Exposure to loud activities and being surrounded by extremely loud noise increases your risk of inner hair cell damage and potential hearing loss or ringing in your ears. Protecting your ears from loud noises is very important and we at East Coast Audiology recommend safeguarding your ears with hearing protection.
By limiting your exposure to loud noises, avoiding noisy environments or wearing hearing protection can minimize hearing loss conditions. Custom ear protection is available at our office. This is a custom impression of the ear and provides the best protection.
Exposure to unwanted and loud noises is one of the biggest causes for hearing loss. Hearing loss induced by noise can be extremely damaging to inner ear hair cells causing hearing loss and/or tinnitus. The longer the duration and higher the intensity of the noise exposure, the more damaging it can be.
If you are experiencing a hearing loss and/or tinnitus that may be a result of noise exposure, make an appointment at our office for a complete hearing evaluation and treatment options.
