Tonal Tinnitus Notch Therapy

Tinnitus Notch therapy has been successfully used in Europe for years.  Signia Hearing systems has now brought it to the United States, and Advanced Audiology is one of the first ten clinics in the nation to be trained in this treatment.  This therapy uses a unique “notch” abatement within a hearing aid to train your brain “not to hear” your tinnitus.  It is a passive treatment, meaning you don’t have to do anything but wear your hearing aids for it to be effective.  As will all tinnitus  therapies, reprogramming your brain can take months, but this new treatment may just be the answer you’ve been looking for.
