Reasons For Hearing Loss

It can happen to anyone, regardless of age, gender or status. The number of reasons for hearing loss are endless. One thing many people who suffer from hearing loss have in common is that they don’t like to admit they have a problem, so they put off getting help for many years. When they finally do seek help their hearing has deteriorated further. Don’t wait, call us today! Hearing instruments can improve 90-95 percent of hearing loss cases. Sadly, only one in five people who could benefit from hearing aids actually wear them. We want to change this statistic. Because everyone deserves to hear.

Common Triggers:

  • Natural Aging
    As you grow older, your inner ear changes. These changes can cause hearing loss.


  • Exposure to loud noises
    Sounds played at a harmful volume can damage hearing permanently.


  • Medications
    Certain medications are ototoxic and can permanently hurt your hearing.


  • Infections
    Chronic ear infections or serious illnesses can both lead to hearing loss.


  • Head or ear trauma
    A traumatic injury outside the ear can affect the inside, too.


  • Congenital or hereditary factors
    Your genes can factor into whether or not you’ll lose your hearing.


  • Disease
    Conditions like Meniere’s Disease can cause hearing loss.
