Our Audiologist will help you choose the style that best fits your ear, hearing loss, and lifestyle. Available options include behind the ear hearing aids with custom molds, custom fit in the ear hearing aids, and mini behind the ear hearing aids that use an “open fit” design to allow for a natural sound quality & cosmetically appealing design.
Many hearing aids have a connection to a smartphone, this way the hearing aid user can change the volume, program settings, stream phone calls or music, and connect to other wireless enabled devices in the home. Breakthroughs in technology have allowed for the ability to understand speech more clearly when in noisy environments. Many devices have treatment options for tinnitus (ringing, buzzing, or hissing in the ears.)
We highly recommend Fyzical’s licensed Audiologist, instead of a Hearing Aid Specialist.
One key difference between an Audiologist and a “Hearing Aid Specialist” is the minimum amount of education required. Audiologists currently earn a Doctor of Audiology, or Au.D. By contrast, few educational requirements need to be met (they vary by state) before a non-audiologist (Hearing Aid Specialist) can sell hearing aids; in fact, in many states, the minimum requirement is a high school diploma, passing a license exam, and some form of brief apprenticeship.
Another major difference between an Audiologist and a Hearing Aid Specialist lies within their scopes of practice. Audiologists are health care professionals who are trained to evaluate hearing loss and related disorders, including balance (vestibular) disorders and tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and to rehabilitate individuals with hearing loss and related disorders. The scope of practice for Hearing Aid Specialists is limited to basic hearing tests just for the purpose of selling hearing aids and their fitting.
“When I first started at Fyzical I was recovering from fractured tibia. I was using a walker after having been in a wheelchair for about 3 months. I was able to graduate to a cane and now an able to go without the cane around the house or short distances. I only use the cane when walking longer distances. The staff at Fyzical are all very caring and professional. They are friendly and encouraging."

“When I first went to therapy my foot hurt so bad I could barely walk on it. This limited the things I could so and made my job at work difficult to do. After six weeks of therapy I am able to walk with little to no pain. Thank to Everyone at Fyzical."

“Went from bad pain in shoulder to no pain at all. I’m very satisfied with everything."

“I highly recommend Krysta @ FYZICAL. After my surgery I thought I would go to PT a couple times & figure out what I could do at home to get back to normal. I was wrong. Krysta helped me to get my range of motion back and helped my big scar disappear. It was easy to schedule appointments. "

“I came in with severe sciatica pain I’ve been dealing with it for years and my chiropractor was unable to solve. By the end of my first visit I was walking again with little pain. I’ve returned to a normal daily routine. I wish I would have come to FYZICAL years ago!"

“I arrived at Fyzical with a whole host of diagnoses for my hip pain (from prior PT). Shannon at Fyzical diagnosed quickly and had me feeling better than I had in months! Very Thankful!!"

“When I first came in I was so Dizzy I wasn’t able to walk straight and was so bad I was also having trouble sleeping. After the first treatment I was better. The staff has been wonderful and has been very concerned with my wellbeing. I’m a true success story!
— Mona R.
“I had quite a bit of pain in the beginning had trouble with pretty much everything I did. Sleeping, sitting, and exercising. I found Fyzical, these people made me feel almost like new again. Thank you so much to Andra, she saved me. Amazing Place!"

“I am a 15 year old football, basketball, and track player at the Millard West who hurt my knee and over the last couple months therapy here has gone super will and the people here are super nice!"
— Joe B.
“I had rotator cuff surgery in the spring. Following that surgery my shoulder was very weak and I was unable to move it without pain. I began me therapy with Fyzical and was amazed at how quickly my quality of movement improved with their help. I am now able to move with almost complete range of movement and have most of my strength back. I honestly believe I could not have attained this in less than 6 months with the staff at Fyzical."
