What Can We Do For You?

Tinnitus is the medical term to describe noises heard either in one ear, both ears or in the head. The sounds heard can vary from person to person, but the common link is that they don’t have an external source:

  • More than five million people in the UK have tinnitus.
  • It is not a disease or an illness; in most cases, it’s a symptom of a problem within the hearing system.

Research has shown that tinnitus can be linked to several things, including:

Hearing loss

Exposure to loud noise


Ear or head injuries

Some ear conditions and infections

Stress, metabolic & neurological disorders

However, sometimes there is no recognisable link. The exact cause of tinnitus is not yet fully understood and research is ongoing.

    How Can

    The Hearing Clinic UK Help Me?

    Tinnitus treatments

    The first step in treating any tinnitus condition is to discover what may be causing it. One of the challenges in evaluating what my be causing tinnitus and treating it, is that everyone experiences it differently. Measuring this is a subjective experience is very difficult for a lot of hearing practices to undertake. At The Hearing Clinic UK, our hearing care professionals are widely experienced in diagnosing tinnitus, and can help diagnose your specific issues. At a consultation we will start by asking lots of questions about your symptoms such as:

    • How long have you been suffering from this condition?
    • Is it intermittent or constant?
    • Is it worse at certain points of the day?
    • Is it a pulsating sensation?
    • In which ear do you hear the tinnitus? Or do you have the symptoms in both?
    • How loud is the noise?
    • Is it a high or low pitched noise?
    • Do you find the symptoms extremely bothersome or just a little irritating?
    • Are there certain conditions that make it worse such as exposure to noise or certain foods or beverages?
    • Does the sound change at all?

    Our hearing care professional will also ask for a report or outline of your medical history. After a thorough discussion of your symptoms and health history, the examination will begin with a visual inspection of your ears and standard behavioral tests of your hearing ability.

    Do hearing aids alleviate the symptoms of tinnitus?

    Depending on the results of your hearing evaluation with us, you may get a recommendation for one of the following types of tinnitus treatment.

    • If you have some form of hearing loss as well as tinnitus, hearing aids can often provide effective relief from your tinnitus whilst you are wearing them. Many hearing aids devices today even include tinnitus therapy features.
    • Tinnitus masking or noise suppression devices are also a common treatment options for tinnitus sufferers. This type of device is worn in the ear like a hearing aid and produces either a constant signal or tonal beats to compete with the existing sounds you are currently hearing. The hearing care professional will use the pitch matching and loudness matching tests to set the signal at a level and pitch similar to the tinnitus you are perceiving.
    • Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT) uses cognitive behavioral therapy in combination with a masking device to help you learn to ignore the background ringing noise in your ears.
    • A free-standing white noise generating machine. The symptoms of tinnitus are generally worse when you’re in a quiet environment, so being able to relax and mask the noise in a room using background sound might be all you need to help you ignore the ringing in your ears.
