Have you been diagnosed with tinnitus?
Studies have shown that ear-level sound generators can provide relief and improvement for tinnitus for people with normal hearing. These devices play soothing sounds to increase relaxation, improve sleep and distract from tinnitus to reduce its impact. Special sounds called fractal tones can also facilitate habituation to tinnitus so it becomes less noticeable over time.
San Francisco Audiology is now offering a Tinnitus Relief Program for people with normal hearing and bothersome tinnitus. Through the program, people can borrow ear-level sound generators for up to six months to help with their tinnitus and may choose to keep them afterward if still needed. Multiple follow-up visits are included. For more information, call our front desk at (415) 362-2901 and ask about the new Tinnitus Relief Program.
Have you fallen within the past 12 months?
Have you been worried or afraid that you might fall?
If so, you are not alone. More than one in three people over the age of 65 fall each year. However, falling does not have to be a normal part of aging and can be easily addressed in most cases. Many factors contribute to falling or fear of falling. Some examples include hearing, vision, activity levels, medication interactions and safety in the home.
San Francisco Audiology is proud to be an integral part of a multidisciplinary team focusing on fall prevention. If you answered yes to either of the two questions above regarding falls, please call us at (415) 362-2901 to learn more. Let us help you continue your daily activities safely and without limitations!
