Breakthrough treatment for tinnitus.
Neuromonics is clearly the most effective treatment for tinnitus sufferers who do not get relief from hearing aids. As I noted in a previous post about successful tinnitus treatments, 90% of patients find relief of their symptoms with Neuromonics.
Neuromonics improves on previous treatments by combining several partially successful ones, like masking and tinnitus retraining/biofeedback, and then enhances those results through neural pathway desensitization. A recent article in the Baltimore Sun notes that the US Department of Defense has taken an interest in Neuromonics to help soldiers who suffer from tinnitus as a result of loud noise exposure.
Only a few research centers in the US, like Duke University, have offered Neuromonics until recently. Neuromonics is now available at ENT and Allergy Specialists for our patients.
