Do you like to attend concerts? Do you enjoy loud music in your headphones every day while traveling to work/school? Maybe you work at a construction site, then you are familiar with the noise of heavy construction equipment. Have you ever wondered if all of the above is the cause of hearing problems?

Indeed, prolonged noise exposure is a common cause of hearing loss these days. The modern lifestyle creates conditions in which a person is constantly in a noisy environment. This is harmful to health, especially to the hearing organs. You want to keep your hearing healthy, don't you?

Why does hearing acuity drop?

First, you should understand why hearing loss occurs due to prolonged exposure to noise. We need to understand how we hear the world around us. There are special cells in our ear cochlea – hair cells. These are the receptors of the auditory system. They react to external manifestations by forming electrical impulses, after which they enter the brain through the auditory nerve. The brain processes these signals, and as a result, we perceive them as sounds. Problems at each site cause hearing problems. Let's focus in more detail on the receptors of the auditory system.

Hair cells are the most important tool for our sound perception. Unfortunately, these cells are very fragile. Moreover, they do not recover after damage! This is the key problem. If a certain number of hair cells are damaged, hearing loss occurs.

This is one of the main reasons for age-related hearing loss. The older a person gets, the more he accumulates damaged hair cells, which means the worse he hears. However, the modern lifestyle of most people, especially in large cities, contributes to greater damage to the receptors of the auditory system. Medications and noise exposure affect and damage hair cells. The result of such exposure is gradual hearing loss!

What to do?

Ear doctor Staten Island notes that the best treatment for hearing loss is its prevention, which is especially important for hearing problems caused by prolonged noise exposure. Therefore, the first step to healthy hearing is to neutralize noise exposure.

This is not so easy to do if you live near a noisy highway, subway, or airport. It is best to use noise-canceling materials when repairing a house/apartment. It's not cheap, but health is more important! If this did not help you, then the only right decision is to move to a quieter area.

Is your work related to noise exposure? Imagine that you are a builder, an airline employee, or a professional musician. Your main task is to stop the impact of noise. Today it is not difficult, for example, builders can use special protective earplugs or headphones. There are both disposable and individual earplugs. With protective headphones, you will hear everything around you without unnecessary acoustic noise. There are special electronic earplugs for musicians that automatically reduce frequencies. Today there are effective things to protect against noise exposure. The main thing is to use them constantly.
