Living your life doesn't have to mean putting yourself at risk for permanent hearing loss. It also does not mean that you need to opt out of certain activities in order to prevent hearing loss. Knowing what frequent activities can negatively affect our hearing long-term and taking steps to eliminate or take protective measures in the future can do wonders! So, what are some things that cause hearing loss?
Wearing hearing protection when in a noisy environment, eating healthy, staying active and eliminating smoking among other small changes can make a huge difference not just for your hearing, but your overall health.
Another step you can take to make sure you are not causing hearing loss is to get your hearing checked every few years by a licensed professional. Hearing screenings are free and quick appointments - schedule yours today!
