October Is National Audiology Awareness and Protect Your Hearing Month
In response to the growing number of Americans suffering from hearing loss, the Atlanta Hearing Institute is proud to support National Audiology Awareness Month this October.
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) October 25, 2013
Over 36 million American adults have some degree of hearing loss. Hearing loss can be caused by exposure to loud noises, ear infections, trauma, or ear disease, illness, certain medications, and deterioration due to the normal aging process. Most individuals do not recognize the signs or symptoms of a hearing loss. Taking time to see the Doctors of Audiology at Atlanta Hearing Institute for regular hearing screenings and knowing the signs of hearing loss can protect your hearing.
“Hearing loss not only affects individual’s ability to enjoy life, but so many families are affected when their loved ones cannot hear. Many of our patients report that their spouses and children are the first to recognize that their hearing has changed. Our patients always emphasize how much they miss interacting with the people that they love dearly.” – Anesheia Prince, Audiologist at the Atlanta Hearing Institute
Some signs of hearing loss are: a decrease in the ability to understand speech either over time or suddenly, trouble hearing conversations in a noisy environment, difficulty or inability to hear people talking to you without looking at them, and/or a constant pain or ringing in your ears.
For patients with tinnitus or ringing in the ears, a hearing test can help explain why the sound is present and what can be done to help alleviate daily symptoms. The Atlanta hearing doctors specialize in tinnitus management, protecting and bringing awareness to hearing loss. They encourage their patients to protect their hearing by wearing hearing protection when around loud sounds for 30 minutes or more. Turning down the volume when listening to the radio, TV, MP3 player, or anything through ear buds and headphones. They provide custom ear plugs and custom iPod plugs.
