18 Aug Hear In Halifax – Point Pleasant Park
The prevention of Hearing Loss is yet another reason to pursue a Healthy Lifestyle.
Presbycusis, or age-related hearing loss, is a well-known phenomenon but there is a great deal of variation in hearing abilities among older adults. This variation may be in part due to the difference in cardiovascular health in this population. Good cardiovascular health is associated with better hearing and recent studies have found that individuals over the age of 50 with good cardiovascular health have better hearing sensitivity than those with poor cardiovascular health. Fitness levels may act to preserve hearing sensitivity as we age.
Point Pleasant Park is a popular recreational spot for Haligonians, as it hosts many walking and running trails year round. Whether you’re looking for a leisurely stroll through this historic site or sprinting through its beautiful wooded trails, the park offers a great way to enjoy the outdoors and get active!
Hearing can be impacted by many different factors and living a healthy lifestyle, including routine Hearing Tests, can contribute to the prevention of hearing loss later in life.
