Audiologists are professionals who advise people of all ages on how to prevent hearing and balance disorders. Audiologists can also diagnose and treat patients with hearing loss, which will improve the patient’s quality of life by helping them to resume important activities or professions. Patients can access these experts in hospitals, rehabilitation centers, physician’s offices, private practices, colleges and universities, and more.
What do audiologists do? Audiologists offer services such as treating hearing loss, assistive technology, evaluating and treating dizziness and balance, hearing screening and testing, noise and hearing loss prevention, advising on tinnitus, and more. Here are the benefits of seeking the services of audiologists.
Giving You Expert Advice
People who are experiencing hearing problems should seek the services of an audiologist to gather expert advice as well as treatment. Patients will receive services relating to communication issues, tinnitus, balance issues, hearing loss, hearing tests, hearing aids, wax build-up, and hearing protection.
Helping with Tinnitus
Audiologists can offer multiple solutions and advice to patients suffering from symptoms of tinnitus. Patients can discover other underlying diseases related to tinnitus, such as emotional stress, blood pressure, allergies, or noise exposure. We can advise you on various tinnitus management services such as tinnitus retraining therapy, sound therapy, or cognitive behavioral therapy. We can also refer you for further treatment from other medical professionals.
Through the use of an audiogram, we can test your hearing ability. When performing your hearing test, we observe a graphic representation of each ear after listening to different tones until the threshold is reached, to determine if you have any hearing issues.
Our audiologists can direct your choice of hearing products available in the market, such as musician earplugs, foam earplugs, industrial earplugs, solid earplugs, noise-canceling earmuffs, and more. Custom-fit hearing protection is another service that you can receive from us at Cornerstone Audiology.
Stop using objects to remove wax in your ear to avoid damaging your inner ear parts. We can remove wax build up in your ears safely through irrigation or micro-suction. Visit one of our audiologists for wax removal services and avoid issues such as decreased hearing, dizziness, drainage from the ear canal, tinnitus, ear pain, and more.
Advising on Balance Issues
Whenever you are experiencing balance issues and dizziness, it is essential to visit your audiologist to determine whether an underlying ear condition is affecting your balance. You will receive expert advice after we find a diagnosis for any balance issues that you may be experiencing.
Several factors, such as hobbies, work environment, age, loud noises, and more will affect your hearing ability over the years. We can offer you expert advice and treatment on various issues relating to your hearing health.
