Tinnitus is the perception of sound in the ears or head where no external source is present. Some call it “ringing in the ears” or “head noise.”Most patients who seek medical help for their tinnitus learn that there is no serious medical problem causing their condition. This knowledge alone is often enough to allow some to adapt to the sounds they hear. Other people, however, experience tinnitus as disruptive and stress-inducing and need help learning how to cope with the sounds.
An estimated 50 million people in the U.S. alone suffer from tinnitus. Of those, 16 million have sought medical attention for their tinnitus and 2-3 million are completely disabled from it. But there is help out here. Tinnitus can be managed. Many people with tinnitus are unaware that useful treatments exist. At Thompson & Hoffman we have a passion for helping people understand their tinnitus, identify the cause, and assist with retraining patients to cope with their tinnitus and reduce the tinnitus experienced.
