What Does an Audiologist Do?
An audiologist is a doctor whose specialty is the auditory and vestibular areas of the ear. Treatments include tinnitus, balance issues and hearing loss. They help patients by testing their hearing and helping with the choice of hearing aides. Audiologists can also help with suggestions for adaptations to daily life that can help you to live with your diminishing hearing. You should visit an audiologist when you are suffering from any of these conditions.
Hearing loss is often thought of as a disease of aging, but the reality is that anyone of any age can suffer from hearing loss. If you notice that you are asking people to repeat what they said regularly, have to raise the volume on your TV to hear the conversations, have difficulty in crowds distinguishing one voice from another, you may be suffering from hearing loss and need to be evaluated. It is time to call an audiologist in Detroit, Southfield, Novi, Livonia, St. Clair Shores, MI.
Tinnitus is a ringing, hissing, roaring or a buzzing in your ears that may constantly be there, or it may come and go, but it always comes back. It can happen in only one ear or in both ears and may be high-pitched or low-pitched. Tinnitus is not a disease on its own, it is a sign that something is wrong somewhere in the auditory system. Tinnitus does not have a cure, but your audiologist can provide some treatments that can help you to live with it.
If you are experiencing dizziness and balance issues, your audiologist can check for causes of these symptoms. If they come from your ear, it may be vertigo. If you have vertigo, your audiologist will recommend vestibular rehabilitation as a way to be able to get over it.
