Could Auditory Training Help You Hear Better?

Auditory training might be helpful for more people than those with hearing loss. For example:

  • Children with auditory processing disorders can benefit from training that helps them concentrate on the sound of spoken language. 
  • People with autism, or others who are very sensitive to sound, could also benefit.

Imagine that auditory training is like coaching. You will be a better swimmer if you have a coach who can teach you to be strong and confident in the water. An auditory trainer can help you move more easily through conversation and communication. 

Ask your hearing professional at CCMC for more information about auditory training, also called audiologic rehabilitation.

Can Auditory Training Help Your Hearing Loss?

If you have hearing loss, you know that your impairment can make it a challenge to socialize and could lead to isolation and even depression. 

Ask your hearing consultant about auditory training. It is possible to improve the way you are managing your hearing loss. Training can help you improve your listening skills and take some of the strain out of conversation. 

Our training can help you focus on important sounds and block out non-language noises, making best use of the hearing you maintain. CCMC wants to help you live your best life, communicating freely with the people you love.

Seasonal Allergies Can Affect Your Hearing

Are allergies causing your hearing loss? If you have seasonal allergies, you may also have itchy, swollen, clogged ears with some hearing loss. Hearing loss from seasonal allergies is usually temporary but if you get frequent ear infections, it could become permanent. 

If you’re not sure if you have allergies that might be causing hearing loss, or if you’ve noticed hearing loss you can’t explain, we can help.

Are Allergies Harming Your Hearing?

Do you feel pressure in and around your ears recently?

The problem might not be your ears. You might have seasonal allergies or “hay fever.” In spring, pollen from trees, grasses, and weeds travels in the wind – and into the air you breath. If you’re sensitive to these, you may experience allergy symptoms like:

  • Runny and/or stuffy nose
  • Itchy eyes and nose
  • Red, watery, swollen eyes
  • Swollen, itchy, or painful ears
  • Muffled hearing

If you’re not sure, we’re here to help!

Hearing Loss Has Many Causes

Many people think of hearing loss as something that only affects us as we age. While age is the most common cause of hearing loss, it’s not the only one. People of any age can suffer a loss of hearing. 

For some, it’s a gradual process that takes years to notice. For others, it may be sudden. In fact, you might be surprised by some of the causes, like:

  • Health conditions
  • Medications, and
  • Chronic stress

Whatever the cause, hearing loss can affect your relationships, your social life, and your everyday enjoyment of the little things. At CCMC Hearing Care, we’ll diagnose your hearing loss and help you understand your treatment options.
