Tinnitus Management

Help and support for people who live with tinnitus

Tinnitus is the phantom perception of sound heard in the ears or head (ringing buzzing whistling). For some people tinnitus can have a detrimental impact on their quality of life.

Negative emotional feelings associated with the tinnitus play a major role in enhancing and maintaining its continued presence. Despite its high prevalence across the world, its neurophysiological underpinnings remain elusive. Whilst there is no universal cure, a variety of effective clinical management strategies exist to help provide relief and help put you back in control.

Detailed Hearing Assessment.

Needless to say, he appreciates all aspects of the condition and takes great pride in helping his patients to better understand and manage their tinnitus.

7 Steps to help ease your tinnitus

Talk to Dr. Jeff about your tinnitus

Simply book a comprehensive hearing assessment where we will thoroughly assess your hearing health and tinnitus symptoms, before making any clinical recommendations. On some occasions, we may need to refer you over to ENT for further investigation. Here at the Ear Care Specialists, we work with a private ENT consultant and can arrange for this to happen quickly. Alternatively, patients can be referred via the conventional NHS pathway depending on preference.
