Our Intensive Treatment - 3 Weeks

Multimodal Tinnitus Therapy.

Since 2012, We propose a new concept called Multimodal Tinnitus Therapy.
This program was designed for our patients coming from out of town,Canada,USA, Latin countries and Europe.
The goal is to achieve in 3 weeks optimal targeted activation of the brain.

doc look at MRIWe know through brain imaging that tinnitus and hyperacusis are linked to hyperactivity and other abnormal brain patterns throughout the central auditory system.

fMRI studies show neural activity in two key regions along the auditory pathway: the inferior colliculus (IC), a major subcortical auditory center located in the midbrain, and the auditory cortex (AC), a region associated with sound perception.

Our program targets these regions using paired stimulation of auditory and somatosensory pathways.



METHOD :

1— Assessment using The QEEG/LORETA:

An Electrophysiology noninvasive imaging of electrical activity of brain function. The Qeeg in is a tool which demonstrates electrophysiologic data of brain wave activity i.e. oscillation, in multiple regions of interest, reflective of multiple brain functions in the presence of the tinnitus signal. The application of the QEEG for tinnitus is recommended to be called, the Electroencephalotinnitogram (TCG).

Clinically, the stage of the QEEG clinical application in 2014 for tinnitus is considered analogous to the EKG for cardiology in the 1930s. 

The EEG Functional brain imaging with the spectral analysis 3-D source localization of Low resolution provides:

  • An objective measure and quantification of multiple brain wave electrical frequencies of activity;
  • Clinical translation for an increased accuracy of the tinnitus diagnosis;
  • A choice for treatment of a particular central type tinnitus;
  • The identification of correlate for a predominantly central type tinnitus.

INDIVIDUALIZED TREATMENT BASED ON YOUR BRAIN MAPPING


1- Repetitive TMS (rTMS) induces alterations of neuronal activity that outlast the actual stimulation period for a considerable amount of time rTMS treatment strategy for tinnitus patients that consists of a combination of high-frequency prefrontal and low-frequency temporal rTMS.
15 sessions are included in the program.

2-
Research (N Weisz, K Dohrmann, W Schlee, T Hartmann, T Elbert) has shown relationships between tinnitus and enhanced slow wave and concomitant reduced alpha wave activity over temporal and frontal areas.
Modification of this pattern via EEG-neurofeedback can significantly reduce the matched tinnitus intensity.
15 sessions are included in the program.

3- Acoustic Therapy periphery strategy consists of desensitizing the auditory cortex by a directed training of the auditory cortex. Tinnitus is produced by the brain itself and not by an external source. The principle behind this is based on the plasticity theory of the brain that shows neurons.
re-organise themselves to succeed and accomplish neurological tasks after a loss of functionality, like an auditory loss that prevents the brain to be normally stimulated by external sounds.
This treatment will be done during and after the 3 weeks for a period of 6 months.
