NOISE SENSITIVITY THERAPY (Hyperacusis)
Road traffic, barking, door- or church bells - these are only a few sounds that accompany us every day. For tinnitus-affected with increased sensitivity to noise, however, these sounds are not only distracting, but almost unbearable. They suffer from a morbid sensitivity to normal volume sounds of the environment.
This illness is called hyperacusis. In order to tackle the causes of hypersensitivity to everyday sounds, a so-called hyperacusis training with a noise generator is administered. Under this treatment the patient learns to deal with the environmental sounds, step by step and in a playful way. A relaxed attitude toward sounds and noises is regained and the person affected regains a vast amount of quality of life.
