Bell's Palsy

Bell's Palsy
Bell’s Palsy is a type of facial paralysis that affects the ability to control the muscles on one side of the face. Most people (70%) who suffer from Bell’s Palsy are only affected temporarily and will fully recover from the condition within weeks to months. While there is no specific cause of Bell’s Palsy, it is mostly contributed to a viral reactivation in the facial nerve. Some people who suffer from a viral infection are left with the virus hibernating in the facial nerve nucleus.
