Hearing aids will help enhance what hearing you do have, but will not cure hearing loss. Hearing aids can make sounds audible based on your specific hearing loss. Your brain is responsible for making sense of the sounds. It is not realistic to expect the hearing aids to restore speech understanding as soon as you put them in your ears. It may take a few weeks to adjust and benefit from this introduction of sound. Hearing aids help keep the brain active in the processing of sounds. They can also ease stress and frustration by making communication easier. For more information, contact the experts at Physicians Hearing Center to schedule a consultation.
