Treating Tinnitus with Sound Therapy: A Novel Approach in S-Tones
Tinnitus can be a debilitating condition that rarely has a medical or surgical treatment option. In many cases, hearing aids or sound therapy can benefit a patient. Sound therapy has existed as a treatment option for decades with a number of fully integrated approaches such as Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT) or Progressive Tinnitus Management (PTM) combining sound generation devices with appropriate counseling and education.
A new type of sound therapy is available in the SoundCure Serenade. The Serenade makes use of S-Tones, a custom fit amplitude modulated tone that is designed to work softer than traditional maskers. This webinar will review the history of S-Tones and the neural principles that researchers believe lead to their effectiveness, as well as the total approach to sound therapy and how patients can find relief through habituation.
- Describe the waveform of an S-Tone.
- Analyze the neural effect of S-Tone, specifically describing the effect of modulation rate.
- Define hypermonitoring.
