You can’t put a price on great hearing care, which a lot of folks take for granted until they experience hearing loss, tinnitus, or some other frustrating condition. There are two components to taking care of your hearing: 1) good personal habits (like using hearing protection in noisy places), and 2) dedicated hearing care.
That latter aspect pertains to the professional services we offer at Coastal Hearing Care, including hearing exams, hearing aids, custom ear molds, and so forth. Here are the reasons you should take advantage of dedicated hearing care from a professional audiologist.
Care From a Licensed Professional
While most day-to-day hearing care tasks are essentially “do-it-yourself” oriented, there are some issues and conditions that require professional assistance. The inner ear is very complex, and if something goes wrong, you don’t want to rely on amateur solutions. If you experience persistent trouble, or something unusually painful, contact a licensed professional for a hearing exam.
Custom Fit Hearing Aids & Supplies
We’re blessed to have access to so much better hearing technology than in decades past. Coastal Hearing Care offers all kinds of customizable hearing-care supplies, including high-tech digital hearing aids. This allows those who have suffered hearing loss to hear better in almost any environment: listening to someone else speak, watching television, or talking on the phone.
The Advantage of a Patient/Doctor Relationship
Your audiologist is a doctor, just like your primary care physician or other specialists, which means they take the Hippocratic Oath and approach hearing care intending to heal. Our team of audiologists not only has training in ear physiology but also comprehends lifestyle factors that affect hearing. This would include age-related issues or complex disorders like Meniere’s disease. Competent audiologists know that they’re treating a patient, not just their ears.
Get a Grip on Tough Problems Like Tinnitus
If you browse the web for topics like “hearing loss” or “tinnitus,” you’ll come across many individuals who suffer from these difficult afflictions. It’s difficult to cope with tinnitus or balance issues, but you’ll have a much better chance with the audiologist’s help. Some hearing problems stem from dozens of potential causes, so it’s important to have a trained professional diagnose them and investigate treatment options.
Detect Hearing Defects Early
Preemptive hearing care is just like anything else in life; it pays to find the problem early before it gets worse. If you wait too long to contact the hearing doctor, you could lose even more hearing capacity. We don’t say this to threaten or scare anybody, but to encourage you to seek help when it’s still possible to reverse something less severe.
