Bell’s Palsy is an issue with the Trigeminal Nerve that activates the muscles on one side of the face. Bell’s palsy, while can be seen on either side of the face at any time, rarely affects both sides at the same time unless both trigeminal nerves are being affected. It is possible but rare to have it repeatedly. In the clinic setting, Dr. Hillebrand has treated Physical Therapy patients between 13 and 82 years old with the average age being in the 40s.
Dizziness is a term used to describe a range of feelings of lightheadedness, unsteadiness, or a spinning sensation. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including certain medical conditions, medications, psychiatric disorders, and more.
Some of the most common causes of dizziness include low blood pressure, dehydration, inner ear problems, and anxiety or panic disorders. Other potential causes can involve anything that affects the balance center of the brain, such as head injuries, migraines, or certain viruses.
Symptoms of dizziness can include feeling faint, lightheaded, or unsteady; feeling like the room is spinning; and feeling like you might pass out. In some cases, dizziness can also be accompanied by other symptoms like nausea, sweating, or ringing in the ears.

Plantar fasciitis is a condition characterized by pain and inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of the foot, connecting the heel bone to the toes. The plantar fascia supports the arch of the foot and absorbs shock when walking, running, or jumping. Physical Therapy can greatly improve these issues in 3-4 weeks even if you have had pain for years.
