What is Tinnitus? 

Are you hearing ringing, whistling, hissing, buzzing, or pulsing sounds?

Tinnitus, a term denoting the perception of sound within the head and/or ears, can manifest at any stage of life. While not exclusively indicative of hearing impairment, a significant portion of individuals experiencing tinnitus also report hearing loss. As per statistics provided by the Tinnitus Association of Canada, over 360,000 Canadians suffer with this condition, with 150,000 among them expressing a notable diminishment in their quality of life due to the associated auditory disturbances.

Tinnitus as a symptom rather than a standalone ailment. Its onset can stem from various factors, including but not limited to aging, head trauma, infections, prolonged exposure to loud noise, pharmaceutical interventions, excessive ear wax accumulation, whiplash injuries, emotional or physical stressors.

Can tinnitus be cured?

Despite concerted efforts by numerous researchers, a definitive cure for tinnitus remains elusive. However, the absence of a cure should not be equated with despair or hopelessness; avenues for relief and support exist. Analogous to other degenerative conditions like diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and cancer, where curative solutions remain undiscovered, management strategies offer meaningful alleviation.

We stand prepared to assist in the management of your tinnitus through the utilization of ear-level devices. Remarkably, a significant proportion of individuals who adopt such interventions from the onset report either complete cessation or a marked reduction in the intensity of the perceived sound. With our support, there exists a tangible pathway toward effectively managing the impact of tinnitus on your daily life.
