Although some degree of hearing loss is often a natural part of the aging process, severe hearing loss should be addressed. Understanding how hearing works can help you determine whether your condition is serious enough to warrant corrective measures.
With this video, you can learn about different causes and types of hearing loss. In a normal ear, sound waves hit the eardrum and cause it to vibrate, transmitting the sound into the middle ear. The sound waves then move through a series of small bones, ultimately producing electrical signals that are passed on to the brain. Watch this clip to find out more about this process.
There are two main types of hearing loss: conductive hearing loss and sensorineural hearing loss. The hearing specialists at Dunshaw Hearing Aid Centers can identify which type of hearing loss you have and provide the appropriate treatment solution.
