Can You Hear the Sweet Sounds of Spring?
What do these three sounds have in common?
The thump of a perfect pitch hitting a catcher’s mitt
Robins and mourning doves singing at sunrise
The quiet slosh of waves on a lake
If they made you think of spring, you might be from Michigan!
Spring is magical in Michigan! From the first robin sighting to the first spring bulbs blooming, there is so much to see and hear after the dull colors and the quiet of winter. Hearing the first birds in the spring is a sign of warmer days ahead and all that summer can bring. For some, spring means the Detroit Tiger’s Opening Day, and that loud whack of the bat. If you’re a fan, you can tell by the sound when that ball is on its way out of the park. A solid hit just sounds different than a foul ball, doesn’t it?
Maybe you love Michigan summers more. Depending on where you live, there might be frogs and crickets chirping in the evening, music festivals and art fairs, or dogs barking and children playing. You might also hear the buzz of boat motors or the quiet hum of a golf cart. And then there’s the never-ending sound of road construction! Annoying, but definitely a familiar summer sound to Michiganders.
Every season has its own soundtrack, but what if you can’t hear your favorite sounds anymore? You might need to get your ears checked.
You might not even think about how important your hearing is in everyday moments – like the first robin you hear in the spring. After all, hearing loss can creep up on you so slowly you don’t really notice – until you do notice. Then you’re suddenly aware of everything you’re missing.
At CCMC Hearing Care, we want you to hear what you’ve been missing!
If you’re missing out on the sounds of your day-to-day life, you’re not alone. In fact, nearly 48 million Americans have some form of hearing loss. It becomes more common with age, yet many people don’t seek treatment.
It’s estimated that over 28 million adults in the United States could improve their hearing with hearing aids (but don’t). Are you one of them? We can help you answer that question and find the right treatment. Hearing aids aren’t right for everybody, but they aren’t the only treatment for hearing loss. Our hearing care specialists can diagnose your hearing loss and help you understand the causes, treatment options, and steps you can take to improve your quality of life. The first step is to get your ears checked.
