Importance of Hearing Protection
Hearing is important. We use our hearing to listen to our loved ones speak to us, when we listen to our favorite podcast/music, when we listen to the wind blowing through the trees…when we listen to the world. So why not protect it?
Sometimes we are surrounded by loud, harmful sounds that over time can damage our hearing. Sometimes it can even be caused in your work environment. Do you wear hearing protection? If not, you could adapt to short-term or long-term hearing loss.
Of course, protection may differ depending on your sound exposure but, ear plugs and ear muffs are the main choices of protection that help reduce decibel exposure. In fact, earplugs provide the best protection, but not all know how to insert earplugs properly.
Here at Heartland Hearing Professionals, we can create custom earplugs specifically for you. We do this by making a mold of your ear to make sure it fits you properly. No need to hassle with those little earplugs anymore!
