Can Tinnitus Be Cured in 2024?

can tinnitus be cured in 2024


Tinnitus is a common hearing disorder characterised by ringing or buzzing noises originating in your ear. Unfortunately, there is yet to be a decisive, permanent cure, but our ground-breaking tinnitus therapies have proven to be enormously effective, providing relief from symptoms in as little as one treatment.

Regain Hearing speaks with thousands of clients who find that tinnitus makes it hard to focus or concentrate on conversations, disrupts their sleep cycle, and causes problems watching TV, speaking on the phone or engaging in social activities.

In this article, we’ll outline the innovative tinnitus reduction techniques our expert audiologists use and clarify why seeking help is key to preventing your tinnitus from worsening.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Currently, there is no definitive cure for tinnitus. Medical and therapeutic interventions primarily focus on managing symptoms rather than completely eliminating the condition.
  2. Various treatments aim to alleviate the symptoms of tinnitus, including sound therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and medication that address underlying causes such as anxiety or hearing loss.
  3. Due to the diverse causes and manifestations of tinnitus, treatments are often customised. Success depends on individual factors, including the nature and severity of tinnitus, making a universal cure challenging.
  4. As leading audiologists with a growing network of clinics and services across the southeast UK, our skilled teams have developed groundbreaking new techniques and treatments that far surpass any of the common remedies. Read more about our private tinnitus treatment.

Why Is There No 100% Effective Cure for Tinnitus?

Part of the complexity of treating tinnitus is that it has multiple potential causes, risk factors and symptoms that can vary considerably between people. The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders estimates that as many as 10% to 25% of adults have some degree of tinnitus, and it can be linked to or exacerbated by:

  • Exposure to very loud or sustained noises.
  • Ongoing hearing loss.
  • Medications and drugs.
  • Ear infections and wax blockages.
  • Injuries to the head or neck.
  • Chronic health conditions.

There are numerous potential therapies you may have already tried – some people find these have some positive outcomes, although the effects are largely limited. They usually try to help distract you from focusing on inner ear noises rather than solving the problem altogether.

White noise therapies are perhaps the most commonly recommended. They aim to help tinnitus sufferers relax or get to sleep by creating a monotonous, low-level noise that forms a distraction.

Other treatment plans might include counselling to try and reduce the effects tinnitus has on your mental well-being, medications to treat underlying causes of anxiety, or cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).

Instead of trying to train your brain to be less distracted by ringing or buzzing noises or helping you cope with the stress tinnitus so often causes, we have developed a unique treatment protocol that reduces the audible sounds caused by tinnitus to a level where they are completely unnoticeable.

Our patients often report massive relief from tinnitus symptoms from their very first appointment, while others undergo a staggered series of therapies to gradually reduce the sounds caused by tinnitus, with instant improvement and continued reductions over time.

The bespoke, client-specific methodology we use is proven to work. It adapts the therapy to the individual rather than attempting to use the same treatment or interventions regardless of the cause, nature, and severity of your tinnitus.

Treatments always begin with an in-depth clinical assessment of your ear health, hearing loss, and tinnitus. This allows us to identify the exact frequency and pitch of the noises you are hearing, allowing us to target your therapy to reduce or eliminate those sounds entirely.

Regain Hearing’s audiologists will also provide comprehensive evaluations and testing, using cutting-edge technology and facilities to get to the bottom of any factors contributing to your tinnitus, ensuring we treat the actual root cause alongside the symptoms of tinnitus itself.

Can Tinnitus Therapy Guarantee Results?

We are delighted to offer customised tinnitus sound therapy and to have achieved remarkable results for our clients, many of whom have been struggling with tinnitus for years. The secret to this success is that we work on reducing tinnitus rather than masking the noises or referring our clients to counselling services that may have little impact.

Although results are always dependent on the extent of the tinnitus symptoms you’re experiencing and how well you respond to therapy, we have absolute confidence that every client will see considerable improvements from treatment one onward.

Our recent client testimonials showcase the positive effects tinnitus treatments can have:

How to Book a Private Tinnitus Consultation With Your Nearest Regain Hearing Clinic

We offer tinnitus treatments and full hearing assessments at each of our clinics and can also arrange at-home testing services if you find it difficult to travel. Your initial consultation will begin with a full series of tests using processes such as:

  • Tinnitus Matching: This test determines the quality, pitch, and nature of the tinnitus sounds you can hear, specifying exactly how tinnitus sounds to you to ensure we can target our sound therapy to your individual symptoms.
  • Pure Tone Audiometry: A well-regarded testing process that helps your audiologist determine the configuration, extent and type of hearing loss, identifying the softest tones you can hear.
  • Speech Discrimination: Analytical testing indicates your speech reception threshold, which is the lowest volume of spoken words you can comfortably hear and accurately recognise.

There are a few criteria to be considered suitable for tinnitus sound therapy, as we ask that you wait at least three months from the onset of your tinnitus before booking a consultation. That is because some types of tinnitus resolve naturally, often because it is caused by exposure to sudden and very loud noises – meaning therapy isn’t necessary.

Clients are also asked to expect a full ear examination so we can be satisfied that any underlying causes, such as an ear infection or injury, have been assessed, treated and resolved to maximise the effects of tinnitus sound therapy.

Otherwise, you are welcome to contact your nearest Regain Hearing clinic at your convenience. Our online appointment booking form is easy to use—simply share your contact details and the branch you’d like to attend, select ‘Tinnitus Treatment’ from the dropdown box, and add any details you want our audiology team to be aware of.
