Hearing Loss is More About What You Do Than Your Age
What you can do to avoid noise-induced hearing loss
March 14, 2016
Overly loud sounds can damage sensitive structures in the inner ear and cause noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL). Approximately 15 percent of Americans between the ages of 20 and 69—or 26 million Americans—have hearing loss that may have been caused by exposure to noise during daily activities.
“Noise-induced hearing loss is 100% preventable!” says Dr. Amy Mullin, ARC Audiologist. In this recent podcast, Dr. Mullin discusses hearing loss and the steps you can take to protect your hearing from loud noises in the environment.
Dr. Mullin is currently accepting new patients at ARC South 1st Specialty. Call 512-512-443-1311 or go online to make an appointment.
