Hearing loss can be detrimental to many aspects of your life so it is best to keep your hearing in check and get help when hearing loss arises. Many people, however, don’t realize that they are losing their hearing. Getting hearing tests periodically can help to catch the hearing loss early and take the necessary steps to manage it.
There are three types of hearing loss: conductive hearing loss, sensorineural hearing loss and mixed hearing loss. Conductive hearing loss (CHL) typically occurs when there is an issue with the external ear, ear canal, eardrum or ear bones, whereas sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) is a problem with the inner ear or the nerve pathways to the brain. Mixed hearing loss is a combination of the two.
