Healthpointe’s otolaryngologists, medical practitioners who attend to patients with ear, nose and throat disorders, are now offering a wide variety of treatments for tinnitus. Tinnitus is a common issue which is characterized by the presence of phantom sounds or ringing in the ears. Affecting 1 in 5 people, tinnitus is a prevalent symptom that can arise due to aging, injury, or disorder and while it is non-fatal, tinnitus can impede a person’s quality of life.
Dr. Nazih M. Haddad, Healthpointe’s leading ENT doctor, provides quality consultations in order to identify the underlying causes of Tinnitus and remove or reduce the ringing sensation. The physicians at Healthpointe can prescribe electronic noise concealers such as white noise machines, hearing aids, and masking equipment in order to reduce the phantom noise caused by tinnitus. Medications can also be prescribed for tinnitus; although they will not cure the symptom, they have proven effective in reducing the severity of the problem.
Tinnitus is a common sign of noise-induced hearing loss, which is an exposure to loud sounds such as musical concerts, gunfire, or power tools; however, it can also be caused by neurological damage, ear infections, and excessive stress. Tinnitus may cause dizziness, fatigue, depression, sleep disturbances, or hallucinations; it is highly advisable that those affected by tinnitus visit an otolaryngologist.
Hearing loss is permanent but the risks can be minimized if treated promptly. Healthpointe’s doctors and physicians are available for consultations on all ear, nose, and throat related concerns; for more information please call (800) 956-2663 or visit www.Healthpointe.net
