For many people, hearing loss treatment isn’t something they consider until they are unable to hear loud word exchanges. It is perceived unnecessary until those individuals are being kept out of the conversational loop due to their inability to hear. There is, however, every reason to believe that even mild hearing loss deserves some form of treatment. Recent research has shown that whispers can have a relaxing effect. The fact is, even a missed whisper can have a detrimental effect on a person’s quality of life. From a physiological standpoint, whispers induce feelings of euphoria and relaxation because they stimulate the release of the hormone oxytocin, which is known to create feelings of trust and closeness with others. So, even missed whispers are good reason to have your hearing checked.
Our ears pick up sound and transmit those signals to the brain. The longer a person goes without getting hearing assistance, the harder it is to adapt to hearing instruments of any kind. Modern digital hearing aids are programmed to take into account the hearing needs of the individual. To schedule a hearing exam, please call EAR & HEARING CLINIC.
