Bell’s Palsy is a condition marked by temporary facial paralysis due to damage done to the facial nerves. This condition disrupts the facial nerve function so that messages from the brain cannot reach the appropriate muscles. Every year 40,000 people are affected in the US.
Studies show chiropractic is a very effective treatment for those with Bell’s Palsy and results are seen almost immediately. Since this condition causes immobility, your chiropractor will focus on restoring this movement and mobility. Safe, chiropractic adjustments are performed to the cervical spine to restore connection to the brain. Once this connection is restored, the pressure on the nerve will lessen and oxygen and blood supply will be restored.
