Tinnitus

Tinnitus

Tinnitus is the sensation of hearing sound in your ears or head when no external sound is present. Most Tinnitus sufferers describe the effects as “ringing in the ears” but it is also described as a buzzing, hissing, whistling, roaring, and even chirping.  The sound, effects, and degree to which Tinnitus affects your daily life is different and unique to each person.

Tinnitus is not a disease or even a condition- Tinnitus is a symptom of a different underlying issue or condition you may have, such as hearing loss, ear infections, or even high blood pressure.

Tinnitus Treatment

Tinnitus cannot be “cured” but it can be treated and the perception of noise can be combatted.  Ascent Audiology is proud to be one of the few in the area to offer advanced treatments for Tinnitus.

Tinnitus Masker

Using the power of Starkey Hearing Technology’s Multiflex Tinnitus Technology, our Tinnitus hearing aids create a customizable and comforting sound stimulus that can be fine-tuned to soothe the unique, irritating sounds a Tinnitus sufferer hears.

Tinnitus Modulation Program

Ascent Audiology & Hearing is proud to also Desyncra, a Tinnitus Modulation Program for patients who suffer from Tinnitus and have normal hearing.

Desyncra is a 36 week Tinnitus therapy delivered using therapeutic tones from an iPod and specialized Desyncra earphones.  This therapy is specifically customized to each patient’s unique needs and symptoms. Dr. Rankin will work with you to design your Tinnitus therapy throughout the whole process, including periodic adjustments to ensure the Tinnitus therapy remains optimized as you progress.

Desyncra has been applauded for the long-term relief it has been able to provide patients.  It is the ideal option for Tinnitus sufferers with normal hearing, and for those whose Tinnitus has not responded to a Tinnitus Masker.
