The pathway to the most effective hearing loss solution starts with accurate and complete diagnostic testing. Shelby Hearing Center’s doctorate-level audiologist, Dr. Kay Young, possesses the highest level of expertise, coupled with decades of clinical experience and the latest diagnostic technologies, to precisely determine the nature and extent of your hearing loss.
Dr. Young also understands that hearing involves more than your ears — your brain and nerves also play a critical role. Consideration of all these factors enables her to arrive at a clear understanding of your unique hearing needs and what it will take to help you hear to your fullest potential.
At Shelby Hearing Center, we take the time to equip you with strategies that help you obtain the greatest benefit from your hearing aids, as well as enhancing your communications with others. Because hearing involves more than your ears, our services include “auditory retraining therapy,” which focuses on improving the listening ability of your brain. In addition, we can talk to you about assistive listening technologies that complement the performance of your hearing aids in specific situations.
Our long-term commitment to your satisfaction is reflected in our aftercare services. Following your initial fitting, we’ll perform any necessary modifications or fine tuning to make sure that your hearing aids are functioning according to specifications. We’ll also provide regular “clean and checks” to protect your investment in better hearing. Whatever the need, whether it involves your hearing aids or your hearing, the experienced staff of Shelby Hearing Center are ready to meet or exceed your expectations.
Tinnitus is commonly called “ringing in the ears.” However, tinnitus sufferers often describe the sound in their head as humming, buzzing, roaring, clicking, whistling, hissing, static, screeching, cricket-like chirps, pulsing, ocean waves, dial tones and even music. Causes include exposure to loud noise, the aging process, head injuries and a reaction to some drugs. Tinnitus often occurs with a hearing loss.
In most cases, there is no cure for tinnitus. However, we can help many individuals find relief through various treatment methods, such as therapy, counseling and tinnitus masking devices. Certain sophisticated hearing aids come with a special tinnitus masker feature, designed to be used as part of a comprehensive tinnitus therapy program.
