As one of our primary senses, our ability to hear well is something that many of us take for granted. Although hearing loss can occur throughout life, its prevalence increases as we get older. Despite being so commonplace, it is often a health concern that many ignore.
We hear by various mechanisms inside our ears receiving and transmitting sound waves through our inner ear, where our brain interprets them. Hearing loss occurs when one or more of these mechanisms is diminished or entirely ineffective.
