Colorado Springs, Colorado – February 12, 2017 /MarketersMedia/ — HearingLoss.org reports 48 million Americans struggle with some degree of hearing loss, which can have a devastating and painful impact on the person’s life. In fact, one in three adults age 60 and older have some hearing loss and 15 percent of children between the ages of 6 and 19 do also, but help is available. Sandia Hearing Aid Center remains available to assist those who have questions regarding this common problem.

“Whether an individual wishes to know more about Colorado Springs Hearing Aids, a hearing test in colorado springs or anything involving their hearing, our website can be of help. Visit our page at /learn-more/faq–frequently-asked-questions-about-hearing-aids/ to obtain answers to numerous questions for free, including information on what insurance is needed, how many hearing aids will be required and more,” B. Brittain, spokesperson for the Colorado Springs Audiology center, explains.

Sixty percent of individuals who have hearing issues are either in an educational setting or in the work force. For those in the work force, mild hearing loss typically doesn’t affect their income. However, as the hearing loss progresses, they will find their compensation decreases. For this and numerous other reasons, anyone who suspects they may be losing their hearing should seek help promptly.

“Symptoms of hearing loss vary by individual. Some people find they have trouble hearing while on the telephone, and others often notice those around them mumble or they must ask people to repeat what they said. The volume on a television or radio may need to be increased as hearing loss progress, and these are only a few of the symptoms a person may encounter as they begin to have problems with their hearing,” Brittain continues.

To determine if hearing loss is a concern, the individual needs to have a hearing test. This determines the degree of hearing loss, what may be leading to the issue and possible treatments. For some, removing fluid in the ear will suffice or ear wax may need to be cleared. Others find the problem is more extensive and hearing aids will be needed.

“We work with all patients to find where the problem lies and what the best possible treatment plan is. Our goal is to ensure the highest level of care for all who contact us. Give us a call today or use the contact form on our website if you have any concerns about your hearing. We’ll be happy to work with you in any way we can,” Brittain states.
