What is Bell’s Palsy?

May 26, 2022

Bell’s Palsy differs from a stroke due to Bell’s Palsy only affects the motor function of the face while a stroke typically has additional neurological symptoms like dizziness, confusion, symptoms in the arms or legs, etc. If you have any doubt, always treat the onset of any neurological symptoms like the sudden loss of muscle function like an emergency and call your doctor.

Bell’s Palsy can be caused by stress or viral infection and is usually treated with anti-viral and steroid medications.

Dr. Hillebrand has treated over 400 individuals with Bell’s palsy in his career. He uses a simple set of exercises combined with Indiba treatments, softwave treatments, and muscle stem with dry needling to improve motor function in those individuals who do not recover within the traditional three weeks.

His average patient demonstrates a 60% improvement within the first two weeks. The average time from when a patient develops Bell’s palsy to when he sees the patient is about 2 1/2 weeks. These patients are often slow and regain their function. Many patients he sees have not responded well to the medication.
