Audiology is a field of medicine primarily focused on hearing health, although it also extends to balance issues and other similar disorders. The end goal for every audiologist is to ensure every patient can attain a normal level of hearing. As such, the field of audiology covers everything from hearing tests and tinnitus treatments to hearing aids, cochlear implants and other hearing assistance devices.
Christopher Hutchinson, Ph.D., an audiologist in the Medical Associates of Brevard network, is dedicated to ensuring every one of his patients can hear all the sounds of the world.
Hearing loss isn’t just inconvenient. There are a number of long-term negative side effects associated with hearing loss, including irritability, depression and lack of alertness. This could result in severe physical injury, as patients with hearing issues may not hear danger approaching, but it also leads to deep psychological issues over time. Mainly because people who can’t hear clearly tend to withdraw from social interactions and suffer from loneliness and other problems associated with feelings of isolation.
