San Pedro, CA (PRWEB) March 11, 2016
Some medical specialties need little explanation: most people are familiar with, for example, the services rendered by a dentist or eye doctor. Hearing care, however, is a different story, and many valuable services are less well-known or undervalued.
To raise awareness of the importance of caring for the one’s hearing health, Parker Hearing Institute has published an article titled What a Hearing Care Professional Can Do For You.
The article describes six services provided by audiologists that can improve people’s hearing and overall well-being. Services include the professional assessment of hearing and balance, earwax removal, customized hearing protection, professional hearing tests, hearing aid selection and fitting, and finally, a lifetime of healthy hearing.
Hearing health has been shown to impact social, mental, and physical health, and hearing loss has been associated with several conditions including cognitive decline and memory impairment. Maintaining healthy hearing, therefore, should be a top health priority. But something as important as hearing health should also not be left in the hands of just anyone.
Audiologists are specially trained in hearing healthcare, with doctorate degrees, professional licensure, and extensive clinical experience. Hearing and hearing loss are complex physiological processes, and the treatment of hearing loss with hearing aids, which are sophisticated electronics, requires the highest levels of knowledge and experience, which is why audiologists are the professionals of choice when it comes to hearing care.
