Is there an association between hearing loss and physical activity?

A recent study on adults aged 60-69 years old found that hearing loss was associated with a worse activity profile, including less moderate-to-vigorous physical activity, less light-intensity activity and a more fragmented activity pattern.

Of 291 participants, 16.5% had mild hearing loss, and 7.6% had moderate or greater hearing loss. Hearing loss was significantly associated with less physical activity.

Promoting physical activity in older adults is important. Further research is needed to find if hearing loss interventions could improve health profiles.
