October is National Audiology Awareness Month

October is National Audiology Awareness MonthThe statistics are shocking and even more so knowing that over half of those 36 million Americans are under the age of 65.  Hearing loss is an increasing health concern in this nation.   Make an appointment with an audiologist this October during National Audiology Awareness Month.

“Hearing loss can be caused by exposure to loud noises, trauma, or ear disease; harm to the inner ear, illness and deterioration due to the normal aging process,” explains Dr. Dana Luzon.  The amount of noise Americans are exposed to today plays an important role in the recent increase of hearing loss across the nation. It is no longer just a health concern for seniors.

Some tell signs of hearing problems are: 

• trouble hearing conversation in a noisy environment such as restaurants

• difficulty following along in group conversations

•  Increasing the volume on the television and the sound still not being clear

• difficulty or inability to hear people talking to you without looking at them

• withdrawal from social gatherings

If you think you may have a hearing loss, you need to see a Doctor of Audiology. A hearing evaluation will determine the degree of hearing loss you have and what can be done. Although most hearing loss is permanent, an audiologist can determine the best treatment.

In response to the growing number of Americans suffering from hearing loss, the American Academy of Audiology in conjunction with Audiology and Hearing Aids of the Palm Beaches have launched National Audiology Awareness Month this October.

In celebration of Audiology Awareness Month, Audiology & Hearing Aids of the Palm Beaches is having a Better Hearing Event,
October 13th-15th.  During this special 3 day event, they will be offering:

• Complimentary consultations and hearing screenings

• Video Otoscopy

• In-depth counseling on hearing test results and your best options for treatment

• A listening demonstration with new hearing technology

Space is limited for this event and attendees should RSVP before 10/9 by calling 561-627-3552.”
