Having said that, treatment and management therapies are available at EYiasis Neurootology Department. The goal is to help reduce the impact of tinnitus so that people can live a normal active life.
The aim of treatments, such as sound therapy, relaxation therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), is to help people effectively ignore or manage their tinnitus.
Some treatments such as acupuncture therapies, also aim to reduce the stress that can exacerbate tinnitus.

Of course, if there is an underlying cause of tinnitus that can be easily treated, such as an ear-wax blockage or an ear infection, treating this may get rid of the tinnitus.
At EYiasis ENT Medical centre we recommend:
It is important to understand that it can take time for things to improve, be it the stress associated with tinnitus or the tinnitus symptoms themselves.
The ultimate goal of all treatment plans is essentially: to break the negativity associated with tinnitus. Some immediate relief may be achieved, but ultimately the aim is to become more comfortable with the tinnitus. Furthermore, it’s important to realise that it’s not life threatening and, that patients are always in control of their response to it.
What’s recommended for each patient will depend on the nature of their tinnitus, how it impacts them and whether they have any other underlying problems, like hearing loss, or stress.
