Treating Bells Palsy
How It Works
Find a physical therapist / medical massage therapist who can work on exercising and manipulating the nerves for several hours a week. After months of suffering and looking for answers, this was what worked for me – within a couple of weeks it allowed me to be able to sleep and sit in front of a computer again and began to get my life back, including being able to get back to work and be a good mom to my newborn child.

The day after giving birth to my third child I woke up with a strange switching in my left cheek. By the next morning that side of my face was completely paralyzed including my eye- with no ability to close it even during sleep. I quickly met with a neurologist who diagnosed me with Bells Palsy and told me that it should recover on its own within 3 weeks to a 1 year. After 3 months, terrible eye pain, no improvement and multiple calls to the neurologist inquiring about alternative solutions, I became extremely discouraged, depressed and upset that I would never get better. I couldn't believe that there wasn't anything I could do to improve my condition so I started on my own personal mission to find answers. I tried various alternative methods with no luck until I found a medical massage therapist through a friend who worked on exercising and manipulating the nerves for several hours a week. Within a few weeks of working with him I was able to sleep and sit in front of a computer again and began to get my life back, including being able to get back to work and be a good mom to my newborn child. For anyone who may go through a similar circumstance, I'd suggest trying this method or finding a physical therapist who performs similar functions on the onset of getting Bells Palsy, It could save you many months of suffering and can get to the nerve damage right away before it spreads and experiences atrophy.
