Hearing instruments are often the first step, and can
reduce the effects of tinnitus, but they aren’t the only
therapy. Symptoms that can’t be alleviated by hearing
instruments can be addressed through sound therapy,
counseling and management therapies, stress
management, and other techniques.
It’s also important to get help with the potentially debilitating
impact that tinnitus has on your life. People
who suffer from severe tinnitus can also suffer from
depression, stress, anxiety, and fatigue. These issues
can form a vicious circle of symptoms with each one
making the others worse. If you experience anxiety,
depression or sleep problems, along with tinnitus,
then seek help from a qualified therapist. Effective
management of these conditions can help you feel
better and reduce the severity of your tinnitus.
