Sensorineural hearing loss refers to any reduction in hearing sensitivity or sound clarity that is caused by damage to the delicate structures of the inner ear or the nerve pathways that carry the sound signal from the inner ear to the auditory processing area of the brain. Hearing aids are the primary treatment for sensorineural hearing loss as medical or surgical intervention is rarely possible. Since sensorineural hearing loss is often caused by exposure to loud noises, we highly recommend the use of hearing protection if you find yourself around loud noises frequently. If you have any questions about sensorineural hearing loss or hearing loss in general, please contact one of our locations to speak with an audiologist.


Sensorineural hearing loss is the most common type of hearing loss and affects 28 million Americans. Exposure to very loud noise is the most common cause of sensorineural hearing loss followed by aging (presbycusis).
Correctly fitted hearing aids stimulate the affected nerves in the inner ear and fill in the Sound Voids that most sufferers experience. Certain medications and health conditions such as diabetes and heart disease are also known causes of sensorineural hearing loss.


Today’s hearing aid technology can even address ‘high-frequency’ sensorineural hearing losses that were once thought to be un-treatable. A healthy diet and regular exercise are a must to prevent the onset of heart disease and other medical problems that are also identified with hearing loss.
