What is Ear Flushing?

Ear flushing, also known as ear irrigation, is a simple and fast medical procedure involving using a liquid solution to clean the ear canal. It is safer than traditional syringing, due to being much less likely to trigger other conditions such as inflammation or infection, and avoids the risk of a perforated eardrum that can come with syringing.

What Is Tinnitus?

Commonly described as a ringing sound in the ears, tinnitus is symptomatic of a neurological disorder for which no definitive cause has been discovered. Without a specific cause, the condition cannot be cured, but there are proven management techniques that can limit its effect on the individual’s quality of life.
