Several Ways to Improve Hearing Ability

Hearing just like the other four sensory organs of vision, smell, taste and touch is equally indispensable that is essential in our everyday living for us to be able to communicate and to connect with our loved ones, work and social events. Hearing impairment can be caused by damage to the inner ear from injury, infection or through aging. Prolonged exposure to loud noises like in parties and shooting ranges can damage the cochlea, a spiral-shaped cavity of the inner ear and the main organ of hearing. The cochlea is the one responsible in converting sound vibrations into nerve impulses. Hearing loss cannot be healed nor repaired dramatically as intervention of medicine and technology like Vivid Acoustics is needed to enhance hearing ability of the damaged ears.

As sound is an important element in our lives, we should be aware of the ways how to improve our hearing ability.

Wax build up inside the ear can interfere with hearing and sometimes causes a ringing sensation that is painful or irritable. Consulting an EENT is recommended to determine the solution in the removal of the impacted earwax.

Hearing loss is one of the most common conditions commonly known as presbycusis affecting older adults. It is advisable to see a hearing professional to find the treatment or hearing aid that is right for you which could be helpful in improving hearing capability.

Audible impairment can also be caused by a viral or bacterial infection, heart conditions or stroke, head injuries, tumors, and certain medicines. It can happen to anyone at different ages and not necessarily for elders only. Monitoring the hearing capability is crucial especially when one is in poor health or ailing.

Avoid loud noises such as listening to loud music. Using plug in headphones in full volume can damage eardrums. Frequent partying in places with shrill and irritating noises can weaken or worst can harm audible range.

Practice sound therapy or active listening once in a while to focus hearing, to train the ears to pick up subtler, slight and ambient sounds in your environment.

Life would be most enjoyable if we can hear, listen and communicate well.
