Don’t Fall For it!!!

Don’t Fall For it!!!

Posted on 2013-09-01

According to a recent wellness report published in the Wall Street Journal, adults with mild hearing loss have a much greater risk of falling as compared to those with normal hearing.  The recent discovery of hearing loss as a pathway to falling is intriguing because hearing loss is highly prevalent across the country yet remains vastly undertreated among our aging population.  It was reported that with every 10-decibel loss of hearing, the odds of falling increased by an incredible 40% on average.  Don’t fall for it!!!  As the sense organs responsible for hearing and balance are both located in the inner ear, a dysfunction on one area may affect the other.  If you or a loved one are experiencing hearing loss or problems with balance, the Shea Ear Clinic and Shea Hearing Aid Center are here for you!  Give us a call today at (901) 415-6667 for your FREEhearing evaluation (including video otoscopy), and we’ll help put those concerns to rest!
