Making sense of sound is one of the brain’s most difficult tasks, individuals suffering from concussions often struggle to understand sound in complex listening environments. Audiology can be used to help identify and manage concussions.
Hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing in the ears) are two of the most commonly reported results from traumatic brain injuries or concussions. These symptoms might include:
- Hearing loss
- Sensitivity to noise
- Auditory processing problems
At Hearing Health Clinic, we assess mild TBI/concussions, monitor recovery as well as provide rehabilitation, such as:
- Auditory Training programs to help temporal processing, hearing in noise, and working memory
- Hearing aids and/or FM systems
