Dr. Greenspan believes everyone deserves the improved quality of life that comes with better hearing. Our patient care is unique to every individual and reflects our professional and personal concern for all our patients.
"Better hearing may keep your brain healthy! We all know that our ears and brain work closely together. The brain is constantly receiving and decoding the electrical signals sent from the inner ears to deliver the sounds we hear.
Hearing has a lot to do with keeping our brains healthy. According to the Better Hearing Institute, recent research has found that seniors with hearing loss are significantly more likely to develop dementia over time than those who retain hearing.
Challenging your brain with new activities can help fight decline in cognitive ability. Under this principle we can assume the more sounds your brain processes, new and familiar, the better it functions. When you use your hearing aids, you're giving your brain the stimulation it needs to keep it active.
Untreated hearing loss can lead to social isolation and depression - both known risk factors for dementia and other cognitive disorders. It stands to reason that if you take care of your hearing loss, you will lower your risk factors for cognitive decline. Studies suggest that the use of hearing aids is associated with reductions in anger, anxiety, and paranoia. In fact, many people who use hearing aids have improved social lives.
There is still much for us to learn about the relationship between healthy hearing and a healthy brain. But one thing is certain—regular hearing checks and using hearing aids when possible can only do you good!"
