Musicians’ Hearing Loss and Prevention
Regardless of what type of music they play, musicians are constantly exposed to high-decibel sounds. Because of this high-decibel immersion, it’s crucial for musicians to wear proper ear protection to prevent hearing loss and tinnitus.
Our auditory system isn’t just responsible for hearing, it also contributes to our balance. Problems with the external, middle or inner ear can contribute to dizziness and feeling off-balance. Proper hearing care can help determine the cause of dizziness and how it can be treated.
Tinnitus is commonly described as a ringing-in-the-ears sensation. This buzzing, whooshing or hissing is generally not caused by an external source and is often caused by hearing loss or other health issues. Seeking treatment from a hearing professional is essential in diagnosing and treating tinnitus.
