Different forms of magnetic stimulation and its effects has been tested and used on humans since 1965. rTMS has been used mostly in the treatment of psychiatric disorders (ie, depression). I looked at the research a bit on the possibilities of the use in the treatment of tinnitus and as in most research the results are stating that it could help but not necessarily for everyone. I am however not aware of anyone in our country using it.
One thing to remember with the treatment and the cause of tinnitus is firstly that tinnitus is not a disease in itself, it is a symptom of something else. The first step is to first find the cause, see if that can be treated and then decide on alternative methods of treating tinnitus.
Possible treatment for tinnitus can be medication, hearing aids, tinnitus maskers, retraining therapy, other types of counselling or therapy, etc. Treatment and the results thereof is a very individual thing
