Hearing Loss and Sport

Are you a FIFA world cup 2018 fan?

Perhaps you are supporting your nation this season, and enjoying the football celebrations, however, noticed you are unable to hear all of the commentary as well as you have previously...this might be due to progressive hearing loss or perhaps noise induced hearing loss?

The best way to find out...a professional hearing test!

You may find yourself or a loved you simply ignoring the issue and saying "I'm slightly hard of hearing, that's all...", all levels of hearing loss should be acknowledged. Hearing aids may not always be the solution, in some cases ear wax removal solves temporary loss of hearing.    

Hearing care is an important part of your health! Many individuals throughout the world face challenges every day in their careers and social lives and surpass hearing loss obstacles by addressing and treating hearing problems.    

Do you wish to inspire sports in someone's life?

There are many deaf sports players from various different sports, each never letting hearing loss defeat their dreams. 

Reece Cattermole is a good example, he is currently the UK's only deaf professional boxer, who is proud to overcome many obstacles. He states "Our main aim is to go for title fights at British level, but for me personally inspiring others is one of the main goals",  he then goes on to acknowledge "It shows despite disability you can still achieve what your dreams are", read more in the BBC Sports article below:

Long exposure to water may cause irritation, if fingers, cotton swabs, or other objects are then used to clean or itch ears, the softened skin can be easily broken, spreading any infection.
