Hearing loss is a problem that is extremely widespread in the United States. In fact, it is the third largest health problem after heart disease and arthritis. When a person has this medical problem, it can make them feel isolated and depressed and result in withdrawal from normal everyday activities. Many people in that situation have difficulty in detecting speech when there is background noise, find themselves asking people to repeat themselves when they speak to them, increase the volume of their TV or radio, and find that normal sounds seem muffled.

Tinnitus is another common problem millions of Americans face every single day. It is characterized by the sound of ringing, buzzing, clicking, and other sounds in the ear, although those sounds actually come about due to the way the brain perceives the auditory system. Dr. Batini can do her part to help you so that your tinnitus is more in the background with sound devices or even recommend therapy.

Consider Buying Hearing Devices

Hearing aids can certainly help in your everyday life so that you can hear sounds that you might otherwise be missing. Dr. Batini can determine your level of loss with a test and discuss your options with you so that you can come up with the best possible device for you needs. There are a number of them available, including hearing aids for both ears or, if you have profound loss in one ear, an aid for just one ear.

There is also the option of earplugs that can protect your ears by reducing the sound by 15 to 20 decibels. These are made using a mold that is fitted to your ears and include filters that can lower sound you hear. Earplugs are a must for many people, including those who don’t have an auditory loss and can help you to retain your hearing.

If you live in or around the Red Bluff, California, area and require an audiologist, be sure to contact Dr. Angela Batini’s office at your earliest convenience for all of your audiology needs.
