Many people are aware that hearing aids help with hearing loss. However, most are unaware of how hearing aids help tinnitus. Hearing aids in their most basic form help tinnitus as they reduce the amount of hearing lost, this in turn decreases the amount of attention your brain pays to the tinnitus, making the effects more faded and less prominent. In most cases patients will often ask, “will hearing aids help my tinnitus?”. Again, the answer is usually yes. Hearing aids in conjunction with sound therapy can be used as an effective way to help treat tinnitus.
