Inside our inner ears are tiny hairs that detect sound, and the cochlear nerve that transmits it to the brain. Damage to these components caused by noise, disease and the natural process of ageing results in sensorineural hearing loss. Throughout our lives, we all gradually lose these vital hair cells.
If you think someone you know has hearing loss, do not hesitate to contact us. We have in-depth knowledge from treating all types of hearing loss, and we can help you.
Sensorineural hearing loss is the most common type of hearing loss. It most often occurs due to the natural process of ageing, or frequent exposure to high levels of noise. Other causes include viral infections, diseases, cancer treatments and medicines. The condition is permanent in most cases, so hearing aids are necessary to improve hearing.
It depends on several factors. In some cases, prescribed medication may ease symptoms and reduce inflammation in the inner ear so that sounds become clearer. In other cases, where hearing loss is due to damaged hair cells, most people with sensorineural hearing loss will benefit from hearing aids. The best way to ensure the optimal treatment for you is to book a free hearing check-up with our experts. Then we can determine the extent of your hearing loss and develop the best solution for you.
