A SHORT VIDEO ON HEARING LOSS

Hearing loss is a very common health issue, with age related hearing loss being the most common.

You are not alone.

The main causes of hearing loss are:

-Aging
-Exposure to loud noises
-Infections
-Injuries to head or ears
-Birth Defects or genetics
-Reactions to drugs or cancer treatments

There are two types of hearing loss:

-Conductive and

Conductive hearing loss is due to problems with the outer or middle ear. It is often treatable through medical or surgical methods.

Sensorineural hearing loss is the most common and is cased by a problem with inner ear or hearing nerve. It is usually permanent and can be helped with hearing aids.
