The new therapeutic approach
Tinnitracks lets you treat your tinnitus with your own music. The modified tracks are used for neurophysiologic treatment. How can your music be used as tinnitus therapy?
The cause of tinnitus
Abnormal hyperactivity of nerve cells in the brain’s auditory cortex that directly correlates with the perceived loudness of the tinnitus sound is found in patients with subjective tinnitus. The greater the activity in these cells, the louder the tinnitus. 1 2 10
Tinnitus is often triggered by hearing loss such as sudden sensorineural hearing loss or noise-induced hearing loss. This type of hearing loss not only means a reduced ability to hear sounds in the frequency ranges in which damage has occurred, but also causes a reduced flow of information to the brain's auditory center. 14 15 16
This change in input can cause the brain to shift its healthy balance between excitatory and inhibitory nerve signals. This can lead to overactivity in certain nerve cells, which manifests itself as tinnitus.
