Falling & Hearing Loss

Hearing Loss Linked to Three-Fold Risk of Falling – Study Done by John Hopkins Researcher

Falling & Hearing Loss

Hearing loss has been linked with a variety of medical, social and cognitive ills, including dementia. However, a new study led by a Johns Hopkins research suggests that hearing loss may also be a risk factor for another huge public health problem: falls.

The finding could help researchers develop new ways to prevent falls, especially in the elderly, and their resulting injuries that generate billions in health care costs in the United States each year, by some estimates.

The Hearing Rehabilitation Center can perform a comprehensive hearing test evaluating for even mild losses of hearing.
