Sensorineural hearing loss

Everybody loses tiny hair cells in the inner ear throughout life as a natural process of aging. It results from damage to the tiny hair cells in the inner ear, caused by age, noise and diseases. This type of hearing loss is called sensorineural hearing loss. 

If you think you or someone you know has hearing loss, do not hesitate to contact us at Audika. We have in-depth knowledge of all types of hearing loss – and we can also help you.


Reasons for sensorineural hearing loss

Sensorineural hearing loss is the most common type of hearing loss. It is mainly caused by damage to the sensitive hair cells in the inner ear or damage to the hearing nerves. This stops them from transmitting sound properly from the ear to the brain. This type of hearing loss most often occurs due to natural ageing or frequent exposure to high levels of noise – but other reasons such as viral infections, diseases, cancer treatments and medicines may cause sensorineural hearing loss as well. In most cases the condition is permanent and hearing aids are often required to improve hearing.


How to treat sensorineural hearing loss 

Treating sensorineural hearing loss depends on a number of factors. The best way to ensure the optimal treatment for you is to book a consultation and free hearing test at Audika. Thus, we can determine your extent of sensorineural hearing loss and develop the best plan and solution for you. In some cases prescribed medication may ease symptoms and reduce inflammation in the inner ear so that sounds become clearer. In other cases, where your hearing loss is due to damaged hair cells, sensorineural hearing loss may be incurable. But this does not mean it can’t be treated – most people with sensorineural hearing los will benefit from hearing aids.
