Providing You With Relief From Tinnitus
Tinnitus is the name for the noises you can hear in your ears that others cannot.
It can be buzzing, ticking, hissing, or any type of sound. If you’ve ever experienced a ringing in your ears after going to a concert, then it’s actually very similar to tinnitus!
According to National Center for Health Statistics studies, it is estimated to affect 32% of the US population – that’s a third of all Americans.
While most people understand tinnitus as a condition that never goes away, it can be either an acute (temporary) condition or a chronic (ongoing) health condition.
If you’re someone who is unfortunate enough to endure the ringing in your ears, then you’ll be aware of how much it can drive you up the wall.
Lack of sleep, restlessness, anxiety, and stress are all common side effects of the condition.
The more stressed an individual gets, the worse their tinnitus will be, making it a hard cycle to break and one that can cause someone to feel incredibly frustrated – especially as doctors claim there is “no cure.”
At Jacobs Audiology, we understand your frustrations too well. With many of our doctors suffering from tinnitus themselves, we understand your daily struggles first hand.
Using a combination of methods, we have carefully identified some of the most effective treatments which aim to reduce its severity and allow you to live an uninterrupted life.
If you or a loved one is experiencing tinnitus, please get in touch so we can help provide you with some relief.

As tinnitus ranges largely from person to person, we like to start your appointment with a friendly chat about your tinnitus, touching on your lifestyle, family history, and perhaps hearing concerns. From there, we will follow up with a tinnitus questionnaire which allows our experts to examine how your tinnitus affects you in your everyday life.
You will have the opportunity to discuss how tinnitus is affecting you personally.
#3 – Tinnitus Examination
To confirm the results, a hearing and tinnitus examination will be performed. This helps us to determine the pitch and loudness of your tinnitus, allowing us to identify the correct strategies to help you manage your tinnitus.
#4 – Ongoing Help And Support
You will be supported throughout your journey with follow-up appointments and check-ups, ensuring you can raise any concerns whenever possible. We see you as partners for life, not just another customer through the door, so it’s important for us to have regular contact throughout.
