Enjoying Your Sense of Hearing

June 24 marks a day known as Celebrate the Senses Day. The goal is to push people to enjoy life immensely through all five senses and use them for things beyond our everyday routines. In this day in age, it seems that the world works through visual images and over-relies on our vision. We are glued to the television, iPads, DVD players, or tablets and take for granted our other senses that also help us to enjoy life. The five senses certainly work together to provide joy and entertainment to our life, allowing us to find sights, sounds, tastes, touches, or smells either pleasing or displeasing. Hearing, however, is also a vital sense which we encourage you to celebrate. This day is also perfect to determine whether or not you are suffering from hearing loss and to learn about our products and solutions to improve your sense of hearing once again. Life is full of sounds that no one deserves to miss because they fail to get the right assistance from our experienced audiologists.

Your sense of hearing is vital to quality of life for many reasons. Most people will tell you that your hearing is mainly important only for the pleasures in life – music or speech. But an article from newscientist.com puts this assumption into perspective when they note the other important roles our hearing plays in life. For example, they mentioned listening to a faucet handle squeak noting that it needs some work, missing sounds of an alarm, or the sounds of a car driving down the road. Life is much more than what most of us think. For those folks suffering from hearing loss, their quality of life becomes quickly tested. According to medical experts, about 17 percent of adults in the United States, some 36 million, report some degree of hearing loss. Hearing loss is a major public health issue that is the third most common physical condition after arthritis and heart disease. Making the decision to battle hearing loss may seem hard, but our hearing doctors make it easy to move forward with.

Hearing enhances our life. It allows us to listen, connect, communicate, work, relax, enjoy, and participate fully in the life around us. Our audiologists are prepared to assist those dealing with hearing loss through the use of hearing aids, assistive listening devices, aural rehabilitation, ear wax removal and so much more. The latest advances in hearing technology are utilized and chosen for both the degree of hearing loss and your lifestyle. Contact our offices before you have to live any more days struggling with hearing the world around you and start enjoying life to the fullest through your sense of hearing.
