Setting Your Ears Up For Success

Friday, February 12, 2016 10:35:00 AM Australia/Melbourne

There are many hearing impairments that occur at birth and take years of therapy and hearing devices to either overcome or to treat. But there are also hearing impairments that occur when you don’t take proper care of your ears.

 

You may not even realize that you’re doing it. After all, we live in a world where we experience sensory overload on a regular basis. Colors are brighter than they’ve ever been. Tastes are amplified, as artisan cooking becomes the norm, not the exception. And your hearing is no exception. Technology companies are looking to make advancements where you’ll be able to hear and understand the drop of a needle on a crowded street. It’s not a world that’s getting quieter anytime soon.

 

Setting Your Ears Up For SuccessHearlink doesn’t think that this is any excuse. We want 100% of our patients to be able to hear and enjoy the sounds around them. The sounds of the neighborhood, the city, the beach, the weather, the music, the television, the theater, the sports—we want you to have it all. And you can maximize these chances if you integrate best hearing practices into your day-to-day life. Avoiding additional damage to your hearing is your #1 most effective option as far as treatment goes, once any damage is in effect. We do offer a large range of services to help aid prevention. These range from ear plugs that you can wear to work if you spend your days in a noisy environment to hearing tests will accurately identify any early damage and help us put together a prevention and treatment plan.

 

Basics fist. Your ears operate through a series of intricate processes that use the detection of vibrations to translate into the perception of sounds. If you’re continuously exposing your ears to repetitive and high-pitched voices, you’re already doing your ears a disservice. So let’s break down some easy-to-follow tips and tricks.

 

Noise Volume- The biggest culprit is noise volume. Your parents really did have your best intentions when they kept telling you to turn the volume down on your stereo or music system when you were growing up. If you’re just now tuning in, keep an eagle eye on that volume control.

 

Noise Exposure Length- You may also want to keep an eye on the duration of whatever you may be listening to. This is a good reminder in general to stop, take a deep breath and enjoy the silence of life around you. To stop and smell the roses, but in a different sense- for your ears. Try to challenge yourself to quiet time at least once a day. Your ears will thank you.

 

Workplace Noise- You may not have a ton of control over the pitch, duration or volume of noise in your workplace. And you probably don’t want to go changing careers just yet. Instead, as mentioned above, invest in a good pair of earplugs. The benefits are twofold- your colleagues will allow you to concentrate and get twice as much work done!

 

These are just a couple of tips to keep in mind. Questions? Reach out to any of the Hearlink team members.
