Great Lives Often Lead to a Hearing Loss

Your journey to better hearing is like the Space Race in the 1960’s. It took more than a rocket to put a man on the moon. Apollo 11 required the knowledge and commitment of NASA scientists and engineers. 

At Alabama Hearing Associates, we know that the right technology combined with the right audiologist makes all the difference! 

Hearing loss creates a barrier to good communication, causing the brain to work overtime trying to understand speech. Our goal is to reconnect you to the people you need to hear, so that you can continue to meet your personal goals and live your best life.

How We Can Help

Comprehensive Hearing Evaluations

When Was The Last Time That You Had A Hearing Evaluation?

Hearing loss can affect anyone, at any point in life, and can be triggered by a number of biological and environmental factors.

It is important to catch hearing loss and begin treatment as early as possible. Early identification improves long term outcomes.

That is why we’re passionate about raising awareness of the first signs of hearing loss in our local community. Regular hearing evaluations are just as important as regular dental cleaning and eye exams.

Advanced Hearing Technology

The Latest Hearing Technology

Our community knows better than most what can be achieved when you combine technology with human intelligence and persistence. It is much the same with hearing technology.

Hearing aids are a critical part of your hearing journey, but hearing aids cannot fit and program themselves. Our methodical, evidence-based approach to hearing healthcare is the key to your desired outcome.

Our Treatment Plans combine audiological best practices with a variety of hearing aid options. When you’re ready to reconnect with family, friends and colleagues, we have a plan for you.

TELEAUDIOLOGY CARE

Remote Care Through Teleaudiology

We are the first audiologists in North Alabama to offer ‘Teleaudiology’ to our community and beyond.

Using your Smart Phone, Tablet or PC, you can receive support, get guidance and speak to a professional without travel or time away from work.

This makes caring for your hearing easier and more convenient than ever before.

Basic Hearing Test

A basic hearing test begins with an air conduction test. You will be seated in a soundproof booth and single-use, foam earphones will be inserted into your ear canals. The Audiologist will ask you to push a button or raise your hand when you barely hear a series of beeps (tones) presented at various frequencies (pitches) to obtain your air conduction thresholds.

To determine whether your hearing loss is a conductive (mechanical) loss, sensorineural (permanent) loss or combination of the two, we perform a bone conduction test.  

For this test, a head band is place on the bone behind one of the ears to obtain your bone conduction thresholds. This process provides a different form of sound transmission using vibration, which bypasses the eardrum and the middle ear bones and directly stimulates the auditory nerve. When you hear the beeps/tones, you will push a button or raise your hand.

If bone conduction thresholds are better than air conduction thresholds (through the foam inserts), you have a conductive hearing loss. This suggests a problem with the mechanical structures (moving parts) of the ears.

Conductive hearing loss is often a medically treatable condition for which we will provide you with a referral to an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) physician. However, if bone and air conduction thresholds match, it indicates a sensorineural hearing loss (permanent), and the treatment will likely involve hearing aids.
