Tinnitus Treatment Solutions

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

Medications

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.

      What Can The

      Lyric Hearing Device Do For Me?

      Approximately one in five adults (12 million people) in Britain today are currently experience hearing difficulties. This figure is expected to rise to one in three by 2025.

      Lyric is suitable for patients who have mild to moderate hearing loss and will help meet an ever growing demand from the baby-boomer generation. Also the device is perfect for young-at-heart consumers in their 50s and 60s who want to boost their hearing to stay at their best but don’t want to draw attention to a problem typically associated with ageing.  According to a variety of experts, people currently struggle for 10 years on average with hearing loss before seeking advice. This is in large part due to the social stigma and inconvenience associated with traditional hearing devices required for this invisible disability.

      Why is this device unique?

      Unlike any other type of hearing aid device on the market today, Lyric’s sound quality is clean and undistorted.  It is placed in the ear canal by a hearing aid audiologist that is specially trained in implanting and configuring the Lyric hearing aid. There are currently only a select few locations in Scotland that are trained to provide this device, with the procedure taking just a few minutes, with no need for surgery or anaesthesia.

      With Lyric, there are no batteries to change, no maintenance is needed, and no daily insertion or removal is required. Users need only visit their audiologist every few months, whereupon Lyric is quickly and easily replaced with a new device.  Using a magnetic adjustment tool, users can adjust the volume themselves and turn the device on and off.

      Because of the deep placement of the device in the ear canal, there are also other wide ranging advantages. These includes retaining the ears natural ability to tell where sounds are coming from, reduced or eliminated whistling, huge reduction of wind noises, and the ability to use ear-level devices such as a telephone or in the ear headphones just like you would normally.

      Chris Stone (Director of the Hearing Clinic UK) says; “The Lyric invisible hearing aid is a major advancement in hearing aid technology. The technological breakthoughs ensure people who are hard of hearing and very conscious about wearing a hearing device have the freedom to hear better in an invisible way. Combining the two best elements of this hearing aid, its tiny size with the latest micro-technology the Lyric provides users with the opportunity to get the very best from their hearing.”

      Frequently Asked Questions

      About Lyric

      Lyric can be worn when swimming but we do recommend that you use swim plugs if you wish to place your head under the water. We are happy to supply these with your initial fitting of lyric.

      Wax can cause problems with any hearing aid so it is important to keep your ears as clear of wax as you can. We offer microsuction wax removal and can safely and comfortably remove any build up prior to inserting your Lyric.

      We only offer Lyric from our main centre in Glasgow at this moment however we are able to offer free lyric assessments at all of our clinics. The reason for this is we require the use of highly specialised equipment (notably an ENT microscope and other specialised fitting and tuning equipments) which are located in our main centre.

        What Is

        Ear Wax Microsuction?

        Ear Wax MicroSuction by The Hearing Clinic UKMicrosuction is the safest, most effective way of cleaning wax build up and any obstruction caused by foreign bodies down the ear canal. The procedure uses a sophisticated microscope which provides a magnified light source enabling the delicate structures of the ear canal to be viewed throughout the whole procedure.

        Ear Wax removal using Microsuction is performed with the aid of an operating microscope and a finely calibrated suction device, without the introduction of any materials or liquids.

        Microsuction is a very well tolerated by the majority of people, gives you fast results hence it is much more effective than the traditional wax removal methods. It is also SAFE, as the physician can see the structures inside your ear.

        It is very rare that people may need wax softening with ear products, commonly olive oil, typically though, most clients manage to have their ears cleared in one session without any wax pre-treatment.

        Frequently Asked Questions

        About Ear Wax Removal

        The treatment can be administered as required. Some clients have the treatment a couple of times a year, others less frequently. As the microsuction removal treatment is a far more gentle procedure than other types of ear wax removal, you can come back far more regularly for treatment. There are clients who attend the clinic around three times a year for routine check up’s.

        In most cases we can remove the wax without any softening being required to the microsuction treatment. We do recommend that you place two drops of oil (almond or olive oil are suitable) into your ear the night before your appointment. In the instance that we cannot remove all of the wax, we recommend to return within a week for further treatment.

        We only recommend microsuctioning for ear was removal and offer the service at all of their clinic locations. It is even possible to have a home visit if required.

          What Services
          Does The Hearing Clinic UK Offer?

          One of the biggest questions we are asked, is why choose a private hearing aid clinic? Research has found that selecting the best provider may be the single most important factor in your journey to better hearing.

          Why is this so important?

          Audiology is a science which over the years has benefited from extensive research. The output from all this research gives our Audiologists a roadmap for best practice which we follow in our clinics. Unfortunately this best practice is not always followed in our profession.

          Corners are often cut to meet efficiency, through lack of training, lack of experience or lack of motivation. This means that millions of people are walking around without gaining the maximum from their hearing solution.

          Research shows that best results come from fitting hearing aids using Real Ear Probe Microphone Technology – this is the gold standard and one which we meet in each of our world class hearing clinics.

          We guarantee that your hearing aids will be fitted to your exact needs. We back this up with our industry leading risk free guarantee – offering you 60 days to make sure they are perfect for you.
