Do you experience a ringing, humming, or buzzing sound without an external stimulus? Are you seeking relief from the debilitating effects this is having on your life? If you’re in the greater San Fernando Valley area, we can help!

That sensation is known as tinnitus (TIN-ih-tus), a condition often associated with hearing loss. Other causes include:

  • Exposure to loud sounds
  • Impacted ear wax
  • Head or neck injuries
  • Blood vessel disorders
  • Otosclerosis, or changes in the bones in your ear
  • Diseases, such as Meniere's
  • Ototoxic medications
  • Acoustic neuroma - a benign tumor that develops on the cranial nerve and affects hearing and balance

Tinnitus is referred to as a perceptive condition because no one else can sense exactly what you’re experiencing or the degree to which it’s impacting your life. Tinnitus affects approximately 20% of the adult U.S. population, causing sufferers to experience:

  • Sleep problems
  • Exhaustion
  • The inability to concentrate
  • Anxiety and depression

In the past, there was no treatment for tinnitus. Fortunately, because our understanding of the condition is growing, and technology is evolving, we now have the ability to offer tinnitus treatment and management options. 

At Universal Hearing Care, we understand the devastating impact tinnitus can have on your life. We provide tinnitus treatment and management options for patients in the greater San Fernando Valley, as well as those North in Valencia, West in Burbank and the surrounding communities in California.

Tinnitus treatment incorporates the use of hearing devices such as the Widex Zen Therapy (WZT), or the Phonak Tinnitus Protfolio to alleviate your symptoms. By using a small, hearing aid-like device with barely audible sound tones, your focus is drawn away from the ringing sound, making it less noticeable. The device can be customized to your personal preferences and is available with multiple settings.

You don’t have to suffer anymore. Our professionals at Universal Hearing Care can provide you with the tinnitus treatment and management you need so that you enjoy life to its fullest! Call now at  818.345.3200 or request your free consultation and to learn how we can help with your tinnitus.
