An audiologist or Doctor of Audiology is a licensed healthcare professional who specializes in diagnosing, evaluating and treating hearing loss and balance disorders in individuals of all ages.
Clinical audiologists need be licensed or registered by the state to practice audiology. As a hearing professional, an audiologist will recommend the most appropriate treatment option for the hearing loss or balance disorder, and will refer to a licensed physician for medical follow-up when deemed necessary.
Hearing is complex, requiring a series of actions and reactions to work. The process involves many parts of the ear working together to convert sound waves into information the brain understands and interprets as sounds.
When you think about audiology and audiologists you probably think about the people and science dedicated to improving the hearing of the sounds all around us.
It’s true that audiologists routinely prescribe and fit hearing aids to help people get the most of their hearing, but did you know that audiologists also help people that hear sounds that aren’t present in the environment?
When it comes to preventing hearing loss, one of the easiest ways you can keep your auditory system healthy is by wearing proper hearing protection. Adirondack Audiologist understands the importance of finding the right hearing protection, that’s why we offer a number of custom earplugs, earmolds and solutions no matter your hobby or occupation.
Ear wax is a normal and healthy thing for our ears. Most people have a normal amount of ear wax, and the ear wax drains out of the ears by itself. Some people have too much ear wax and/or their ear wax does not drain properly, which means they can often end up with ear wax buildup deep down in the ear canal. This can be quite uncomfortable if not very painful.
Vertigo, dizziness, and balance problems can be life altering. For many people it can affect their ability to do even the simplest daily tasks. If you are experiencing vertigo or balance issues, your doctor may want to refer you for a VNG balance evaluation.
