Tinnitus Treatment in Wenatchee, WA

Tinnitus is a condition that could affect as much as 30% of the population, according to the National Center for Health Statistics studies. If you have hearing loss, you’re even more at-risk for tinnitus, by as much as 75-80%. If you have buzzing or ringing in your ears, it’s vital to have your hearing checked as soon as possible. The audiologists and staff at Better Hearing are committed to helping you manage this condition to improve your everyday quality of life.

What is Tinnitus?

Tinnitus is a complex condition that can affect people differently. Some people hear a low buzz consistently, while others experience more of a ringing in their ears that can shrink or grow in intensity. There’s no consistent cause, either. Common causes of tinnitus include acute hearing damage from loud noises, frequent exposure to loud sounds, whiplash and head injuries, too much earwax and even side effects from medication!

No matter what causes it or how it manifests, tinnitus is a condition that needs individualized treatment. Without personalized treatment, it can grow progressively worse, exacerbating hearing loss, causing discomfort, reducing cognizance and affecting quality of life.

Tinnitus Treatment Options

Depending on your unique tinnitus case, there are several tinnitus treatment opportunities available. We’ll evaluate your condition and recommend the right approach. Options include:

  • Earwax Removal
    Removing compacted earwax and clearing the ear canal may reduce the prevalence of tinnitus and may improve your hearing.
  • Medication
    If your tinnitus is a side effect of medication, it may be recommended for you to discuss this with your primary care provider to see if an alternative medication may be an option.
  • Hearing Aids
    Tinnitus related to hearing loss is often effectively treated with the proper hearing aid. We can test and evaluate you for hearing loss and recommend the right device.
  • White Noise.
    White noise therapy is shown to help reduce the prevalence of tinnitus and can help soothe persistent ringing, buzzing or clicking.
