Blocked Ears Remuera
Assessment and treatment for ear infections in Remuera
Ear infections of the ear canal is a common health problem, especially prevalent amongst young children, outdoor swimmers and surfers, and those who suffer from upper respiratory tract infections. They can be caused by a range of factors including water trapped in the ear canal after swimming and overly vigorous cleaning of the ears. If you or your child frequently get ear infections, and you/your primary care physician suspect this may be due to harsh cleaning, then you may benefit from professional assessment and treatment for blocked ears in Remuera at The Ear Clinic.
At The Ear Clinic we provide microsuction treatment, which safely and gently yet effectively clears wax, small foreign objects and outer ear infections. Administered by specially trained nurses, it can be a good option for those suffering from persistently blocked ears who wish to avoid these kinds of ear infections. Because it works by suction, not pressure/chemicals (unlike other methods such as water jets and picks), there is no damage to the ear itself. The microsuction instrument is finely calibrated and there is no ‘blind’ application – the nurse can always see the area that is being treated. This makes it more precise and targeted than other treatment options.
Our Remeura location is in Bloom Hearing, in the One Health Building at 122 Remuera Road. Appointments are available on Wednesdays. Alternatively, for patients who are immobile and cannot come in to a clinic, we offer in home visits – please see our Services page for details.
