Are your parents having difficulty hearing?
As our parents, loved ones, and even ourselves age, our ability to listen can be impacted by loss of hearing. The loss of hearing can be caused by many things. We are not pretending to be hearing experts, however, wanted to share an experience likely true of somebody you love and care about. The purpose of ear wax is to filter and keep our ear canal clean. Over months and years, however, we can collect ear wax and debris in front of our ear drum making it difficult for our ear drum to work properly. This ear wax can be removed by an Ear Nose and Throat Specialist (ENT). The type of instruments needed are typically found at an ENT specilist.
Recently I took a client of mine to an ENT specialist and the doctor removed a lot of wax and debris from the client's ear canal. This person who has a difficult time hearing, had some good improvement in ability to hear and listen.
Don't let your parents become isolated because they cannot hear. Get a referral from their general provider and make an appointment at an ENT specialist today. You will be glad you did.
