If you are one of the millions of Americans who suffer from tinnitus, treatment and remedies are available to you in our Meridian and Caldwell locations. And while there is presently no cure for tinnitus, don’t let tinnitus take control of your life.

Patients get relief from tinnitus by treating the symptoms of the condition. The most common treatment for tinnitus is utilizing sound therapy with either hearing aids or tinnitus maskers that help the brain ignore the specific tinnitus frequency.
With perseverance and support from us or other trained audiology healthcare professionals, these options can help tinnitus patients — even those with severe cases of the condition.
What Is Tinnitus?
Tinnitus is the perception of sound when no actual external noise is present. While it is commonly referred to as “ringing in the ears,” tinnitus can manifest many different perceptions of sound, including buzzing, hissing, whistling, swooshing, and clicking. In some rare cases, tinnitus patients report hearing music. Tinnitus can be intermittent or constant, with single or multiple tones. The perceived volume can range from very soft to extremely loud and may be recurrent or constant.
How Common Is Tinnitus?
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that nearly 15% of the general public — over 50 million Americans — experience some form of tinnitus. Roughly 20 million people struggle with burdensome chronic tinnitus, while 2 million have extreme and debilitating cases.
Relief From Tinnitus Is Possible
Just because there is not a cure for tinnitus does not mean you should not receive treatment for tinnitus. If left untreated, tinnitus can have a significant negative impact on your quality of life. In addition to the presence of ongoing noise, people who suffer from untreated tinnitus can also suffer from fatigue, depression, anxiety, irritability, sleep problems, lack of concentration, and stress. Getting some sort of relief might not be able to entirely stop your tinnitus; but it will help to restore your quality of life.
