Hearing aids are certainly small in size, but they pack a powerful punch, until a hearing aid needs repair. These small devices can seem easy to fix, but with their plethora of technology and small size, fixing hearing aids can be complicated and best left to the professionals. What we are going to look at today is, how you can tell if you need your hearing aids repaired.

For people living with untreated hearing loss, it can already feel isolating in ‘regular’ daily life without the addition of social isolation. This is especially true for people aged 65+ who have retired and are living with moderate to severe untreated hearing loss.

Tinnitus is a ringing or buzzing sound some people experience in their ears. Tinnitus severity can come and go and last for different amounts of time. People sometimes experience tinnitus when they are living with a high frequency hearing loss. Tinnitus can usually be managed with an appropriate hearing aid.

Today, with hearing loss on the rise in both younger people and aging adults, it’s time for us as a society to recognize the impact of untreated hearing loss. A variety of scientific studies have been performed over the past decade and longer, which produced results proving that hearing aids keep your brain healthy and may protect against cognitive decline.

We all know physical activity keeps your body healthy. So, it’s no surprise that physical activity and hearing health are related to each other as well. Your hearing health is related to many parts of your overall healthcare. As hearing loss professionals, we have come to realize that hearing loss is a major health issue, one that can lead to an array of various other health issues. And, in the new year, our media is overflowing with messages pushing us to get healthier and add exercise to our daily schedules.

It’s finally 2020, which is not only a new year, but a new decade! If you’re like most people across the globe, you probably had some version of a new year’s resolution. If you made a commitment to get healthy in the new year, consider including your hearing health within that resolution. Of course, resolutions only work when we are emotionally invested and committed to them.

For you to be healthy this year, your hearing health should absolutely be a part of your overall plan. Why? Well, aside from your hearing health being one of your primary five senses, your hearing health is very much connected to your long-term brain health as well.

Did you know you have a set of sensory hair cells in your inner ear that are responsible for how you hear? The hair cells (Also known as stereocilia) in the inner ear receive sound vibrations from these hair cells, which are rolled up and live inside the cochlea. Unlike the hair on your head, these hair cells do not grow back once they are damaged or die. What many of us don’t realize is that there is a great deal of things that happen that can permanently damage these hair cells, which are actually very delicate.
