Hearing Aid Repair

Hearing devices are used about 16 hours a day, 7 days a week. With that amount of use, it’s important to keep them well maintained and functioning properly. At Uhring’s, we offer full hearing device cleanings and adjustments so that you are able to get the most out of your hearing investment.

If something does happen to your hearing devices, bring them in! We are able to repair all the major hearing device brands right in our office.

We also back our EarQ hearing devices with the EarQ 4-Year Warranty. This warranty gives you extra protection and peace of mind so you can focus on the things that matter most in life.

Tinnitus

Tinnitus is when a person hears sounds that are not actually present in the environment. People with tinnitus most commonly refer to it as a ringing in the ears, but it can also be perceived as whooshing, buzzing, or hissing. There are over 50 million Americans who are affected by tinnitus.

Tinnitus can be temporary or permanent and can present itself continuously or intermittently. There are a variety of factors that can cause tinnitus, and some of the most common are:

  • Noise-induced hearing damage
  • Damage to the inner ear
  • Head or neck trauma
  • Stress
  • Impacted earwax

Currently, there is no known cure for tinnitus. However, there are many options available to help reduce the effects and manage tinnitus, including:

  • Reducing levels of stress and anxiety
  • Improving your diet and eating healthier.
  • Having your hearing tested yearly.
  • Wearing certain hearing devices that come with a tinnitus masking feature.

If you believe you are experiencing tinnitus, contact us. We can help you determine the degree and the best approach to managing it.

Auditory Processing Disorder Diagnosis and Treatment

Auditory processing disorder (APD), also known as central auditory processing disorder (CAPD), is a complex problem that limits the way people process the information they hear. There is a disconnect between the ears and the brain, and a breakdown in receiving, remembering, understanding, and using auditory information. In other words, the brain can’t hear.

Symptoms include:

  • Difficulties with reading, spelling and phonics
  • Grades that do not reflect the time or effort exerted
  • Frustrations with hearing in noisy environments
  • Difficulties with multiple-step directions or memory
  • Challenges understanding the intent of a joke or sarcasm

APD is often missed or misdiagnosed as attention deficit disorder, and can prevent children from learning effectively, as they cannot hear individual words and have a slow processing speed.

But APD does not affect children alone. Symptoms can occur at any age. Dr. Uhring suggests APD screening for two types of people:

  • Children who are working hard in school but still struggling
  • Those of any age who’ve had a head trauma, memory issues, or difficulty multitasking in auditory situations

It’s Time to Get More Out of Life

The Oticon More is a new perspective in hearing care. This hearing aid is designed to work more like the brain does because it learned through experience. Using On-board Deep Neural Network (DNN) the Oticon More gives the brain more of the information it needs to make sense of sounds, even in the most complex listening environments.
