Commonly seen causes of facial palsy include:

  • Bell’s Palsy (80% of cases)
  • Ramsay Hunt Syndrome
  • Post operative acoustic neuroma removal

Physiotherapist Tanya Legrand will carry out an assessment of your face at rest and when moving.  If your face is drooping, advice can be given for eye and mouth care, use of tape to support the face and early treatment can be started using Trophic Electrical Stimulation (TES).

If your face is showing signs of synkineses which is when your face muscles are all moving at once ie when you yawn or eat your eye closes, treatment may in addition include biofeedback, passive stretches and exercise.
