Tinnitus Evaluation and Treatment
Tinnitus, or the sensation of hearing sounds internally when no such sound is present in the outside environment, is often reported as ringing, buzzing, or chirping in the ear(s), currently affects approximately 50 million people in the United States. The professionals at Augusta Audiology Associates perform complete tinnitus evaluations and counseling to assist patients to better understand tinnitus and find a workable solution for their lifestyle. Though there is currently much research being performed to gather more information about the cause of tinnitus, we know that tinnitus can be triggered and exacerbated by a number of environmental factors including the consumption of alcohol, caffeine, and high-sodium diets, as well as exposure to loud noise and increased levels of stress. There is currently no immediate cure for tinnitus, but the professionals at Augusta Audiology Associates are committed to help our patients deal with the presence of tinnitus in a way that is suitable for each patient’s lifestyle.
