What is tinnitus?

Tinnitus can be described as a noise in the ears which often sounds like ringing, buzzing, whistling, humming or roaring. Some people have tinnitus now and then, whilst for others it is a constant, debilitating noise, which disrupts sleeping cycles.

What causes tinnitus?

There are many causes for tinnitus, with the most common origin being hearing loss. Tinnitus has a high prevalence in Australia as well as many other parts of the world. It is estimated that over 30% of the Australian population suffer from tinnitus. [1]

Whilst there is a high prevalence of tinnitus, many people do not seek out help for tinnitus because of a misconception that it is not able to be treated.  However, there are clinically proven treatments for reducing the impact which this condition has on your quality of life.
