Bells Palsy is a dysfunction of one of the facial nerves called the cranial VII resulting in the inability to control facial muscles on the affected side. It usually comes on very fast over the course of a single day. It is thought that an inflammatory condition leads to swelling of the facial nerve. No readily identifiable cause for Bell’s palsy has been found. People suffering with Bells Palsy are given a course of steroid tablets immediately from their doctor. This helps to resolve the inflammation.
Acupuncture can work alongside the western approach to help resolve this invasion of inflammation.
