The most common cause of hearing loss that we see in our clinic is noise induced hearing loss. Many people do not realize how hazardous the levels of the lawn mower, weed eaters and leaf blowers are and they are doing yard work weekly. Don’t forget that power tools, such as saws and drills can reach dangerous levels. Many people assume just shooting guns for hunting or target shooting are bad, but concerts and iPod can also reach high decibel levels too.
We also specialize in hearing protection, so please contact our office for help and guidance in protecting your hearing.
