Hearing loss in America, in many cases, happens gradually over time. Often hearing loss happens so gradually that many people who are living with untreated hearing loss don’t know they are living with hearing loss. Hearing loss is unique for every person who experiences it. But no matter the severity or duration of hearing loss, there are signs.

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.

All kinds of things today produce noises that impact our hearing health. Loud noises happen every day and many of us just don’t notice. From cars and highways to crowded streets and constant background noise, our hearing allows us to amerce in our environment. As functioning humans working the daily grind, of course there will be increased noises. We’ve accepted these sounds as part of our everyday living. We do live in the age of ever-changing technology after all, but how much is too much noise for our own hearing health?

We used to believe hearing loss was a normal part of the aging process. Today we know hearing actually happens in the brain and our ears function more like funnels for sound. So, in simple and understandable terms, sounds around us are detected by our outer ear, the funnel.  Sound waves then travel from the outer ear, through to the middle ear. The ear drum then takes these sounds waves, amplifies them and turns them into vibrations. As the trickle effect continues, the vibrations travel to the inner ear. Within the inner ear there are tiny inner ear hair cells. These cells translate the vibrations into neural signals, which are then sent to the brain. The brain then interprets the neural signals it recognizes and we understand what we are hearing.
