Abstract

Pulsed Magnetic-Field Therapy: A New Concept to Treat Tinnitus?

Author(s): Elmar W.J. Weiler and Klaus Brill

Both clinical and neurophysiological data suggest that chronic tinnitus is characterized by focal brain activation. In the study reported here, pulsed magnetic-field therapy induced a highly significant increase of average total power for the delta, theta, and alpha frequency bands, predominantly within the frontal regions of the brain. We conclude that pulsed magnetic-field therapy induces changes of the electroencephalography pattern that correlated with a decrease in tinnitus symptoms.
