Sudden Hearing Loss
Every effort has been made to ensure that the information provided in this site is accurate. It is not the intention to mislead or misinform anyone.
(2017) Treatment of sudden hearing loss using electro-
‘A pediatric case (Age 9) of sudden sensorineural hearing loss accompanied by otalgia and blocked ear sensation.
Results: He firstly failed with conventional treatment but later his hearing symptoms were improved with our electroacupuncture therapy according to pure tone audiometry findings and clinical responses.
Conclusions: It may be worth trying in patients with sudden neurosensory deafness, who do not respond to routine medical treatment. In line with previous studies, the current report indicates that future observational studies or even clinical trials are needed to prove the efficacy of acupuncture on hearing loss and the accompanying symptoms.’
The case report does not exactly specify the frequency of treatments (weekly, twice weekly, daily???) It infers ‘Acupuncture treatments were usually scheduled about two times a week and allowed to be increased to three times a week or decreased to once a week in frequency when clinically suggested as necessary.’
