COMMON HEARING DISORDERS
High frequency hearing loss is the most prevalent handicapping condition. It can occur with advancing age and is commonly associated with noise exposure
Ringing in the ears (tinnitus) affects over 5 million people. People older than 50 are twice as likely to experience tinnitus
Ear infections are the most common cause of temporary hearing loss in young children
Inner ear problems can cause a person to fall. Falls are the leading cause of injuries in people age 65 and older. Balance problems, or vertigo, prompt about 6 million U.S. residents to seek care each year. Nearly all balance disorders are caused by inner ear problems and the majority of patients benefit from treatment.
