Much of the population experiences sound sensitivity disorders. Though these problems are common, IlluminEar Tinnitus & Audiology Center is the only Audiology practice in Austin that specializes in such disorders. An Audiology Consultation with Dr. Kristen Keener can greatly help reduce the impact of sound sensitivity.
About 17 percent of the population experiences tinnitus, and this is often coupled with misophonia or hyperacusis. Because it affects such a large percentage of the population, the need for treatment and care is consistently growing.
The field of Audiology that is specifically dedicated to treating tinnitus and sound sensitivity is still relatively new, so many people do not know there are options to treat their conditions. If you are experiencing tinnitus or other such sound sensitivity, you should be aware that there are options available to you. Scheduling an Audiology Consultation is the first step to developing a treatment plan and improving your everyday life.
Tinnitus is understood as a condition wherein an individual perceives sound that does not have an outside source. People refer to it as having a “ringing in the ears” and do not think of it as a condition that is treatable. There are many benefits to treating tinnitus, however. Proper treatment can help patients sleep better, improve focus and concentration and even reduce stress or pain.
The field of tinnitus treatment is still relatively new; Dr. Keener is one of the few Audiologists specializing in it. She has received extensive training in tinnitus treatment from the very doctor that developed the methods.
There is no cure for sound sensitivity, but the right treatment can drastically improve your quality of life if you are experiencing misophonia or hyperacusis. The team at IlluminEar Tinnitus & Audiology Center will be glad to devise a treatment plan tailored specifically to your symptoms and needs. If you think you may be struggling with sound sensitivity, do not wait to schedule an Audiology Consultation any longer. Dr. Keener has had success with even the most extreme cases and is sure to help you lessen the impact of sound sensitivity on your day-to-day life.
