Is there any sound in your ear or head? Tinnitus retraining Therapy will help you to get out of from this problem.

Tinnitus is the perception of sound in the head or the ears.Typically, an individual perceives the sound in the absence of outside sounds, and the perception is unrelated to any external source. In other words, tinnitus is the sound that only the subjected patient tends to hear.A common cause of tinnitus is inner ear cell damage.Thetinnitus retraining therapy (TRT) is a useful approach to the management and treatment of tinnitus.

In practical terms, TRT is a method aimed primarily at habituating tinnitus-evoked reactions of the brain and body, and secondarily, at habituation of tinnitus perception. Consequently, successful TRT patients are not bothered by their tinnitus, even though they are aware of it. Additionally, the amount of time the successful TRT patient perceives tinnitus is decreased.

Clinical Procedure

  1. The two main sections of TRT are:
  2. Educational counseling (which is intensive, individualized and interactive)
  3. Sound therapy.
  4. Counseling sessions are aimed at the reclassification of tinnitus into a category of neutral signals. During these sessions, tinnitus is demystified and patients are taught about physiological mechanisms of tinnitus and its distress, as well as the mechanisms through which tinnitus habituation can be achieved.

Patient Prior Preparation

  1. No major prior preparation is required for the patient.
  2. The patient should be relaxed for this test, since any tension or muscle movement can slow down the averaging process.
  3. No physical response from the patient is required for this test.
