What is Tinnitus?

It's common

Statistics show that one in five people suffer from tinnitus. It can affect anyone, although certain groups are more susceptible than others, including:

  • Musicians

  • Construction Workers

It's personal

The variety of sounds and noises that people perceive are as widespread as the condition and may include:

  • humming

  • roaring

  • whooshing

  • ringing

  • buzzing

  • whistling

It has many causes

Whether the sound is perceived in the left ear, right ear, or both ears, your tinnitus may be due to:

  • exposure to loud noise

  • jaw, or TMJ, conditions,

  • cardiovascular disease

  • earwax buildup

  • hearing loss

  • certain medications

  • head or neck injuries

How does Tinnitus happen?

The Hearing Brain – A Sensory Path

  • The ear collects mechanical (sound) energy

  • Highly sensitive receptors convert mechanical energy to electrical energy

  • Electrical energy (signals) are sent to communicate to the brain


Tinnitus = A Misprocessing of Signals

A (normally) benign sound is perceived as a threat, triggering the “fight or flight” response to alert the body of danger.
