Blog: Here’s to Your Legacy of Great Hearing, Lethbridge!
“Don’t sit too close to the TV; It’s bad for your eyes.” Like most Canadian kids, your parents probably said this at one time or another during your adolescence. Then, in your teen years, you likely heard, “Turn down that music. You’re going to go deaf!” Yet, this statement actually has more than a micron of truth to it. Short-term, loud noises and long-term, moderate noises do lead to hearing loss. Even a vacuum cleaner or bird chirping nearby for extended periods can cause some degree of hearing loss.
Unlike hair and fingernails, once the sound-transferring hair cells of the inner ear are injured, there’s no way to reverse the damage.
By reading and following the information presented in our blog, we hope you become more attentive in caring for your hearing so you can enjoy a lifetime of great conversations, birds chirping, beautiful music, and all the wonderful things hearing can do for you. And, if you currently have some level of hearing loss, we’ve provided some useful information on how you can have it treated. Enhancing your hearing can help with your career, social life, and everything else you may be missing out on.
