At Coates Hearing Clinic, we strive to be a trusted and helpful resource for tinnitus treatment, no matter the degree or severity of your tinnitus. Fortunately, several treatments are available to help relieve tinnitus symptoms and improve quality of life.
During your tinnitus consultation, your hearing specialist will go over the various options for tinnitus treatment and will help you decide which one would best meet your needs and lifestyle.
Many of the treatment options available are FDA-approved. See the listing below.

Incorporating relaxation activities into your daily schedule can help alleviate the stress, frustration, and anger you may be experiencing with tinnitus because they can help you concentrate on something other than your symptoms. Your hearing specialist may suggest that you try relaxation activities, such as deep breathing exercises, yoga, and meditation, to help you manage your tinnitus better. Other relaxation activities such as walking, biking, cooking, swimming, and gardening, also have calming, beneficial effects.
You should work hard to obtain adequate rest and avoid over-fatiguing yourself because generally, patients who are tired seem to notice their tinnitus more. You should also avoid the use of nerve stimulants, such as excessive amounts of coffee and smoking.

Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT)
Widex “The Zen Program”
This program uses fractal tone technology where the sounds you hear are predictable but not repeating with the goal to rewire your brain and dull the effects of tinnitus. Your hearing specialist chooses an assortment of “musical tones” known as “Zen styles,” which are random and chime-like. These tones can be adjusted (tone pitch, tempo, volume) to suit your comfort level.
After treatment has taken place, further maintenance is important. This may include the management of associated health problems or ongoing therapies to support health and manage tinnitus.
