Hearing Awareness Week; Why we need to be aware
Hearing awareness week kicks off with World Hearing Day on Sunday 3rd of March, and this year it’s more important than ever for us to be aware of our hearing.
One in Six
Did you know the World Health Organization predicts that by 2050 there will be nearly 630 million people with disability hearing loss? The figures for those suffering from hearing loss and impairment has been increasing steadily over the last decade. Experts currently estimate that one in every six Australians will suffer from some form of hearing impairment in their lives. But preventing hearing loss is possible, and all of us can contribute by raising awareness about hearing loss, dispelling the myths, and talking about treatments.
Seeing you is the key to better hearing
At the Art of Hearing, we are about educating people about prevention and management of hearing loss. Not only do we specialise in the latest treatments, each member of our team brings an inclusive and holistic approach. We work one on one with our patients to provide them with the best possible care. That’s why we’ve been so successful in helping change lives.
Hearing loss of any kind is manageable with the right advice, guidance and specialised care. Even misunderstood conditions, like tinnitus, can be successfully treated.
The number one tinnitus myth
One of the most common misconceptions about tinnitus is that it is an ‘incurable’ disease.
Tinnitus itself is not a disease, it’s the result of any number of underlying health problems.
This is part of the reason why it is so important that those who suffer from tinnitus seek expert treatment.
When Martin Nowill, a painter and decorator by trade, reached out to us about his tinnitus, we helped him find the right treatment plan for his needs and budget.
Like Martin, Simon Banks also suffered badly from tinnitus. As a plumber and gas fitter, Simon was no stranger to noisy environments. Alongside his tinnitus, he also suffered headaches, so it was important for us to work with him to find the right solution.
“They’ve been very competent, very friendly. They’ve changed my life… really.” Said Simon. “They’ve made a difference.”
A wide range of options
Tinnitus sufferers shouldn’t just live with the condition. There’s a wide range of treatment options available which can both treat the condition and help manage it. Here at the Art of Hearing, we know just how life-changing the proper treatment can be.
Remember, seeing you is the key to better hearing. We’ve helped plenty of people just like Martin and Simon improve their quality of life and manage their tinnitus effectively.
