Tinnitus can be frustrating and debilitating, causing a persistent ringing or buzzing sound in the ears or head. While there is no cure for tinnitus, there are many treatment options available that can help manage its symptoms and improve your quality of life.
Below, we will explore the 5 best tinnitus treatment options available in 2023, including Widex's Zen and SoundRelax solutions:
1. Zen Therapy
Widex Zen Therapy is a unique sound therapy approach designed to relieve tinnitus symptoms. It creates soothing, customisable sounds to help distract the brain from the perception of tinnitus. Zen Therapy can be used with Widex hearing aids or as a standalone app.
2. Widex SoundRelax™
SoundRelax is the newest innovative sound therapy solution from Widex. It uses fractal tones to create a calming sound environment that are proven to reduce stress and improve mood. SoundRelax can be used with Widex hearing aids.
3. Hearing Aids
Hearing aids can be a powerful tool for managing tinnitus, especially if you also have hearing loss. By amplifying external sounds, hearing aids can help reduce the perception of tinnitus and improve your overall hearing.
4. Meditation and Relaxation
Meditation and relaxation techniques can help reduce the stress and anxiety that can worsen tinnitus symptoms. Deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, or mindfulness meditation can be especially helpful. You can find many apps and guided meditations online to help you get started.
While no medication can cure tinnitus, certain medications may help manage its symptoms. For example, antidepressants or anti-anxiety medications may be prescribed if you are experiencing emotional distress related to tinnitus. Always consult with a healthcare professional before starting any medication.
While tinnitus cannot be cured, many effective treatment options are available in 2023. From sound therapy solutions like Zen and SoundRelax to hearing aids, cognitive behavioural therapy, and medication, there is a treatment option that can work for you.
