New research finds Relief Against Tinnitus

Tinnitus has been one of the strangest health conditions, that many doctors have issues understanding and treating, but not anymore as new research as showed hope for Tinnitus relief.

Tinnitus is an annoying condition when a person may experience unexpected ringing in the ears, especially when sleeping. This is a condition that can happen anywhere and at any time.

Once started, Tinnitus can mean unexpected turn within minutes, and one might be writhing in bed in pain. In fact, experts are not even sure why this happens and the reason behind this sudden ringing sound.


Now researchers have discovered that dispatching plain electromagnetic pulses may have just the effect that’s need, and this process of offering Tinnitus relief is called transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).

Experts now believe that this transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) can be one of the options for patients, and it is being talked that the condition is more likely to happen to those having exposure to noise or issues of hearing loss.

In short, the condition is being associated to the damage caused by the auditory system.

Robert Folmer, of Oregon Health and Science University and Portland Veterans Affairs Medical Center, suggests that the magnetic field that goes into the scalp and skull interacts with brain issue in TMS.

“When we deliver one pulse per second of TMS, that low rate of TMS stimulation can suppress neural activity in that region,” he added.

The study also showed that 56% of all participants got better with ten sessions of TMS while only 22% had improved with control treatment and 10 sessions.
