What Causes Hearing Loss?

Your community hearing health newsletter!

Noise is the primary cause of hearing loss, not age. Millions of Americans, including children, have permanent hearing loss caused by the daily noises encountered in life. The world is a very noisy place: lawn mowers, emergency sirens, car alarms, concerts, firearms and portable musical devices can all take a serious toll on hearing.

Human ears are fragile. Sound waves enter the ear and vibrate the eardrum; the vibrations are sent to the inner ear, and fluid transmits them to nearby hair cells. These cells stimulate auditory nerves, which travel to the brain. The brain then translates these signals into words, music, and other sounds.

Sound exposure from an early age can further impair hearing later in life. In 2006, a study by the American Speech Language Hearing Association revealed that up to 35% of adults and 59% of teenagers listen to music at loud volumes. Researchers urge users of such devices to lower the volume to start protecting their hearing. Now is the time to prevent hearing damage!

Damage to this complex system is caused both by volume and the length of exposure to sound. Such exposure can cause hearing cells to degenerate and die. Once these cells are gone, they cannot be replaced, resulting in hearing loss.
