Torrance CA Hearing Test Provider, American Hearing & Balance, Offers Free Test

Posted: Updated:

Residents suffering from hearing loss in Torrance CA, can now access free initial hearing test on American Hearing & Balance website.

May 3, 2014 /MM-prReach/ —

Hearing loss is often associated with age because the majority of those suffering from loss of hearing are over 60 years old. Although many believe hearing loss is caused by a single event, in fact it is often caused by a combination of events that can include noise, earwax build up, and the natural aging process. Since the most common type of hearing loss is gradual, those suffering typically continue with their daily lives seemingly unaffected. The initiation of those seeking help from an audiologist is usually brought on by a loved one that notices increased volume on the television or the need to repeat themselves in conversation. A common reason for those with hearing impairment to resist seeing an audiologist is thinking they will appear ‘old’ if they have to wear hearing aids. Another common reason is the unknown costs involved in a full hearing exam when they don’t even know if they are in need of professional hearing care help.

The audiologists at American Hearing & Balance want to reduce the obstacles for residents in the Torrance, CA area to ensure everyone gets the care they need. For those resisting the need for an audiologist, American Hearing & Balance has added an online hearing test for potential patients in Torrance. This hearing test can be accessed directly on the American Hearing & Balance website and can be completed in the comfort and privacy of home. This initial online test will help those suffering from hearing problems determine if they indeed should seek the help of an audiologist. Since this test is offered free of charge, anyone can take that first step towards discovering if they have a hearing problem. After taking the online test, Torrance residents can download a Guide to Better Hearing provided by American Hearing & Balance, and schedule an appointment or consultation if needed. The Torrance audiologists want to assure first-time patients that not all hearing evaluations lead to the recommendation for hearing aids. Often, they find excessive earwax build up that can be removed to restore hearing to the patient.

More information and the free hearing test can be found online at the American Hearing & Balance website. For more information about hearing health care in general, visit the website or call the nearest location.
