Find tinnitus treatment in Osseo, MN

Tinnitus is a symptom that is strongly associated with forms of hearing loss. If you hear ringing, roaring, clicking or hissing in your ears often or all the time, it is very likely you are suffering from tinnitus. In this case you should come in to see our expert team in Osseo, MN for tinnitus treatment.

Treatment

There is no cure for tinnitus but there are several tinnitus treatment options to deliver some relief. Sound Therapy and Counseling is a treatment designed to retrain the brain to ignore the tinnitus. This is achieved with the use of sound generators or hearing instruments to partially mask the tinnitus. These devices mixed together improve communication and reduce stress.

Instructional and cognitive counseling is a tinnitus treatment used to change the perception of the tinnitus, and is an important addition to sound therapy.

Other tinnitus treatment options include hearing aids, maskers, medicine or drug therapy, counseling and relaxing.

Personal treatment

Many of our patients in Osseo ask us what they can do on their own to cope with tinnitus. Music is always a first recommendation. It can help you focus your brain on something else and mask the tinnitus. Listening to nature sounds can also provide this type of masking relief.

It is important to avoid things that can make your condition worse like smoking, alcohol and loud noises. If you regularly work in loud noisy areas, wear ear plugs. However, complete silence can worsen your tinnitus, so avoid this too.
