2. Down the Volume
A great deal of hearing loss cases is caused by volume damage. When the volume of what the ears have to deal with gets too high, this can cause permanent hearing loss, and often comes with associated symptoms such as nausea and tinnitus.
Sometimes these injuries occur in a work (usually industrial) setting where people are subjected to very large amounts of noise – sometimes with protection for the hearing, though oftentimes without. It can happen to people who work on construction sites, people who work in kitchens and anyone who works in a loud environment that’s too much for your ears to handle – and yes, musicians and bar staff are on this list, too.
Save your hearing and prevent hearing loss by turning the volume down where you can, or wearing the proper necessary hearing guards when you can’t. See your doctor if you experience any pain or discomfort.
