What is Misophonia?
Misophonia literally translates to ‘hatred of sounds.’ However, this phrase does not substantiate the severity and diagnosis of the condition. If you have misophonia, everyday sounds that you should be able to ignore can trigger intense negative reactions from you. You may experience a range of symptoms, including anxiety, anger, and even physical pain. Chances are that specific sounds can trigger emotions such as anger or cause you to avoid situations that may have those sounds.
Our Misophonia Treatment Services
At Memorial Hearing, we offer a range of services to help our patients manage their misophonia symptoms. Our services include:
Diagnostic Testing and Assessment
Our licensed audiologists and other healthcare professionals provide comprehensive diagnostic testing and assessment to diagnose misophonia accurately. We use various tests and assessments to evaluate each patient’s symptoms and identify trigger sounds.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Referral
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based treatment approach that has been shown to be effective in managing misophonia symptoms. We have relationships with licensed therapists whom specialize in providing CBT to patients with misophonia. This therapy approach focuses on helping patients change their thoughts and behaviors related to trigger sounds, and develop coping strategies to manage their emotional and physiological responses.
Desensitization is an important component of misophonia treatment. We use filtered earplugs to help patients habituate to trigger sounds and reduce their emotional and physiological responses.
At Memorial Hearing, we provide a personalized treatment plan for each patient, which may include one or more of the above services. Our goal is to help our patients manage their misophonia symptoms effectively and improve their quality of life.
