Boca Raton Specific Chiropractic May Help Bells Palsy Symptoms

 

According to WebMD:

 

Bell's Palsy is a neurological condition that usually affects the facial nerve. Symptoms may include paralysis on  the side of the face and give a face drooping effect. 

 

Bell's palsy is a paralysis or weakness of the muscles on one side of your face. Damage to the facial nerve that controls muscles on one side of the face causes that side of your face to droop . The nerve damage may also affect your sense of taste and how you make tears and saliva. This condition comes on suddenly, often overnight, and usually gets better on its own within a few weeks.

 

Bell's palsy is not the result of a stroke or a transient ischemic attack (TIA). While stroke and TIA can cause facial paralysis, there is no link between Bell's palsy and either of these conditions. But sudden weakness that occurs on one side of your face should be checked by a doctor right away to rule out these more serious causes.

 

While Specific Chiropractic does not directly treat Bell's palsy,  it may help increase your ability to overcome these symptoms by decreasing stress to your nervous system and improving overall function.
