Generally hearing loss can be categorized as either sensorineural, conductive, or a mixture of the two. Treatment options vary depending on an individuals type and degree of hearing loss.
Conductive hearing loss is caused by a condition or disease that blocks or impedes the movement of sound waves throughout the outer or middle ear resulting in a reduction in loudness or clarity of sound that reaches the inner ear. The treatment for conductive loss may include medical or surgical intervention. Our hearing professionals have been trained to make the appropriate medical referral when appropriate.
Sensorineural hearing loss is the result of damage to the neurons within the inner ear or auditory nerve dysfunction. Those with sensorineural hearing loss experience reduced intensity (loudness) of certain frequencies, often the frequencies associated with speech. Sensorineural hearing loss is typically irreversible and permanent and treated with hearing aids.
It takes most people several years to notice the gradual onset of hearing loss. So if you are starting to have problems hearing certain voices, if you find yourself asking people to repeat themselves, if others seem to mumble, or if you need to turn the TV volume up to a level uncomfortable for others to enjoy – these are signs that it’s time to test your hearing.
Hearing loss can negatively affect one’s emotional and social well being, which can lead to depression, isolation from others, strained relationships, and insecurity.
A hearing test is simple for the patient and the cost is covered by almost all medical insurances, including Medicare.
