Let’s talk a little bit about how you can prevent hearing loss.

Well, since there are many types of hearing loss, not all hearing loss is preventable.

However, if you have normal hearing, you should take precautions to prevent early-onset hearing loss.

What are the precautions you should take?

Noise

One of the biggest impacts on hearing is noise. Noise is detrimental to our ears, and that noise can be in many forms. That noise can be in the workplace, in your daily environment at home, or listening to music loudly.

You should keep in mind when you are around a lot of noise, you should utilize hearing protection so that the loud noise does not damage your ear.

Once the ear is damaged just a little bit, it will regenerate – but over time, the ear does not reheal itself, and that damage becomes permanent, resulting in hearing loss.

Hearing Protection

Using hearing protection is one of the best precautions you can take to protecting your hearing. Hearing protection is a means to prevent outside noise from causing damage permanently to your hearing.
