Deafness and Hearing Loss

There can be various ways for an individual to experience hearing loss; this can result from disease, head trauma, or excessive use of loud speakers among other ways. While there are various diseases and ailments that can result in hearing loss, there is one very crucial cause for hearing loss that you must know about: head trauma. Head trauma can be caused by a car accident, a fall or falling object among other ways and can be extremely detrimental in more ways than one.

Causes of Hearing Loss Due to Brain Injury

One common result of head trauma is a loss of hearing. After sustaining head trauma or traumatic brain injury, an individual may have sustained direct damage to the ear or ear drum in which case hearing would be damaged or impaired. Additionally, hearing loss and damage to the ear can be done by secondary damage from bleeding, inflammation and other effects. While hearing loss cannot be reversed, you and your doctor can discuss your options to improve what you hear.
