Bell’s palsy is a condition that results in paralysis of the facial nerve. Bell’s palsy is a type of nerve paralysis that affects cranial nerve VII that supplies the facial nerve and muscles of the face.
The cause of this condition is not fully understood but it is known to be due to inflammation and compression of the facial nerve.
Treatments that are offered at Vitality Health Medical include physical therapy modalities and acupuncture to help reduce inflammation and restore normal function of this cranial nerve.
Chiropractic treatment addresses the alignment of the spine in the neck and upper back to reduce nerve interference in structures within close proximity to the facial nerve.
Vitality Health Medical provides you with the experience of our Chiropractor, Physical Therapist, Acupuncturist, Massage Therapist and Medical Doctor who will correctly identify the cause of pain and symptoms.
