Free Acoustic Coordinated Modulation Reset Therapy

I’m not sure I’m sold on the actual efficacy of this, but here’s a description:
One recent development in this area is a therapy called Acoustic Coordinated RESET (CR) Neuromodulation, from the German company ANM. This therapy specifically targets a mechanism of tinnitus which is thought to involve abnormal levels of synchronous activity in the hearing brain, where large populations of nerve cells repeatedly and spontaneously fire at the same time. The therapy is currently being marketed by the private healthcare sector in Germany and was recently made available in the UK by The Tinnitus Clinic, London.

The CR Neuromodulator … Continue Reading

Tinnitus Promising Treatment

Tinnitus is the medical name of the mysterious noise millions of people have suffered from for years.

Other contributing factors may be working or living in a noisy environment, habitual tooth and jaw clenching, and heart problems. Older people who spent years listening to loud music, attended concerts, or served in a military combat … Continue Reading

What are the most common tinnitus frequencies?

I’ve been reading the literature on tinnitus for several years, and I have yet to come across a paper that provided data on what the distribution of tinnitus frequencies was among people who have tinnitus. Obviously there’s not a lot of money available to ask a question like this (since there’s no drug or treatment available). So I spoke to our CTO, Adrian Green, and we decided to mine the AudioNotch tinnitus treatment database to see if we could get an estimate of this data.

When people sign up for AudioNotch, their sound therapy is customized for their unique tinnitus frequency. … Continue Reading

Tinnitus Developments

Tinnitus is a hearing condition that is often referred to as a “ringing in the ears.” Though the condition is thought to affect about 15% of the general population, only a very small percentage of people suffer from serious tinnitus. For those unlucky people who experience ongoing tinnitus symptoms, however, the condition can be very debilitating and lead to depression, irritability, frustration and fatigue.

Obviously, living with an ongoing static sound reverberating inside one’s head is difficult at best, so it’s important for tinnitus sufferers to seek help for their condition. What help is available for tinnitus sufferers? Let’s have a … Continue Reading

Tinnitus curable?

Is tinnitus curable?

While there are many purported treatments for tinnitus, a treatment is NOT the same thing as a cure. The current literature shows that no specific treatment is effective enough to be classified as a cure – and frankly, any time you see a tinnitus treatment marketing itself in such a manner, you need to watch out – it’s highly likely that you’re dealing with a scam of some sort.

The term “cure” is a hyperbolic term to describe anything available right now. Notched Sound Therapy, at best, will significantly lower the volume of your tinnitus tone, but it will NOT make it … Continue Reading
