LONDON, June 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
In response to demand, The Tinnitus Clinic has opened two new clinics. The new practices in Cheltenham and Edinburgh join the group's existing clinics in London, Manchester and Birmingham. A sixth clinic is due to open in Plymouth later this year. Collectively, the clinics will be able to offer treatment nationally to the growing number of tinnitus sufferers - which totals over five million. This will include the pioneering, evidence-based tinnitus treatment - Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation.
Often described as 'ringing in the ear', tinnitus affects men and women of all ages. It is linked to hearing loss, as well as exposure to loud noise, trauma and stress.
Peter Humphries, one of The Tinnitus Clinic's first patients, recently spoke out about his 20-year battle with debilitating tonal tinnitus - and explained how proven treatment - Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation - brought him sustained relief after just eight weeks.
"My tinnitus was a high pitched sound and it was continuous, like when a kettle boils. It was very annoying and it caused a lot of problems with my hearing. I was only sleeping two or three hours a night. Now it's silent - I can hear, I can concentrate, I can do anything!" commented Peter.
Using earphones and a match-box sized device, the pioneering treatment enables patients to 'unlearn' the tinnitus sound, by disrupting the hyperactive nerve cells in the brain that create the tinnitus noise. Since its introduction in Germany in 2010, it has been shown to sustainably reduce tinnitus symptoms in 7 out of 10 of patients - both during and after use - and usually within six to nine months. The treatment is currently offered exclusively by The Tinnitus Clinic.
