How Can the Audiologist Help You?
Life is a much more beautiful thing when you can hear it, but when you are struggling with hearing loss, it can be hard to feel comfortable in a world that makes you feel isolated and alone. Enter the audiologist: the correct professional to help you figure out your hearing loss situation and make you feel more secure and confident about the treatment that they give you. Audiologists are focused on both the internal and external structures of the ear, but they also have a huge impact on the quality of life that you experience.
Audiologists are able to diagnose, assess, treat, evaluate and manage your hearing issues. They use a range of diagnostic testing methods to ascertain the severity of the hearing loss that you are experiencing, and then they will work alongside you to maintain your hearing once treatment is given. It’s not just a loss of hearing either; audiologists are also able to assist you with a build-up of earwax, issues with your balance and they can help to treat tinnitus.
Slowing down hearing loss
Hearing loss is typically gradual and most of the time; you may not realize this is what you’re experiencing until the loss has become moderate or severe. The audiology appointment that you initially have will cover your medical history and a little about your lifestyle. After all, if you spend every weekend at concerts then you are bound to notice the impact on your hearing quality. While hearing loss is not currently curable, you will be able to be treated so that you can find some comfort and lessen the impact that it has on your life.
No need to wobble
The inner ear structure is crucial to your balance, and if you have an issue in the inner ear you could find yourself becoming more and more clumsy. Dizziness and vertigo are two issues that can tell you whether you are experiencing inner ear troubles, and your audiologist will be able to test your inner ear for issues that can pinpoint why your balance is off.
Wax on, wax off
You shouldn’t use anything to remove wax yourself because it could cause a deeper impaction, leading to ear infections, drainage and pain. An audiologist can cut all of that out by ensuring that your build up of earwax is treated and removed. This can make your ear sensitive at first, but once your ears are used to the build-up being gone, you can live a much happier life of relief!
Bye, bye, buzzing
Tinnitus is not curable, it is annoying and so many more people suffer with it than you could imagine. It’s very common and most of the time, there is an underlying cause that can be treated. An audiologist can ensure that you are getting the best available help for your tinnitus, both to manage it and to learn to forget about it.
