New York Treatments for Bell’s Palsy
Dr. Teresa O is a specialist when it comes to diagnosing and managing specific forms of facial paralysis. Each one is unique and requires a special approach to care.
One of the most common paralysis disorders that we see in our New York office is Bell’s Palsy. This condition is associated with an asymmetrical paralysis where one side of the face droops and the other does not. It can also make it difficult to close your eyes. Most people recover from Bell’s Palsy within a few days to a few months. This is likely because the condition is usually associated with a virus, allowing symptoms to gradually subside on their own. In rare situations, permanent paralysis is known to occur.
Dr. O will work with you to create a customized care plan that assesses the severity of your unique case of Bell’s Palsy facial paralysis. This may include everything from antiviral medications to steroids and physical therapy. We understand how frustrating it can be, and are committed to working with you to find the most effective solution.
