    Podcast 16: Considering the Psychophysiological Elements of Tinnitus

    Podcast 16: Considering the Psychophysiological Elements of Tinnitus

    SUBJECT MATTER EXPERT: Christopher Spankovich, PhD, MPH TOPIC: Dr. Christopher Spankovich discusses how tinnitus interventions should address both the psychological and physiological impact of tinnitus on patients. He explores how nutrition, emotional health, and physical health all play a role in mitigating the negative impact of tinnitus. He also discusses the importance of helping patients understand the power of sound to elicit positive or negative emotions, aside from the tinnitus sound, in order to facilitate habituation. Noting that not all patients believe or accept the psychological component of tinnitus, Dr. Spankovich encourages providers to assess what best fits the needs of individual patients, taking into consideration their specific challenges, what the patient believes, and what he/she is likely to respond to, rather than focusing on a one-size-fits-all approach.     If you are having problems streaming the media directly from our site, try using Chrome browser or read our listening instructions.

    Podcast 13: Understanding Preferences for Loud Music

    Podcast 13: Understanding Preferences for Loud Music

    SUBJECT MATTER EXPERT: Elizabeth Beach, PhD TOPIC: Dr. Elizabeth Beach discusses large-scale research that reveals why clubs, bar, and music venues are playing music at higher volumes than what most people prefer. And while it might seem easy to raise awareness that results in quieter recreational music venues, Beach says it’s complicated, so safe listening initiatives require support at various levels to achieve change. As head of the Behavioral Sciences Department at the National Acoustics Laboratory in Australia, she studies recreational noise in the music and entertainment industry, strategies for encouraging safe listening for staff and patrons, and how to motivate young adults to protect their hearing.   If you are having problems streaming the media directly from our site, try using Chrome browser or read our listening instructions.

With practice, Gans contends that bothersome tinnitus can be addressed effectively, opening the door to a renewed sense of hope and empowerment.

By empowering patients in conversations that weigh the pros and cons of each care option based on what’s most practical for the patient, Pryce believes patients are more likely to commit to a treatment plan that works.       If you are having problems streaming the media directly from our site, try using Chrome browser or read our listening instructions.
