What Is Tinnitus?
Tinnitus is defined as a sensation of sound in your ears, or sometimes in your head. Each person with tinnitus has a different experience. Patients have described sounds that range from ringing to whooshing to the sound inside of a seashell. Tinnitus is experienced by 80% of people with hearing loss. Some people only notice their tinnitus in a quiet room, whereas others experience the sound all day long. Whether you experience tinnitus intermittently or constantly, we understand how much it can interfere with your daily life.
What Causes Tinnitus?
The prevailing theory on why people with hearing loss experience tinnitus is called the “Central Gain” theory. According to this theory, the sound you hear in your ears or head is the result of a loss of proper stimulation present in normal hearing individuals. In other words, because your brain is not properly stimulated by your ear, the brain attempts to make up for the missing stimulation, resulting in over-exciting your system. This neurological phenomenon has been likened to “phantom limb” experience.
How Can You Treat Tinnitus?
Fortunately, there is a safe treatment option available today. In fact, the only FDA-approved treatment option for tinnitus is to provide your brain with the proper stimulation. There is no pill, no surgery, no other available option approved to treat tinnitus. Today’s treatment options are available for people with hearing loss, as well as for individuals with normal hearing. Most patients who undergo therapy at our Torrance tinnitus treatment center report a significant reduction in their daily tinnitus experience. Some even say the ringing disappears completely during the day!
