Hearing Health Important for Whole Body Health

Couple listens for importance of hearing health for whole body health

Multiple studies confirm the absolute importance of good hearing health in promoting whole body health, emotional and physical, as people age. The significant findings of these studies suggest, just as the standards for eye care and dentistry have become routine in America, so too should hearing health.

Despite the rapid growth of hearing loss—which is now the third most common health condition in the United States--there remains little national attention to good hearing and its long-term benefits.

Hearing fitness is something that needs to be taken as seriously as eye care. Having your hearing checked regularly can help preserve gray matter within your brain, may reduce incidents of unexpected falls, supports communication and emotional health. Good hearing has numerous physical benefits that increase as a person ages.

In addition to misunderstanding the importance of hearing health, most people remain unaware of the fact that their hearing may be compromised without them being aware of it. It is assumed that if a change in hearing isn’t being noticed or doesn’t bother them, then it doesn’t need to be treated. The truth of the matter is that hearing needs to be cared for and an experienced audiologist can diagnose a hearing issue and recommend treatment after one appointment. Below is a video discussing three simple ways to help protect your hearing as you age.
