Bell’s Palsy

Bell’s palsy affects about 30,000 – 40,000 people a year in the United States. Bell’s palsy involves damage to the seventh cranial (facial) nerve. This nerve controls the movement of the muscles of the face.

Bell’s palsy is thought to be due to swelling (inflammation) of this nerve in the area where it travels through the bones of the skull.

The cause is often not clear. However , most of my clients with Bell’s palsy have been found to have exacerbation of the seventh cranial nerve, coming from structural problems that they may have. Through NFR treatments, clients have reported significant changes in their control of their facial musscles, improving if not eliminating this condition.
