Frequently asked questions abour hearing specialists in Karratha
How common are hearing problems?
Hearing loss is more common than you may think! There are three main types of hearing loss suffered by Karratha residents:
- Conductive (which involves your outer or middle ear)
- Sensorineural (which involves the inner ear)
- Mixed (which involves both)
Many people experience one or both of these types of hearing loss — in fact, 1 in 6 Australians suffers from some type of hearing loss. These issues can be more prominent if you have earwax buildup, if you listen to loud music regularly, or due to aging.
What are common signs and symptoms of a hearing problem?
Think you might be noticing the first signs of a hearing concern? Some of the most common signs and symptoms include:
- Difficulty hearing in loud or crowded social settings
- A hard time making out consonants
- The urge to ask people to slow down or repeat themselves
- Finding yourself turning the volume up on the television
- Discomfort in social settings or with prolonged conversations
Are all hearing issues permanent?
Unfortunately, most forms of hearing loss are permanent. That said, if your issue is due to sickness or ear wax buildup, it can be reversed. To prevent hearing problems from happening, we recommend that you:
- Protect your ears, particularly if you work or play in a loud environment
- Have your hearing regularly tested. If you find a problem, you can take the necessary steps to prevent further loss.
- Avoid risky recreational behavior like hunting or using power tools.
