The ear provides you with the ability to hear and provides you with balance. The external ear is composed of the tympanic membrane, external acoustic meatus and auricle. The middle ear contains the tympanic cavity that consists of muscles and auditory ossicles. The internal ear, or vestibulocochlear organ, contains the bony labyrinth (vestibule, cochlea and semicircular canals), cochlear and vestibular labyrinths.
A direct blow to the ear can end up causing you to suffer with hearing loss due to a ruptured eardrum. This often happens when hit abruptly from another vehicle, thus causing your head to hit into the window or vehicle itself. Words and tones start to become muffled and you struggle to hear what others are saying around you. This can significantly impact your life and make it difficult for you to do the things that you once did.
