Neurofeedback Therapy is an effective treatment for tinnitus.

Tinnitus, a Latin word meaning “tinkling or ringing like a bell,” is a condition characterized by noises or ringing in the ears when no actual external sound exists. A very common disorder, it is estimated that tinnitus affects about 1 in 5 people or roughly 50 million Americans. The severity of the ringing sound varies greatly in patients and can range from a dull or quiet background sound to levels that are louder than external sounds and cause problems with hearing.

Studies have shown that patients suffering from tinnitus can experience abnormal brainwave activity spread across many areas of the brain. By treating the affected areas with neurofeedback, the brain slowly and naturally returns to its normal and regular state.

Case studies show that neurofeedback therapy can help patients improve the symptoms of tinnitus, and sometimes eliminate them entirely.

 

65% of patients that use neurofeedback to treat their tinnitus report improved symptoms.

Some of the symptoms neurofeedback can improve include:

  • Hearing loss
  • Irritability
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Vertigo

Neurofeedback can treat tinnitus associated with:

  • Inner ear cell damage
  • Head and ear injuries
  • Age-related hearing loss
  • Exposure to loud noises

Neurofeedback for Tinnitus Treatment - Review and Current Concepts
View Study
“An effective treatment to completely alleviate chronic tinnitus symptoms has not yet been discovered.
However, recent developments suggest that neurofeedback (NFB), a method already popular in the treatment of
other psychological and neurological disorders, may provide a suitable alternative. NFB is a non-invasive
method generally based on electrophysiological recordings and visualizing of certain aspects of brain activity as
positive or negative feedback that enables patients to voluntarily control their brain activity and thus triggers
them to unlearn typical neural activity patterns related to tinnitus.”
“To date, neurofeedback as well as electrophysiological tinnitus studies lack general guidelines that are crucial
to produce more comparable and consistent results. Even though neurofeedback has already shown promising
results for chronic tinnitus treatment, further research is needed in order to develop more sophisticated protocols
that are able to tackle the individual needs of tinnitus patients more specifically.”

 

Neurofeedback for treating tinnitus
View Study
“Many individuals with tinnitus have abnormal oscillatory brain activity. Led by this finding, we have
developed a way to normalize such pathological activity by neurofeedback techniques (Weisz et al. (2005).
PLoS Med., 2: e153). This is achieved mainly through enhancement of tau activity, i.e., oscillatory activity
produced in perisylvian regions within the alpha frequency range (8-12 Hz) and concomitant reduction in delta
power range (0.5-4 Hz). This activity is recorded from electrodes placed on the frontal scalp.”
“We have found that modification of the tau-to- delta ratio significantly reduces tinnitus intensity. Participants
who successfully modified their oscillatory pattern profited from the treatment to the extent that the tinnitus
sensation became completely abolished. Overall, this neurofeedback training was significantly superior in
reducing tinnitus-related distress than frequency discrimination training.”
