Can a Hearing Aid Cure Tinnitus?

Posted by Admin |

Tinnitus is the perception of sound not caused by a source outside of your body. While it is commonly referred to as “ringing in the ears,” people with tinnitus report a variety of sounds, including buzzing, hissing, whistling, swooshing, and clicking.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control reports that more than 50 million Americans (or 15% of the general public) experience a form of tinnitus. Of these, 20 million suffer from chronic tinnitus. Two million people experience extreme, and sometimes debilitating, symptoms of tinnitus.
