Hearing Loss is the third most common health problem in the United States, and it is rising with more and more people every year, reporting problems associated with it. About 60 percent of people with this problem are in the work force or in educational settings. Children are also suffering from it with a statistic that 30 out of 1000 children are affected.
This problem should be taken serious because it can affect the quality of life and relationships.
Hearing Loss can develop with age or be caused by repeated exposure to loud noises. It can occur suddenly, but it develops gradually. Depending on the cause it can be mild, severe, temporary or permanent.
With children it is especially important to diagnose and treat it as soon as possible.
