How Hearing Works
When sound waves enter the ear canal, the waves cause the eardrum to vibrate. This vibration causes tiny bones in the middle ear to move (hammer, anvil, stirrup). As the sound progresses along the chain of bones, it moves to the inner ear (cochlea) and fluid in the cochlea moves. Nerves then send the sound to the brain. Find out more here.

Types of Hearing Loss
Did you know that there are three types of hearing loss? They are sensorineural hearing loss, conductive hearing loss and mixed hearing loss. Sensorineural hearing loss occurs when there is a problem with the cochlea of the inner ear. Conductive hearing loss may be due to a blockage in the ear canal, an injury, infection or fluid in the ear and may be temporary or permanent. Mixed hearing loss is a combination of sensorineural and conductive hearing loss. Learn more here.
