  2. 2. about tinnitusw h at i s t i n n i t u s ? Tinnitus isa widespread condition affecting up to50 million Americans—often as a resultof hearing loss after exposure to excessiveor loud noises. Sufferers perceive soundin the ear or head in the absence of correspondingexternal stimuli (i.e. a sufferer hears a ringing, buzzing,hissing, clicking, roaring or beeping although there isno external or environmental sound creating it).
  3. 3. For some, tinnitus is a distraction or an annoyance.But for others, tinnitus can be debilitating. Tinnitus is acondition that can result from a range of underlying causes,including ear infections, foreign objects or wax in the ear,or injury from loud noises. Tinnitus can also result as aside-effect of some medications (ototoxicity). Tinnitus isoften evaluated clinically from mild to severe accordingto the practical difficulties it causes, such as interferencewith sleep, quiet activities, work roles, social interactionor normal daily activities.It is estimated that 10% to 15% of adults have prolongedtinnitus requiring medical evaluation and approximately2 million Americans suffer from severe tinnitus.what causes tinnitus ?Most commonly, tinnitus results from an eardisorder in combination with a myriad ofneurological responses. A common cause oftinnitus is exposure to excessive or loud noises. Tinnitus isalso a result of hearing loss due to aging (presbycusis).causes or triggers of tinnitus include:• Hearing loss • Temporal mandibular• Excessive noise joint disorder (TMJ)• Trauma/head injury • Depression• Post traumatic stress • Anxiety disorder (PTSD) • Lyme disease• Ototoxic drugs • Thyroid disorders
  4. 4. w h at e f f e ct s d o e s i t h av e ? Chronic tinnitus can be very stressful. Psychologically, it distracts the affected individual from mental tasks and interferes with sleep. Many tinnitus sufferers have irregular sleep patterns that result in sleep deprivation. In addition, tinnitus sufferers often times are prescribed medications to cover some of the tinnitus symptoms or other health conditions that may have been impacted by the tinnitus. However, these medications typically do not treat the tinnitus itself. For many, tinnitus is more than a mild annoyance— it is a chronic and distressing condition that can lead to: • Loss of sleep • Anxiety and depression • Inability to relax • Negative impact on work, • Lack of concentration family, and social life • Sensitivity to loud sounds/hyperacusis simon tinnitus as a result of meniere’s disease.“It really began to affect my life. I was afraid that this condition would last twenty-four hours a day for the rest of my life. The treatment changed my life. Whenever I see people with tinnitus, I say, ‘give Neuromonics a try’” .

  6. 6. onics tinnitus treat how does the neuromonics t i n n i t u s t r e at m e n t w o r k ? The treatment program is designed to interact, interrupt and desensitize tinnitus disturbance for long-term benefit. The Neuromonics Tinnitus Treatment delivers a spectrally- modified neural stimulus. The stimulus is embedded within precisely-designed music and customized for each user’s profile. The music positively engages the limbic system, the part of the brain associated with emotional response, allowing for pleasant and effective delivery of the treatment. Using neuroplasticity, the Neuromonics Tinnitus Treatment stimulates the auditory pathway with the intention of promoting new neural changes that allow the brain to help filter out the tinnitus sound, thus reducing the disturbance and impact of tinnitus. neuromonics tinnitus treatment benefits • Short-term treatment process • Easy-to-use device • Non-invasive • Significant tinnitus relief • Long-term reduction of tinnitus disturbance • Improved sleep
  7. 7. ment t r e at m e n t o v e rv i e w Using a sophisticated algorithm, the Neuromonics Treatment regimen is customized and matched to each patient’s unique hearing and tinnitus profile. A compact medical device delivers treatment in what is typically a six-month period, with many reporting relief immediately. Daily treatment, for two or more hours per day, is recommended when the tinnitus is most disturbing. The Treatment can take place during regular daily activities such as reading, cooking, and computer work. During the treatment process, regular follow-up visits are scheduled with a trained healthcare professional, who also provides a complementary program of education and support. The Treatment involves a multi-stage process designed for optimal clinical results. In Stage One, a continuous broad frequency stimulus embedded within spectrally modified music provides a high degree of interaction and relief from the tinnitus. In Stage Two, intermittent interaction with tinnitus perception helps decrease the brain’s sensitivity to the tinnitus sound. h o w to s ta rt t h e n e u ro m o n i cs t i n n i t u s t r e at m e n t 1.
