How to Treat Tinnitus

Story at-a-glance -

  • Tinnitus, a chronic ringing in your ears, affects an estimated 1 in 10 adults. The sounds are caused when cells are damaged inside your inner ear
  • Inner ear damage leading to tinnitus can be caused by loud sounds, medications, poor posture, head or neck injuries, TMJ problems, certain diseases, genetic disorders, ear infections and electromagnetic field (EMF) exposure
  • Researchers have found a significant association between tinnitus and EMF hypersensitivity, hinting at a shared pathophysiology, namely the overactivation of the cortical distress network
  • More than half of EMF hypersensitive patients report tinnitus, compared to just over 17 percent of controls. Tinnitus duration and severity did not differ between the two groups
  • The Levo System is a new device cleared by the U.S. FDA as a treatment option for tinnitus. By mimicking the sound of your tinnitus, it allows your brain to become more accustomed to the sound, thereby making it more tolerable
