Sensorineural Hearing Loss

Sensorineural hearing loss, also known as SNHL, is due to inner ear damage. Damaged nerve pathways from the inner ear to the brain can cause this loss of hearing.

Sounds will feel softer and loud noises will seem muffled. When suffering from SNHL, people typically struggle to hear people speak.

Unlike conductive hearing loss, medicine and surgery are rarely able to fix the hearing loss issue.

Hearing aids can offer a better hearing solution. Some hearing aids now have innovative hearing tech to give a close to natural sound.

Some Sensorineural hearing loss causes:

  1. Impact on the head
  2. Ageing
  3. Hereditary hearing issues
  4. Listing to loud noises like explosions
  5. Being in a noisy environment for continuous periods.
  6. Illness
  7. Toxic drugs that can affect hearing
