Can sensorineural  hearing loss be caused by head trauma? (Hitting head in car accident)
Sensorineural hearing loss may be genetic or acquired (i.e. as a consequence of disease, noise, trauma, etc.). People may have a hearing loss from birth (congenital) or the hearing loss may come on later. Many cases are related to old age (age-related).
In a nutshell, it can be caused by head trauma.
What can you do for this. To hear better.
People with sensorineural hearing loss cannot regain their hearing, but most people can benefit from hearing aids.  A more severe or profound sensorineural hearing loss can be treated with hearing implants. A few cases of sensorineural hearing loss can be (partly) treated by means of an operation.
A hearing test carried out by a hearing professional will detect if you have a sensorineural hearing loss.
