Hearing Diagnostics for All Ages
Hearing loss can occur at any age. At Rocket Balance, we have the technology and expertise to test the young and the young at heart.
In children, the effects of undiagnosed hearing loss can be detrimental to educational achievement. In older adults, undiagnosed hearing loss can lead to slow career development, social isolation, and depression.
People with hearing loss also face an increased risk of falls, which can result in bodily injury, head injury, or untimely death.
Typically, hearing loss occurs gradually over a long period of time. As hearing loss increases, it can become increasingly difficult to hear in more demanding environments. Sharing a meal with friends and family at a restaurant can become tiring. Communicating with others over the phone can become frustrating. If you find that talking to other people has become challenging, it may be time to have your hearing tested.
Solutions for Hearing Loss
Depending on the type and degree of hearing loss diagnosed, there are several different options for treating hearing loss including hearing aids and cochlear implantation. Hearing aids are used for losses ranging from mild to profound. Cochlear implantation is a surgical procedure for individuals with very profound hearing loss and extreme difficulty with communication.
Hearing aids come in a variety of sizes, shapes, colors, and technology levels. At Rocket Balance, hearing aids are recommended based on your specific hearing loss, communication difficulties, and lifestyle.
There are also accessories for hearing aid users that allow for more access to sound in specific situations, such as watching television, attending a conference, or listening to music.
Rocket Balance provides clinical expertise and caring support to you on your journey to better hearing.
Hearing Aid Care
At Rocket Balance, we believe that hearing aids are an important investment in your future happiness and independence. We offer hearing service appointments and specialized accessories to assist you in keeping your hearing aids performing as best as possible for as long as possible.
We also offer hearing aid insurance through ESCO. They are happy to work with you to extend the loss, damage, and repair coverage on your hearing aids after the manufacturer's warranty has expired.
For some patients, a temporary hearing loss may occur due to build up of earwax. Treatment is as easy as removing the blockage from the ear canal using a warm water flush and/or manual tools.
At Rocket Balance, we keep our patients "ahead of the curve" when it comes to earwax by scheduling regular ear check appointments for patients with a history of blockage.
