Tinnitus

Tinnitus is the perception of sound within the human ear in the absence of corresponding external sound. Tinnitus can be perceived in one or both ears or in the head. It is usually described as a ringing noise, but in some patients it takes the form of buzzing, humming, or whistling sound, or as clicking, roaring, “crickets” and tunes. Tinnitus is not a disease but a symptom resulting from a range of underlying causes. Still, tinnitus is happening in our brain and being a progressive condition is affecting brain functions more and more while making the life of the patient very difficult and a constant never ending struggle.

For years, people who experienced chronic and/or severe tinnitus or hyperacusis have tried everything from acupuncture to drug therapy to try to stop the persistent noises they hear. But also for many years successful TRT treatments let you relieve these severe symptoms completely and reclaim your life.

TINNITUS TREATMENT

We do NOT use masking as part of our tinnitus treatment.

We are proud to provide our patients with a successful: Tinnitus, Hyperacusis And Misophonia Treatment conducted accordingly to the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery Foundation, First Clinical Practice Guideline on Tinnitus to more than 300 patients annually.

Our clinic is one of the very few clinics in North America conducting the full tinnitus treatment, which is designed to do more than just a significant improvement of tinnitus. Using advances in neuroscience and advanced brain conditioning protocols treatment used in our clinic is known to be effective in removing chronic tinnitus from awareness of the suffering person. Working with a team of professionals, every person going through the process is treated as an individual with personal attention and care to the point where chronic tinnitus is gone from the system. We are working closely with the patient as long as it takes to make this happen. For some people it takes months for some other it can take longer, but the combination of TRT plus psychology interventions (if necessary) with the elements from neuroscience is known to be very effective. This treatment is used in Europe as well in a limited number of clinics in the US for many years. We are proud to be the only clinic in Ontario which is able to provide this treatment successfully for many years.

A year ago today I learned what it felt like to lose simple things such as the ability to be around people and their voices... click to read more
