Facial Nerve Paralysis
Facial Paralysis - What Happens Next?
With the help of suitable diagnostic methods we can determine:
- What caused it?
- Where has the nerve been damaged?
- Is the nerve only irritated or properly damaged?
- When is it likely for the nerve to function properly again?
- Could it become chronic?
Depending on the diagnosis, we are then going to suggest suitable therapies.
- Admission to hospital, if necessary
- Infusion therapy (modified Stennert-scheme), which leads to relieving the nerve
- Vitamin B12-complex
- Additional neurological examinations
- Antibiotics or virostatic agent
- Supporting physiotherapy and exercise instructions
An Alternative for a Chronic Form
Since 2012 there is another procedure to treat the facial nerve paralysis, apart from plastic-surgical treatments. This procedure combines various concepts of physiotherapy, psychology and behavioural medicine.
