For many of us, New Year’s Eve is a time to celebrate with family and friends. However the fireworks explosions at midnight and loud music at gigs and parties can result in a ringing in the ears that lasts well into the New Year. The Tinnitus Clinic has put together a few tips which can help reduce your risk of tinnitus and hearing loss throughout the party season and beyond.
At this time of the year, many of you may be making your resolutions for 2012. It may be that you’re aiming for a promotion at work or plan to spend more time in the gym. However, if you’re living with tinnitus, you may find that the constant ringing in your ears is a distraction from all your other goals.
Some of our website visitors may have seen the recent pieces about The Tinnitus Clinic and Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation in Country Life Magazine and Shooting Gazette. These stories both mentioned the link between tinnitus, hearing loss and exposure to shot gun and rifle fire.
Some of you may have already read Peter Humphries’ story, either on our website or in the press. Peter was one of our first patients here at The Tinnitus Clinic. He had lived with tinnitus for 20 years before beginning the Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation treatment in June 2011.
It's been a busy month here at The Tinnitus Clinic, with a lot of enquiries coming in about our new treatment for tinnitus, Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation. To answer some of the questions people have asked, we've produced a new brochure which explains the science behind this form of tinnitus therapy, its success rates and the treatment process.
We live in stressful times. In October 2010, the BBC reported on a University of Manchester study which found that work stress levels had risen by 4% in the previous two years. The article states that stress 'could trigger depression, anxiety, workplace injuries and suicide, and lead to a greater risk of heart disease.'
The results of a new study into using Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation for the treatment of tinnitus was presented at the Fifth International TRI (Tinnitus Research Initiative) Tinnitus Conference 2011, in the USA.
Up to 10% of adults in the UK experience mild tinnitus or worse. It is characterised by a perception of ringing, buzzing, whistling, roaring or hissing in the ears. As well being caused by regular exposure to loud noise, triggers for tinnitus can also include ear or head injuries, infections, medication side effects and emotional stress.
An important part of my mission at The Tinnitus Clinic is to share our knowledge of tinnitus; its causes, how to prevent it and what to do if you are suffering from the condition. This blog will go some way in achieving this aim.
