Sensorineural Hearing Loss
Sensorineural hearing loss is fairly common and might explain why you can hear a pin drop, but not be able to make out what your partner is saying. You’re born with tiny hairs called cilia in your inner ear that move when sound waves are present. Nerves translate the movement of these tiny hairs into information that goes to your brain where it gets interpreted into distinct sounds and frequencies.

The better the movements are interpreted, the more easily you’re able to hear distinctions between sounds such as “D” and “T” or hear letters like “S”, “H” and “F”. Unfortunately, the cilia are extremely delicate and can be harmed by loud noise or other trauma.

Cilia also help your brain determine how loud a sound is, where it’s coming from, and how far away it is.

The Most Common Causes of Sensorineural Hearing Loss
Sensorineural hearing loss happens when these tiny hairs are damaged. Often, this type of hearing loss is gradual, which is why many people associate it with aging. It’s thought that animals are able to regrow these hairs and regain their hearing when their cilia get damaged, but humans don’t seem to have this ability naturally.

Common causes of sensorineural hearing loss are:

Loud sounds
Head injuries or other trauma
Diseases like diabetes or autoimmune disease
High blood pressure
Some medications
How to Deal with Sensorineural Hearing Loss
While there are no current medical treatments to heal cilia, you can successfully address sensorineural hearing loss with hearing technology such as hearing aids.

Hearing Testing

We’ll evaluate your hearing to determine if you could be helped by a hearing aid, along with the type and degree of hearing loss you have and whether the loss exists in one or both ears.

If testing reveals that you do have hearing loss, we offer a wide range of solutions. It is important to remember that there is no such thing as “one size fits all.”

Already have hearing aids but aren’t hearing as well as you’d like?

Your hearing loss may have changed, or your hearing aids may simply need adjusting. Call us and make an appointment for a thorough hearing evaluation.

Hearing Aid Fitting

If hearing aids are the solution for you, we want you to get the maximum benefit from wearing them. Hearing aids work extremely well when they are fitted to your ears and adjusted for your hearing needs and preferences.

Our hearing professionals will check that your hearing aids are comfortable and program them. Then we’ll check your hearing with the hearing aids in place. Today’s hearing aids can be fine tuned to help you hear in a variety of environments, including restaurants, crowds and other difficult listening situations. Finally, we’ll show you the advanced features of your new hearing aids and how to care for them.

Tinnitus Information

Tinnitus (tin-NY-tus) is a common condition where a person experiences a ringing, rushing or buzzing in the ears. Our professionals can provide more information to help you deal with this persistent problem.

A careful review of your health history along with audiometric testing will identify the right tinnitus treatment, whether it is hearing aids, maskers, drug therapy, or allergy treatment.
