Preventive Measures for Tinnitus

Noise induced tinnitus, acquired from a history of noise exposure is considered as the most common form of tinnitus. Onset of tinnitus may occur very suddenly or gradually. Exposure to a very loud sound may result in temporary or permanent tinnitus. Here are a few preventive measures for tinnitus:

  • Avoid exposure to excessively loud noise. Be cautious about the noise level for the events or activities you plan to attend (i.e., concerts, sporting events may be loud)
  • Try to wear hearing protection even for activities around the house such as blow-drying your hair, or when using a lawnmower
  • Practice stress management and relaxation techniques.
  • Consult your physician about the possible effects prescribed medications may have on your auditory system

Clinical Update About Our Treatment

Pilot Results

In our early clinical trials, participants reported significant relief, with an almost 50% drop in Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI) scores after 6 months of using our therapy. THI scores are a validated measure of how severely tinnitus affects a person’s life.

Participants enjoyed the music that was used in their treatment and were able to incorporate listening to their customized sound therapy  into their daily routine. Some participants would listen for single 2 to 3 hour sessions, while others broke up the listening sessions into multiple 30 to 60 minute sessions each day.  With these commitments we were able to see gradual improvements in the THI as well as perceived tinnitus loudness. Our efforts to design an enjoyable and convenient sound therapy were intended to make it easier for tinnitus sufferers to use the sound therapy in a range of situations and with different life styles.

We look forward to updating you with more information about our clinical work in the coming weeks.

We are excited to inform you that there are several clinics that are working with us or will be starting to work with us in the coming weeks. What this means is that tinnitus sufferers will have the option to come in to a clinic in person to have their hearing and tinnitus assessed and to then obtain our sound therapy from participating audiologists.  If you want to find out more about obtaining your own customized sound therapy through a partnering clinic, you can contact us.  We will also be listing partners and their locations for your convenience.  If you have any other questions about your tinnitus treatment options, please let us know!
