnitus masking instruments alone will never be the only answer for the tinnitus suffer, but with help, guidance, counselling, and the new technology in this field there is more help and relief available than ever”

Being able to use the latest Starkey Multiflex Tinnitus Technology, will create a customised and comforting sound stimulus that can be fine-tuned to sooth the unique, irritating sounds that are often heard by masking or covering over the tinnitus. This will often reduce the loudness of the tinnitus and take the sufferers mind off it so they can enjoy their life. There is a unique SoundPoint system that enables the client to actively take part in customising the instrument’s masking sound. The control offered makes it a very personalised system. Tinnitus is often a side effect of a person’s hearing deteriorating over time, thus hearing loss and tinnitus frequently need joint attention, and this new technology actually does that in a very effective way.

The Worcester Hearing Centre is holding two open days on March 25th & 26th where anyone suffering with tinnitus is invited to call in and discuss with the team their particular problem. Someone will be on hand all day to give help and advice. Victoria said: “Whilst the new technology will greatly help the lives of the tinnitus sufferers there will always be a certain amount of advice and counselling that is required for each individual client. We pride ourselves on being able to offer that type of advice and service for all our clients”
