Causes of Sensorineural Hearing Loss
More than 90 % of all hearing loss is sensorineural. Sensorineural hearing loss is caused by damage to the fine hearing nerves call haircells. We have hundreds of thousands of haircells located deep in the inner ear. Once damaged, there is no way to repair them. As more and more of the haircelss become damaged, hearing loss increases. Sensorineural hearing loss is almost always permenant.
Causes of sensorineural hearing loss inlcude:
Exposure to loud sounds (this is preventable)
Diseases such as Meniere's Disease,
Genetics (it can run in families)
Certain medications including some chemotherapy drugs
Do you use hearing protection when participating in loud activities such as lawn mowing, car races and concerts? Let us know.
