How do hearing aids provide significant tinnitus relief?
"Hearing aids can augment the volume of external noise to the point that it covers (masks) the sound of tinnitus. This makes it more difficult to consciously perceive tinnitus and helps the brain focus on outside, ambient noises" (American Tinnitus Association).
What is the Evidence That Hearing Aids Help Tinnitus?
The Evidence is Considerable:
The paper 'Hearing Aids & Hearing Therapy: A 25 Year Experience ' by Trotter/Donaldson studied 1440 tinnitus patients. 96% found significant improvement with their tinnitus after hearing aid use.
'Hearing More to Hear Less: A Scoping Review of Hearing Aids For Tinnitus' (L.Jaquemin et al, 2021) - This study pulled together 28 previous studies and found that only 14 % of tinnitus patients did not find any benefit from hearing aids.
'Hearing AId Effectiveness on Patients with Chronic Tinnitus' by P. Simonetti, 2021 concluded the following: 'our study has provided evidence that Hearing Aid use is a valuable treatment strategy for chronic tinnitus relief....'
What is the First Step to Tinnitus Relief?
Hearing Aid Use is Generally Considered the First Step in Tinnitus Treatment
Due to the high level of success and speed in which hearing aids can provide tinnitus relief, most GPs, ENT consultants and audiologists will recommend hearing aid use at the outset. 'Talking Therapies like Tinnitus Counselling and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) may also prove somewhat beneficial but most patients do not need more than hearing aids to provide them with sufficient relief. 'Talking Therapies' have considerably less success and they take time, whereas hearing aid use can provide quick substantial relief. Therefore, it is best to consider hearing aids first, and then add 'talking therapies later if further relief is required.
For the vast majority of tinnitus patients, medical intervention would not help e.g. drugs, surgery etc.
Our tinnitus service is based with the London Neuro-Otology Centre. Should medical intervention or 'talking therapies' be recommended beyond just hearing aid use, then we can refer you to the relevant professionals within the centre.
