Addressing Hearing Loss Sooner Brings Many Benefits

Why is it better to treat hearing loss sooner rather than later?

Identifying and addressing hearing loss early brings many benefits. From enhancing your quality of life, to helping protect against several health consequences linked to unaddressed hearing loss, the case for early treatment is strong.

Perhaps the most compelling reason to never put off a hearing test and treatment, however is simply this: We “hear” with our brain, not with our ears. When we have a hearing loss, the connections in the brain that respond to sound become reorganized.

Better Hearing & Speech Month 2015

Spring is here, and soon it will be Better Hearing & Speech Month in May.

Over the course of the next several weeks, the Better Hearing Institute (BHI) will be sending you information on hearing health that you can share in your practice, local community, and through social media.

To help get you started, we've answered the ever-important question: “Why is it better to treat hearing loss sooner rather than later?”
