Fortunately, there are things you can do to slow the natural progression of age related hearing loss. The first of these – whatever your age – is to protect your precious inner ear that transmits soundwaves to your brain. If you’ve ever been to a rock concert, you’ve placed extreme stress on your inner ear. And even just moving through urban traffic in a busy city will introduce significant sound pressure levels to the sensitive mechanisms of the inner ear.

The good news is that creating damage takes time – so unless you’re one of the rock stars or work as a roadie, you’re unlikely to have done significant damage. However, the bad news is that our inner ear doesn’t regenerate – once damaged hearing performance is reduced forever.

Hearing is living

‘But so what?’, you might think. It's just my hearing, not a heart condition. It comes as a surprise to many - especially younger adults - that reduced hearing ability has a significant impact on quality of life, social and communication skills, career opportunities and lifetime earnings. Hence, there are very good reasons why you want to include your hearing health in your regular health checks - it pays to hear well.
