BHM AAA Hearing Loss: Is the Third Most Common Health Problem in the United States

Hearing loss currently affects more than 36 million Americans today. Although hearing problems are commonly associated with the normal aging process, more than half of all hearing-impaired persons are younger than 65. With the increased use of personal music players (MP3s) and earbuds, the number of Americans experiencing hearing loss at a younger age is growing.

On average, most Americans consider hearing loss a condition that is simply associated with aging, and don’t know how to recognize the condition or who is qualified to diagnose and treat the condition. In an effort to raise public awareness for the growing number of Americans suffering from hearing loss, the American Academy of Audiology in conjunction with Priority Hearing & Tinnitus is celebrating Better Hearing Month this May.

As part of Better Hearing Month, Priority Hearing & Tinnitus is encouraging consumers to be more aware of their hearing health.

“Hearing loss can be caused by exposure to loud noises; ear infections, trauma, or ear disease; harm to the inner ear and ear drum; illness or certain medications; and deterioration due to normal aging process,” explains Devin Anderson, Au.D. 

An audiologist is a highly educated and clinically experienced health-care professional who specialize in evaluating, diagnosing, and treating people with hearing loss and balance disorders. Hearing loss can affect patients of all ages—newborns, infants, babies, toddlers, children, teens, adults, and the elderly.

You may have a problem with your hearing and need to see an audiologist, if you have trouble hearing conversation in a noisy environment such as a restaurant, are unable to hear people talk to you without looking at them, or have a constant ringing or pain in your ears.

The first step in treatment of a hearing problem is a hearing evaluation by an audiologist.

Priority Hearing & Tinnitus’ audiologists have a variety of specialties to include, but not limited to:

  • Prescribing and fitting hearing aids
  • Assessing and treating tinnitus
  • Providing hearing rehabilitation training such as
    • Auditory training
    • Speech reading
    • Listening skills improvement

Although most hearing loss is permanent, an audiologist can determine the best treatment, which may include hearing aids, assistive listening devices, and hearing rehabilitation. For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact our office.

As one of the premier audiology practices in San Tan Valley & Maricopa, AZ, our audiologists and team at Priority Hearing & Tinnitus also provide 5-star hearing care to patients from Queen Creek & Fountain Hills, AZ & the surrounding areas.
