Hearing Health Studies

     Hearing loss is a permanent, progressive and irreversible condition. The use of hearing instruments can bring a person back to the normal range depending on test results. It’s recommended to correct your hearing loss with the use of hearing aids sooner rather than later in order to maintain more speech understanding longer. We will perform a series of tests to see if the solution is hearing aids or a referral to another medical professional.
     The most confusing part of hearing loss is it is frequency specific. The most common type of hearing loss is high-frequency hearing loss. The lower/deeper tones are more in the normal range than the higher/sharper ones. This is the reason people with hearing loss think others are mumbling because they need the sharpness of the higher tones back. This is also the reason people can hear in quiet situations but lose speech understanding in busier situations.  Although you think you may be getting along find recent Johns Hopkins Studies show it may be more beneficial to get hearing aids sooner than you realize.

Johns Hopkins studies show that maintaining your hearing will also help with mental clarity as well as sense of balance.

Better Balance

"People with a 25-decibel hearing loss, classified as mild, were nearly three times more likely to have a history of falling. Every additional 10-decibels of hearing loss increased the chances of falling by 1.4 fold."


Preventative Care is a huge reason to fix your hearing loss sooner rather than later.
