What is a Balance Disorder?

It’s a condition that makes you feel dizzy or unsteady while standing, sitting or lying down. Your balance is collectively controlled by your vision, muscles, joints and inner ears. The two parts of your inner ear – the cochlea and vestibular system – are responsible for helping you maintain your spatial awareness.

Image of people watching fireworksThe July 4th fireworks are such an American tradition that almost every town in the country holds its own fireworks display. If you happen to live in a building on the East River in New York City, you can look out in the horizon and see 20 or more fireworks displays in all the towns from Westchester County, NY to Long Island and on to Brooklyn.

 

But will you hear the sounds? If you are over 55, there is a good chance you have some hearing loss, whether it is due to aging, your job, the volume on your headphones or maybe just attending lots of rock concerts when you were younger.  At Audio Help we care about your hearing and want to help you prepare for the sounds and joys of the July 4th celebration…which this year will be extra special as we have almost come to the end of the Covid crisis.

Your Mask May Affect Your Speech Hearing

Do you struggle to understand what other people are saying while they’re wearing a mask? It’s common for people with hearing loss, especially because masks hinder lip-reading and obscure facial expressions. Luckily, there are hearing aid settings that can improve your hearing.
