Hearing Loss

Prevention

Did you know that noise induced hearing loss is irreversible? But also preventable?

We can get noise related damage from a variety of activities, such as:
  • listening to loud music

  • concerts

  • sporting events

  • working in loud factories

  • construction

  • working with heavy equipment

  • riding motor bikes

  • driving louder cars (yes, we are including about our Italian
    and German toys #Lamborghini #Ferrari #Porche #BMW

  • loud pubs/bars/restaurants/clubs

  • lawn mowers

  • group workouts with loud music

  Just to name a few.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
So what can you do?

We don't want you to eliminate these activities, but rather protect your hearing from being damaged due to noise by using some custom made hearing protection.

                                    

However, if you are attending a sporting event, a concert, working as a DJ, musician or

bartender (for example) you still want to be able to hear people, and the sounds around

you. By using custom musician earplugs (with the appropriate filter),

we can save your ears from noise related damage.

 

Here at The Audiology Clinic Edmonton we can take impressions of your ears in order to have custom made hearing protection made for you! Call us too book an appointment today!

If you are working in noisy environments, then typically we want to reduce as much noise as possible, you would want a custom earpiece which has NO FILTER thus keeping as much sound out as possible.

What is noise related damage? And why is it irreversible?

The sound enters your ear, and makes its way to your brain by passing the structure known as the cochlea. Inside the cochlea we are born with thousands of hair cells inside which can be damaged by a variety of things such as:

  • noise

  • head injury

  • age

  • virus
