What is a Tinnitus Consultation?
During your tinnitus consultation you’ll receive a free, full hearing assessment to find out what’s going on with your ears and determine any hearing loss which might be caused by your tinnitus.
We’ll go through a thorough medical history to determine if there is anything that may have been a trigger or is exacerbating the tinnitus.
We will check the health of the ears to rule out if wax or infections are the cause. We will perform tests to assess the function and health of each ear, including a middle ear pressure check that looks for congestion or blockages. We’ll also complete a thorough hearing test to determine if there is any underlying hearing loss.
Your expert audiologist will then be able to give you personalised advice on which tinnitus treatments would be beneficial for you and your ears. This can include various therapies to help you manage the condition, hearing aids, as well as ear wax removal if that is what is causing your problems.
