THE IMPORTANCE OF HEARING HEALTH

Hearing is extremely important to our daily lives, whether that’s work, talking with friends, or simply walking down the street. While there is no clinical way to improve your hearing, there are many ways to protect or maintain your hearing health. 

That starts with understanding how the ear works and what hearing loss is.

HOW WE HEAR

Hearing loss starts when there is an issue with noise transmitting from the environment, through the ear where it can be sent to the brain.

WHAT IS TINNITUS?

Tinnitus is the perception of sound when there is nothing physically causing any noise. Some describe it as a ringing or buzzing in their ears.

Tinnitus is a symptom and not a disease, in many cases related to a hearing loss, and can be either well tolerated or a very unsettling and stressful condition to an individual.
