Are relaxation strategies clinically and cost effective for the management of tinnitus for children, young people and adults?
- Any explanatory notes
The use of relaxation strategies is widespread in tinnitus management. Practice is variable with many services simply recommending or signposting rather than actually providing
instructions in relaxation. This is in the face of mixed evidence regarding the benefits of relaxation in tinnitus management; overall the evidence is not favourable but there are
methodological weaknesses in some studies. A carefully controlled study into the benefits of relaxation will therefore add a meaningful contribution to the evidence base.
