Our audiologists from Audiology & Hearing Aid Solutions put down their otoscopes and put on their polos as they travelled to the 98th PGA Championship at Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield Township, New Jersey.
The day was spent collecting autographs, enjoying the sunshine, and listening to all the action. The fairway was filled with a mixture of sounds ranging from roaring fans, quaint golf claps, and the echo of a beautiful “PING” from the perfect long drive.
Do you base your swing according to the sound of that “PING?” Does the “ping” indicate the long shot you have been waiting for, or not quite what you intended?
Many golfers use auditory information to adjust their swing and enhance their game. But if you have a hearing impairment, accompanied by tinnitus (ringing in the ears), vertigo, and/or problems concentrating, your golf game can suffer.
According to the Hearing Loss Association of America, nearly 20% of Americans have impaired hearing. Hearing loss is a major public health issue that affects cognition, physical health, self-esteem, family relationships and more.
The staff at Audiology & Hearing Aid Solutions understands the impact impaired hearing can have on your whole life, so we offer personalized hearing solutions to our patients in the Northern New Jersey area, including Clifton, Paramus, Mahwah, Pompton Lakes and Pompton Plains.
We also carry a variety of hearing aid devices from world-class brands such Oticon - a brand committed to delivering a natural hearing experience. Their newest device, Opn, is a state-of-the-art hearing aid that improves speech understanding, while simultaneously reducing listening efforts and enhancing conversation recall.
Be extra careful of loud noises this summer. Seemingly innocent sounds can cause hearing loss that can potentially take the form of tinnitus.
Tinnitus can be temporary or permanent and can be described as ringing, whining, or screeching or buzzing noise in the head or ears that varies in intensity. It can be intermittent or constant, depending on the person.
