Bell’s Palsy

Regaining Facial Movement and Confidence: Physiotherapy for Bell's Palsy at Medace Clinic

Bell’s palsy is a condition that causes sudden weakness or paralysis of the muscles on one side of the face. This can lead to facial drooping, difficulty smiling or closing one eye, and speech problems. While the cause of Bell’s palsy remains unknown, it can be a frightening and frustrating experience. At Medace Clinic, we understand the challenges you face. Our team of experienced physiotherapists offers personalized physiotherapy programs to help you regain facial movement, improve facial symmetry, and restore your confidence.


Understanding Bell’s Palsy:

Bell’s palsy affects the facial nerve, which controls the muscles on one side of your face. This can cause:

  • Facial drooping or weakness on one side, making it difficult to smile or frown.
  • Drooping eyelid and difficulty closing one eye.
  • Drooling from the affected side of the mouth.
  • Changes in taste perception.
  • Facial pain or discomfort.


Recovery from Bell’s Palsy:

Most people with Bell’s palsy recover fully, often within a few weeks or months. Physiotherapy plays a crucial role in this recovery process.

Benefits of Physiotherapy for Bell’s Palsy:

Physiotherapy offers a safe and effective approach to managing Bell’s palsy and promoting facial nerve recovery. Here are some key benefits:

  • Improved Facial Movement: Exercises designed to re-educate and strengthen the facial muscles can help regain control and improve facial expressions.
  • Reduced Facial Drooping: Techniques like facial massage and neuromuscular retraining can help improve muscle tone and reduce facial drooping.
  • Enhanced Facial Symmetry: Physiotherapy can help achieve a more symmetrical appearance by addressing muscle weakness on the affected side.
  • Management of Facial Pain: Techniques like manual therapy and modalities can help manage pain and discomfort associated with Bell’s palsy.
  • Scar Tissue Management: In some cases, physiotherapy can help prevent or minimize scar tissue formation, which can restrict facial movement.


Physiotherapy Treatment for Bell’s Palsy at Medace Clinic:

Our physiotherapists will conduct a comprehensive evaluation to assess the severity of your Bell’s palsy and your facial muscle weakness. This may involve a physical examination, discussing your symptoms, and observing your facial movements. Based on the assessment, they will design a personalized treatment plan that may include:

  • Facial exercises: These exercises help retrain and strengthen weakened facial muscles, improving facial expressions like smiling, frowning, and blinking.
  • Massage: Gentle facial massage techniques can improve blood circulation, reduce muscle tension, and promote healing.
  • Neuromuscular retraining: Techniques that stimulate the facial nerve and re-establish the connection between the nerve and muscles can enhance muscle function.
  • Modalities: Ultrasound or electrical stimulation may be used to reduce pain and inflammation, and promote nerve healing.
  • Education: Our therapists will educate you on facial exercises you can perform at home to support your recovery and prevent complications.

I had visited Medace Clinic in Kothanur for my Tennis Elbow issue in my right hand. I was recommended for Physiotherapy treatment. I underwent this treatment for 4 days in the clinic (daily visit for treatment) and was given few exercises to be done at home post that. I got a huge relief from this treatment. The Physiotherapist was very good. She had a good knowledge and was able to get to the exact pain and provided the treatment. My pain has reduced drastically and I am able to do the daily activities without any pain now. Will be joining back to gym as well in 4 to 5 days.

We consulted Dr. Geetika throughout my wife’s pregnancy. Without question, she is a gem of a person, soft spoken and very down to earth. The best thing about her is that you can message her with the slightest doubt on WhatsApp and she is available to respond. She will take the time to listen to you and provide you with the most effective advice to address your current situation and prevent future issues. She is very very easy to talk to. Never prescribed us any unnecessary tests or medicines. She guided us in detail at every step week after week, month after month. We are so happy and proud for having done this journey with her.
Dr. Noel Kumar at Medace Clinic is an exceptional doctor who truly cares about his patients. He has been treating my todler son for the past three months, he has recovered from his femur fracture completely and I have seen a remarkable improvement in his condition. His expertise in the field is very evident in the way he diagnosed, operated and provided post operative care. Dr. Noel takes the time to explain everything in detail and answer any questions we have. He is always available to address our concerns and provide us with the best possible care. The clinic is well-equipped and staffed by friendly professionals who go above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr. Noel and Medace Clinic to anyone looking for quality orthopedic care.
