Audiology is a term some may hear but not actually know. Through a quick perusal of our website, it’s clear that it refers to hearing and its loss. However, that’s just a baseline definition of the practice. Like anything, there’s much more beyond the initial conclusion. While you may already know that audiologists help you with your hearing needs, you might be unaware of everything else they accomplish.
What Exactly Is An Audiologist?
An audiologist is someone who tends to people with hearing trouble or loss. The biggest function that comes with audiology is knowledge and direction of hearing aids. After an initial evaluation and diagnosis, the audiologist will devise a plan to combat your hearing issues. In addition to prescribing hearing aids, they will provide rehabilitation training as well. With audiology, you’re also subjected to intense testing to find the root of the problem, and if surgical attention is required they will recommend you.
Do I Need To See An Audiologist?
While hearing loss typically happens as we grow older, it can genuinely occur at any age. The only issue is that not many people actually realize they have a problem at a younger age. For this fact, we treat all ages. Hearing loss can occur from a variety of things, which is why extensive testing occurs to find the problem. If you feel your hearing is not up to par, do not hesitate to see an audiologist. They’ll give you the best direction on your ears, and they’ll work with you to find the best game plan for your hearing. A regular evaluation is nothing to be ashamed of, and if something can be fixed, you’ll be thankful when you get older.
