What is a concussion?
Facial Palsy or Bell’s Palsy is a type of facial paralysis or weakness that results in the inability to control the facial muscles on one side of your face. The paralysis is caused by an insult to the facial nerve, cranial nerve # 7 and is most likely a virus. Symptoms can vary from mild to severe and can include: difficulty smiling, puckering, eating, closing affected eye, raising eyebrows, and puffing cheeks. Usually, these patients present with one side of their face drooping.
The good news is this can be helped through the correct prescription of advanced manual therapy, therapeutic exercises, and possibly facial muscle stimulation.
