Why should you have your ears checked on a regular basis?
Assess – Clean - Educate
Our hearing is the second most important sense in our body. Your hearing helps you with everyday tasks such as following conversation, hearing important alarms and the enjoyment of the environment around you.
Factors like balance should also be considered; When your ears are not functioning properly you could potentially experience an array of symptoms which could include dizziness or vertigo, hearing loss (temporarily or permanent) and even speech delay, to name a few. Your hearing plays a really big role in your day-to-day productivity therefore it is advised to have your ears checked regularly.
In the case where ear wax has fully impacted the ear canal, the wax should be softened prior to the wax removal procedure. Ask the ear clinician for the best advice as to how you can help make the process of ear wax removal easier and potentially less painful for you. An ear wax softener like olive oil applied 2-3 days prior to your appointment is a safe and highly recommended way to help do this.
