Hearing loss affects over 48 million Americans. Many people do not treat their hearing loss because they don’t want to be seen as old or they are simply concerned about the cost. At The Hearing Clinic, we believe everyone deserves better hearing. That’s why we educate our patients on the effects of hearing loss and offer affordable hearing solutions.
Hearing loss not only affects your ears, but your brain as well. When you can’t hear, you miss out on certain sounds. Overtime our brains forget those sounds and stop processing them. The lack of stimulation to the brain from not hearing can lead to cognitive decline such as Dementia and Alzheimer’s. The greater the hearing loss, the higher the risk. In order to keep your brain healthy and active, it is important to treat any signs of hearing loss as soon as possible. Wearing hearing aids helps your brain receive the proper stimulation it needs to stay healthy.
Don’t let hearing loss affect your brain’s health. Reconnect with your world today by making an appointment.
Hearing loss can be due to many factors. Oftentimes, hearing loss is a result of the aging process and noise exposure throughout the years. However, other factors such as ear infections, damage to the hearing nerve or cochlea, exposure to loud noise and toxic medications can also damage your hearing. Regardless of what caused your hearing loss it is important to have your hearing evaluated as soon as possible. Make an appointment with us today so we can diagnose your hearing loss and properly manage it with hearing aids.
Hearing loss often occurs gradually, so you might not even notice you are missing certain sounds or frequencies.
