Ocean Sound – Relaxing or Annoying?

Posted by on 30 August 2017

It depends on where you hear it. If it’s inside your ears or head it can be annoying. Tinnitus help is available

Tinnitus is a symptom, not a disease. It can be described as ringing, whistling, buzzing or like a roaring ocean. It may be soft or loud; composed of a single sound or multiple components; it may be continuous or intermittent. Current research now considers tinnitus to be a disorder involving the brain. Hearing loss is often a prerequisite for tinnitus. It is thought that hearing loss, through lack of auditory stimulation, causes an increase in neural activity in the brain, which is perceived as the tinnitus sound. One of the goals of tinnitus treatments is to normalise this hyperactivity.

At Melbourne Audiology Centre, our goal is to help you understand and gain control of your tinnitus, rather than the tinnitus controlling you. There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ tinnitus treatment approach and no ‘cure’ yet for tinnitus. However there are safe, effective and non-invasive treatments and management strategies for tinnitus that includes; sound therapy, counselling, and combined hearing aid/tinnitus devices for those who also have a hearing loss.

For anyone concerned about tinnitus, the best place to start is by booking a tinnitus appointment at Melbourne Audiology Centre.

Potatoes and Hearing Aids

Posted by on 25 August 2017

Dr Alcock presented on ‘the potato strategy – how to change a social norm’.  He introduced the topic by speaking about potatoes.  We didn’t know that when first introduced, potatoes were considered pig food and not something that should be eaten.  However, over time the social norms changed, the benefits of potatoes as a food source were realised and potatoes today are not only a food staple they are preferred food source – think chips, roasted with rosemary etc.

Hearing Is Precious And Fragile.

Posted by on 24 August 2017

During Hearing Awareness Week (HAW) 20-26 August 2017, we would like to alert people to the importance of protecting your hearing when you are in loud noise.  How loud is too loud?
The effect of noise on hearing is cumulative and is based on how often you are in noise, the time spent in noise and how loud it is. In the workplace, employers must ensure that workers are not exposed to more than 85dB over 8-hour shift (OH&S regulations). The time that can be spent in noise decreases as the loudness of the noise increases.
On the HAW website you can check to see if a particular noise is too loud and how long you can safely listen to it for.
