Hearing Health & Hearing Loss
Hearing is one of our most vital senses. Whether we consciously realize it or not, it allows us to connect with our friends, colleagues and family, it alerts us to dangers, and it delights us with the sounds of music, raindrops, and singing birds.
Our sense of hearing does all of this naturally through a sophisticated process we never even really think about unless we begin to notice that words in conversation aren't as clear, or the sound of the raindrops is so faint we barely notice it.
"Huh?" becomes a regularly repeated word, and when you're tired of repeating it, you may simply just nod and smile, not really knowing at all what was said.
When you experience a loss in hearing clarity, it can be for various reasons. While the most common is sensorineural hearing loss, people also experience conductive hearing loss.
