MeRT for Tinnitus

Magnetic e-Resonance Therapy is a form of neuromodulation. That literally means to modulate—or normalize—nerve activity. MeRT therapy delivers targeted treatment to your brain, typically to the prefrontal cortex. It’s a non-invasive, FDA-approved form of treatment for depression. Recent research has found it to be beneficial for tinnitus patients as well.

The American Tinnitus Association (ATA) describes tinnitus as “the perception of sound when no actual external noise is present.” You can experience it in a number of ways:

  • Buzzing
  • Ringing
  • Hissing
  • Whistling
  • Swooshing
  • Clicking

The exact definition of tinnitus varies with each individual, as does the severity. Tinnitus can be an acute, or temporary, condition that may have little impact on your everyday life. But for about 20 million people, tinnitus is chronic and burdensome. Tinnitus can be further broken down into two main categories.

Subjective Tinnitus

Subjective tinnitus is defined by noises that are only perceivable to the individual. This is most often caused by hearing loss or neurological dysfunction. More than 99% of reported tinnitus is considered subjective.

Objective Tinnitus

It’s rare, but you might have objective tinnitus. It occurs when you have head or ear noises that are detectable to both you and other people. Usually, these noises happen because of abnormal body systems, like increased blood flow or a particular musculoskeletal movement.

Sometimes tinnitus is because of a physical disorder, like TMJ. This is called ‘peripheral’ because it affects the periphery of your nervous system.
