Tinnitus Options

in Southern Utah & Northern Nevada

Tinnitus is a frustrating thing where you'll hear a "ringing in the ears" when there is no actual external noise present. It can manifest itself with various sounds beyond just ringing such as whistling, hissing, swooshing, buzzing, and clicking. Surprisingly some people actual report hearing music.

If you've experienced or are currently experiencing this then realize there are millions of people in America who are as well. The CDC estimates there are roughly 50 million people, or 15% of the population that is affected by this, making it one of the most common health conditions in America. It can range from a mild nuisance to a extreme or debilitating condition, although these extreme cases are small accounting for only about 2 million people of the overall total cases.

There are actually two types of tinnitus, subjective and objective:


Subjective Tinnitus

is the more common type, and only affects what you hear. It's caused by issues with your inner, outer, and middle ear; as well as potentially nerves on part of your brain that are in charge of interpreting the nerve signals. There are tiny hairs within your inner ear that move in relation to the waves that sounds make. Which triggers these delicate hairs to send electrical signals to your brain, which your brain interprets as sound. So if these hairs get damaged or bent they can "leak" random electrical signals to your brain, which causes tinnitus.


Objective Tinnitus

is quite rate and is caused when a doctor has done an examination that causes a blood vessel problem, a muscle contraction, or bone condition. This is very rare, only affecting 1% of all cases.


Tinnitus Treatment Options

- From Local Specialists

Dr. Lance F. Greer (Au.D.)

Tinnitus is never fun, and although there aren't currenlty any known cure's, there are treatment options that we can use to mask, and reduce the intensity of it. No two cases are the same, so there is no "best" treatment option, only the "best" for you.

Dr. Eric L. Maxwell (Au.D)

Before we prescribe treatment options we need to understand the underlying medical condition that's causing it, the first step is to treat the condition if possible. If this fails to solve the issue we have further options such as masking devices and medications we can help you with.
