What Is Audiology?
Audiology is just the fancy medical term for the science of understanding how people hear. Audiologists are medical professionals who have a number of skills that allow them to evaluate and diagnose hearing problems, develop measures to prevent hearing damage, and treat problems relating to balance and hearing. When appropriate, audiologists also work to prescribe and fit hearing aids. Audiologists can test for issues relating to how the central auditory system processes sounds, perform electrophysiological tests, work to rehabilitate hearing and treat issues relating to balance.
What Is An Audiologist?
Audiologists are medical doctors who specialize in the evaluation and treatment of issues relating to hearing. All audiologists have a Master’s or Doctorate degree in audiology from a medical school and may hold additional certifications relating to hearing disorders and treatment. Many audiologists have spent years continuing their education as they work in both private practice and hospital settings. Audiologists are trained and equipped to treat both children and adults, helping them with balance and hearing issues.
Why Should I See An Audiologist?
Anyone who suspects that they may have an issue with their balance or is experiencing difficulty hearing should visit an audiologist. Depending on the nature and severity of the issue, audiologists may recommend hearing aids, develop treatment plans to perform aural rehabilitation or devise a course of therapy to treat balance issues. Audiologists also perform highly technical assessments of a person’s hearing as part of a general health check-up.
