Hearing loss, also known as hearing impairment, is a partial or total inability to hear. It may occur in one or both ears. It may be caused by a number of factors, including: genetics, ageing, exposure to noise, some infections, birth complications, trauma to the ear, and certain medications or toxins. Sometimes a sudden dramatic emotion such as sadness or anger can cause hearing loss too.
Acupuncture is very effective in stimulating the auditory nerve to improve hearing for whose with hearing loss.
