Tinnitus Treatment

Goshen Speech and Hearing Center specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of tinnitus. Our goal is to accurately diagnose patients and provide or recommend treatment so that patients may resume normal activities. Tinnitus is a symptom referred to as ringing in the ears, but can also occur as buzzing, clicking, or hissing in one or both ears. Tinnitus is commonly caused by noise-induced hearing loss, but other health conditions such as sinus infections, brain tumors, Ménière’s disease, head injuries, ear infections, and medication side effects can also cause tinnitus symptoms. Experiencing tinnitus may signal the first sign of hearing loss, but tinnitus can also occur without hearing loss. Otolaryngologists and audiologists will work together to identify the underlying cause responsible for tinnitus. The otolaryngologist will perform a head, neck, and ear exam and decide if additional testing is warranted, such as hearing evaluations or radiologic imaging. The audiologist will perform a complete audiological evaluation in order to assess tinnitus and determine if hearing loss exists with the tinnitus. There is not a cure for tinnitus at this time, but various management devices and techniques exist to address the problem. Forms of tinnitus treatment include hearing aids, biofeedback, tinnitus maskers, habituation therapy, vitamin therapy, and counseling. Goshen Speech and Hearing Center provides therapeutic techniques to diagnose and treat the cause of your symptoms. We provide professional audiology and speech-language therapy services to the Orange County, NY and Greater Hudson Valley community as well as the surrounding areas of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut.
