Bell’s Palsy Treatment in Borivali
Initial treatment is steroids and Antivirals. However, they do not provide complete recovery. The weakness of facial muscles persists for which physiotherapy is required.
Facial Exercises: Numerous face and eye exercises are taught to the patients by Dr. K.K Mishra to be done at home. Exercises will help to strengthen the specific muscles of the face and should be done 4-5 times a day.
Electrical Stimulation: Another method of physiotherapy treatment for facial paralysis is using electrical stimulation. Unlike facial exercises that you mostly perform at home, you will need to visit the Sanjeevani physiotherapy clinic for electrical stimulation.
Electrical stimulation uses small amounts of electricity to activate the muscles in your face. This causes your muscles to twitch as if electrical impulses from your brain activated them. During the stages of Bell ’s palsy when your face is most paralyzed, this may be the only way for you to activate these facial muscles.
Manual Massage: Massage for bells palsy can be performed in conjunction with other treatment options.
