Tinnitus treatment and ringing ears

Do you have a constant ringing in your ears?

What is tinnitus?

Tinnitus or ringing in the ears is a very common complaint and can indicate hearing loss as a result of exposure to noise or, unfortunately, the normal ageing process. Find out more about what tinnitus is.

There are many causes of tinnitus – it can be as simple as wax against the eardrum or as serious as a tumour on the hearing nerve so it is important to be diagnosed properly.

Tinnitus can be a mild annoyance or a serious and debilitating disease that can impact your health and well-being in many ways.

The good news is there is treatment available.

QVCC’s tinnitus treatment programs

QVCC have developed three audiological tinnitus treatment programs. Each program is targeted at patients with different severities of tinnitus. From mild tinnitus through to debilitating tinnitus that has an impact on someone’s lifestyle.

The last program, aimed at people who experience discomfort from their tinnitus uses a combination of amplification (hearing aids) and masking (noise generation).

Tinnitus treatment with hearing aids

The most common method of treatment is usually with hearing aids. By resolving the hearing loss it allows access to the softer environmental sounds that the sufferer is missing out on which in turn masks the tinnitus. Find out more…
