How Hearing Works
Understanding how the ear works and how we hear is essential in properly diagnosing a hearing problem and how to approach treating that hearing loss.
Different Types of Hearing Loss
Hearing loss may be mild, moderate, moderately-severe, severe or profound and vary across pitches so it is important to understand the many different types of hearing loss.
Musicians’ Hearing Loss and Prevention
Musicians, from classical orchestras to rock groups, are exposed to high decibel ranges. Musicians suffer not just from hearing loss but also a ringing in their ears and various pitch-perception problems.
Tinnitus is a very common disorder that is an abnormal perception of a sound which is unrelated to an external source of stimulation. Many report it as being a constant ringing in the ears.
Causes of Tinnitus
Though this condition is usually not dangerous, it can be a symptom of another health problem or underlying condition. Tinnitus can cause so many stressful side effects, including fatigue, sleep problems, concentration difficulty, memory problems, depression, anxiety, and irritability. Though it's not necessarily serious, it can be quite debilitating.
