Earwax Removal Clinic To Open In Stowmarket
Those in the Stowmarket area experiencing blocked ears will no longer have to experience long waiting times, or long journeys, to seek relief thanks to a new earwax removal clinic being launched by The Hearing Care Centre at StowHealth on Violet Hill Road, in addition to its already established audiology clinic.
It is estimated that 3.5% of the UK population have problems each year with earwax sufficient to need intervention. This equates to around 1,000 people in the Stowmarket area alone. Earwax build up is not only uncomfortable, but it can also delay assessment and management of hearing loss. Hearing loss caused by impacted wax can be frustrating and stressful, leading to social isolation and depression if untreated.
Karen Finch, senior audiologist and founder of The Hearing Care Centre, said: “There is a real demand for a private earwax removal service in this area. Our specialist team, all certified healthcare professionals, allow sufficient time with each patient to remove wax in a safe and gentle way. They also provide a video image of the ear canal before and after the treatment.”
This new clinic at StowHealth will be held once fortnightly on a Friday from August 28, offering both micro-suction and ear irrigation methods. For more information call 01473 230330 or visit: www.hearingcarecentre.co.uk/earwax
