#HearingFactFriday: Hearing aids and music can help make tinnitus better

It is an unfortunate fact of the world that tinnitus — which affects nearly one in six Americans — has no known cure. You cannot take something or do something to make the ringing in your ears go away for good.

Fortunately, for most tinnitus sufferers, there are things you can do to manage it and experience relief from tinnitus.

The American Tinnitus Association — the nation’s foremost and trusted organization committed to finding cures for tinnitus — notes that in the absence of a cure, “the primary objective for all currently available tinnitus treatment options is to lower the perceived burden of tinnitus.”

One treatment option they list is hearing aids. And the American Academy of Audiology agrees, writing that, along with music, “the provision of hearing aids offers substantial benefit to a significant number of people suffering with tinnitus.”
