Tinnitus is the medical term for the perception of sound when no external sound is present. It is often referred to as “ringing in the ears”, although some people hear hissing, roaring, whistling, chirping or clicking. But tinnitus and other sound tolerance issues aren't just irritating - they can have a negative effect on a person's entire life, making it difficult to get a good night's sleep, hard to concentrate, and even increase anxiety and trigger depression.
But there is a way to help restore peace in your life if you're suffering from tinnitus. It's called Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT). This therapy is precisely geared toward the individual sufferer, and helps patients learn how to lead a normal life without triggering symptoms. We measure the success of therapy by how a patient's quality of life improves.
Hyperacusis is a reduced tolerance to normal environmental sounds and is a fairly rare auditory disorder. Our assessments and resulting recommendations/therapies can help significantly reduce the negative effects of tinnitus or hyperacusis on your daily life. Like tinnitus, it can be treated with TRT, which helps to mitigate and reduce the negative effects of the ailment.
