Common Hearing Disorders

Many of the common disorders associated with a hearing loss are preventable or medically treatable. Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, can be caused by wax, exposure to loud noise or inner ear problems.

Conductive Hearing Loss occurs when sound is not transmitted efficiently to the normal nerve, and is caused by ear infections or middle ear damage. It is often medically correctable.

Sociocusis is the term for hearing loss resulting from environmental noise. It happens gradually and is permanent, but it can be prevented by the use of hearing protection.
