Understanding Tinnitus

Tinnitus is not a disease itself but rather a symptom that manifests as persistent ringing, whistling, hissing, buzzing, or pulsing sounds in one or both ears. These phantom sounds can only be heard by the affected individual and can vary in intensity and frequency. For some, tinnitus is intermittent, while for others, it is a constant presence that disrupts everyday life. According to the American Tinnitus Association, over 50 million Americans experience tinnitus to some degree. If you are bothered by these phantom sounds, seeking professional help is crucial in managing your symptoms and enhancing your well-being.

Causes of Tinnitus

The most common cause of tinnitus is damage to the sensory organ of hearing, the cochlea, also known as the inner ear. The sensory cells in the inner ear are most vulnerable to aging. Another common cause of tinnitus is excessive noise exposure. It may be the result of exposure to loud sounds. It may be a side effect of ototoxic medications, or it might be due to your age. No matter what the cause, the damage to the hearing system is real and it is important to address it.

Ongoing research is being conducted to better understand the mechanisms behind tinnitus that originates in the brain as a result of a hearing issue.

Tinnitus Treatment

While there is no cure for tinnitus (as there is also no cure for cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc.) there is an abundance of well-documented research, and FDA approved treatment options are available to reduce and, in some cases, eliminate, the tinnitus. Read more in Dr. Rauch’s report here.

“I had a great experience here and I have a home for my lifelong hearing management. I’m fairly young - in my 40’s, so I was surprised to have my hearing loss confirmed. It couldn’t have been a better experience though. They really helped me understand the clinical reasons - like preventing cognitive decline - and helped me get used to a whole new world where I hear sounds like crinkling paper and running water that I had no idea I was missing!”

“Dr. Rauch and her staff are by far the most compassionate folks I have ever met. They went above and beyond to make sure that my young daughter had exactly what she needed to be able to hear properly again. You can honestly tell that it is their passion to help people hear the world around them. Dr. Rauch and her staff make you feel like family instead of just a number like so many doctors do these days. To hear my daughter sing to herself again is beyond priceless. Thank you.”
