Hearing Loss Affects 36 Million Adults in America
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.
18 PERCENT OF ADULTS AGE 45-64
30 PERCENT OF ADULTS 65-74
47 PERCENT OF ADULTS 75+

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.
