New Advance Research on Tinnitus
Research on tinnitus have provided important findings on tinnitus last year.
It has discovered that the risk of suffering from tinnitus or tinnitus is greater under stress. Another study shows that tinnitus own brain produces it to compensate hearing loss. In terms of treatments, therapy that is based on the acceptance and Mindfulness helps the patient to live with tinnitus. It has been also shown that therapy via the internet is almost as effective as face-to-face group therapy. Likewise, coordinated acoustic restart therapy helps to reduce the intensity and discomfort of tinnitus.
The incidence of tinnitus is duplicated under stress
Experts believe that there is a direct relationship between tinnitus and stress. The incidence of tinnitus cases doubled in people suffering from stress, according to a study by the Karolinska Institute in Sweden.
"We found that tinnitus affected 2.5 times more people who were in protracted situations of stress," explains Professor Barberà Conlon, Chief of the study researcher.
More than a hearing problem
Researchers have discovered that the brain is responsible for the beep of ears that produces tinnitus, as a strategy to compensate for hearing loss with tinnitus miracle.
According to a study in the Center doctor of Georgetown University, in the United States, tinnitus does not occur only by an Occlusive effect or damage in the ear, but that is the failed result of own brain by bouncing back.
Choose the appropriate therapy
According to a thesis in psychology presented Sweden's doctors, acceptance and Mindfulness-based therapy can be used to learn how to live with tinnitus. This technique seeks to generate a new attitude towards tinnitus, to avoid the symptoms to consume the life of the patient. This method is called acceptance and commitment therapy.
Therapy through the internet
Researchers at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Germany and the University of Linköping in Sweden was treated to a group of patients with tinnitus moderate to severe with different types of therapies, for a period of ten weeks. The results of the study have shown that online therapy is just as effective as face-to-face group therapy.
To compare the results with the control group, whose subjects only participated in an online forum, was that patients who continued therapy via the internet or participated in group therapy could better control the symptoms of the annoying sound of tinnitus that perceive in their ears.
Coordinated acoustic restart therapy
A clinical trial has shown that a therapy called neuromodulation of coordinated sound reset (Acoustic Coordinated Reset, in English), reduces the intensity and discomfort that produces tinnitus in seven of every ten patients. This study compared the results of therapy of acoustic restart coordinated with a placebo treatment of control in 63 patients with tinnitus of long duration.
In the clinical trial, patients had to carry a special headset for several hours a day. Headphones emitted a series of tones that are adjusted according to the characteristic of the tinnitus patient frequency. Thus, it was intended to interrupt the rhythmic patterns of the noise of tinnitus causing the cells in the auditory nerve in the brain.
Four in ten are unaware of what is tinnitus
Finally, a study conducted by the British organization of hearing impaired "Action on Hearing loss" (action to the hearing loss), reveals that 39% of respondents were unaware of what it was tinnitus or tinnitus, and 22% thought even that was to have allergy to metal.
