Types of Hearing Loss

When the vibrations of sound waves are not being transferred from the outer to the inner ear.

This can be caused by many different things including;
  • excessive ear wax build up 
  • damaged ossicles (the tiny bones in the middle ear),
  • a perforated ear drums,
  • or even a defective ear drum.
Meaning there is a dysfunction in the inner ear system, cochlea, or the  auditory nerve. 

Long term exposure to loud noise especially in the high- frequency range are a common reason for sensorineural loss.

This is a combination of conductive and sensorineural hearing loss.

It shows damage in both the outer and inner ear systems.

This can be caused by a variety of different things including exposure to loud sound, some medications, and even regular ageing.
