How Hearing Works
Understanding how the ear works and how we hear is essential in properly diagnosing a hearing problem and how to approach treating that hearing loss.
Different Types of Hearing Loss
Hearing loss may be mild, moderate, moderately-severe, severe or profound and vary across pitches so it is important to understand the many different types of hearing loss.
Hearing and Balance
Dizziness is a symptom that can be caused by problems with the external, middle or inner ear. Proper hearing care can determine the cause of dizziness and how it can be treated.
Musicians’ Hearing Loss and Prevention
Musicians, from classical orchestras to rock groups, are exposed to high decibel ranges. Musicians suffer not just from hearing loss but also a ringing in their ears and various pitch-perception problems.
Tinnitus is a very common disorder that is an abnormal perception of a sound which is unrelated to an external source of stimulation. Many report it as being a constant ringing in the ears.
