Abstract

The objective of this report was to determine the improvement of Bell’s palsy patient after combination therapy of electrical muscle stimulation and neural mobilisation technique. : Bells palsy is a gradual occurrence of clinical symptoms because of seventh cranial nerve involvement. Steroids are preferred treatment of choice in this condition for initial stages. These medications are dangerous for people having previously existing problems like hypertension, diabetes mellitus, cancer etc. : A 32- year old woman with asymmetry on her right side of her face. The patient was given 20 sessions of neural mobilization and electrical muscle stimulation for 45 minutes, 5 days a week, for 4 weeks along with daily physical therapy. She was assessed with house brackmann facial grading system during initial assessment and compared with the grading at the end of 20th session. Similarly, pain was recorded and compared during the baseline assessment and post assessment of patient. A follow up at 6th week was scheduledThe patient depicted improvement in both the outcome measures. The scores were measured on house brackmann facial grading system as grade I and 0/10 on Visual analogue scale.Neural facial mobilisation approach is a new and effective method to improve the flexibility of facial nerve and in recovery of Bell’s palsy.
