Tinnitus is a condition that can cause a person to hear ringing, buzzing, or other noises in their ears. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including earwax blockage, underlying blood vessel conditions, head or neck injuries, and high blood pressure. Fortunately, there are several ways to treat tinnitus and reduce the symptoms. One of the most effective treatments for tinnitus is to remove an earwax blockage.
This can help to reduce the symptoms and treat any underlying blood vessel conditions. In some cases, medications, surgery, or hearing aids may be necessary. If the tinnitus is caused by a head or neck injury, pharmacotherapy, osteopathy, physical therapy, or chiropractic may be used to treat the underlying physical trauma and reduce the symptoms. In extreme cases, surgical practices such as neurectomy or microvascular decompression may be necessary.
Exercise is also an important way to manage stress and can help to reduce tinnitus symptoms. Increasing activity levels can help to better control blood pressure and reduce tinnitus if it is caused by high blood pressure. However, it is important to be careful when exercising in loud environments such as gyms with loud music. Finally, if tinnitus is due to an underlying health condition, treating the condition will help to stop or reduce the sounds you hear.
It is important to consult your doctor to determine the best treatment for your specific condition.
