Physiotherapy In Bell's Palsy

Physiotherapy is very important therapy in curing Bell's Palsy.
There is 100% result when commenced from Ist day of onset of symptoms.
What is Bell's Palsy?
Bell's palsy is a paralysis of cranial nerve VII (the facial nerve) resulting in inability to control facial muscles on the affected side. Several conditions can cause a facial paralysis, e.g., brain tumor, stroke, and Lyme disease. However, if no specific cause can be identified, the condition is known as Bell's Palsy. Named after Scottish anatomist Charles Bell, who first described it, Bell's palsy is the most common acute mononeuropathy (disease involving only one nerve), and is the most common cause of acute facial nerve paralysis.

Physiotherapy Treatment:
Physiotherapy treatment consists of:-
1. Galvanic Current over motor Points.
2.Faradic Current over branches of Facial Nerve.
3.Facial Exercises.
* Treatment should be started as soon as possible. Signs of recovery are seen after 8-10 days and treatment is over by minimum 15 days and maximum 4 wks.

And here it may perhaps divert the curious reader to give some account of my domestics, and my manner of living in this country, during a residence of nine months and thirteen days. Having a head mechanically turned, and being likewise forced by necessity, I had made for myself a table and chair convenient enough, out of the largest trees in the royal park. Two hundred seamstresses were employed to make me shirts, and linen for my bed and table, all of the strongest and coarsest kind they could get; which, however, they were forced to quilt together in several folds, for the thickest was some degrees finer than lawn. Their linen is usually three inches wide, and three feet make a piece. The seamstresses took my measure as I lay on the ground, one standing at my neck, and another at my mid-leg, with a strong cord extended, that each held by the end, while the third measured the length of the cord with a rule an inch long. Then they measured my right thumb, and desired no more; for by a mathematical computation, that twice round the thumb is once round the wrist, and so on to the neck and the waist, and by the help of my old shirt, which I displayed on the ground before them for a pattern, they fitted me exactly. Three hundred tailors were employed in the same manner to make me clothes; but they had another contrivance for taking my measure. I kneeled down, and they raised a ladder from the ground to my neck; upon this ladder one of them mounted, and let fall a plumb-line from my collar to the floor, which just answered the length of my coat; but my waist and arms I measured myself. When my clothes finished, which was done in my house (for the largest of theirs would not have been able to hold them) they looked like the patch-work made by the ladies in England, only that mine were all of a color.

What is physiotherapy


"Physiotherapists are good people to know. They're educated in understanding the interaction of all your body parts. Their hands-on approach begins with examination, diagnosis, and treatment of the immediate problem. Then they teach you how to take care of yourself by showing you how to do exercises and how to use your body properly to gain strength and mobility and prevent recurring injury. You'll find them advising on proper posture and body motion in the work place, treating injuries, consulting on fitness, and administering physical therapy in the home. Today physical therapists provide help for every part of the body to everyone from infants to the elderly - more than 1 million people every day!
Physiotherapy means "therapeutic system of medicine which includes examination treatment, advice and instruction to any person preparatory to or in connection with movement dysfunction, bodily malfunction, physical disorder, disability, healing and pain from trauma, disease, physical and mental condition, using physical agents including exercises, mobilisation, manipulation mechanical and electrical therapy, activities and devices for diagnosis, treatment and prevention".
It includes mainly two fields for its therapeutic effects. These are Mechanotherapy and Electrotherapy. Mechanotherapy basically involves the manual procedures that are soft tissue manipulation, popularly known as massage and the other is manipulation techniques which has joint mobilisation, and Electrotherapy includes electric modalities for the treatment such as - diathermy, ultrasound, laser etc.
Physiotherapy (P.T.) is considered as a conservative treatment method addressing the treatment, healing and prevention of injuries and disabilities. P.T. focuses primarily, but not solely, on pain relief, promoting healing, restoring function and movement, facilitation and adaptation associated with injury. Other areas that are focused upon within P.T. are ergonomic (body mechanic) training, Fitness/wellness, and especially education.
Myths regarding physiotherapy
Many patients may think that they know how to properly exercise, manage their pain and rehabilitate themselves. We have commonly been given explanations from patients for why they do not need therapy - i.e.: "I have had this before and I know what works for me" or "I know what is causing this, because my neighbour had the same thing so I will just do what she did" and attempt to manage themselves. A Physical Therapist is a specialist skilled and educated specifically in proper rehabilitation. We are continually educated as to management for different dysfunction's, differentiation of one dysfunction/injury from another and work closely with the referring physician in the development of a rehabilitation program specifically designed for each individual. The other important aspect to remember with physical therapy is that each individual is different. We all have different types of bodies, different patterns of movement, different alignments and different habits. A physical therapist, along with the trained staff, monitors each individual and attempt to correct improper habits, alignments and movement patterns.
Who is a "Physiotherapist"?
Today's physical therapist has a lot to offer for patients of all ages.
Chances are, you have already heard of physiotherapist. You might have heard from a friend how physiotherapy helped get rid of his or her back pain, or you might know someone who needed physiotherapy after an injury. You might even have been treated by a physiotherapist yourself. But have you ever wondered about physiotherapist -who we are and what we do? Read on.
The Essence of Physiotherapy
Although the use of certain techniques of physiotherapy goes back to ancient times, the modern profession of physiotherapy developed in the twentieth century, in the wake of World War I. The very first modern American physiotherapists were trained to work with soldiers returning from the war, and several groups of "reconstruction aides," as they were then called, actually were sent to military hospitals in France to institute early rehabilitation with wounded veterans.
Today's physiotherapist is a direct descendant of these brave women (and a few men). Physiotherapists now practice in a wide variety of settings, with patients from all age groups. Many people are familiar with physical therapists' work helping patients with orthopaedic problems, such as low back pain or knee surgeries, to reduce pain and regain function. Others may be aware of the treatment that physiotherapists provide to assist patients recovering from a stroke in learning to use their limbs and walk again. If you are old enough to remember the mid-century polio epidemics, you might be aware of the important role that physiotherapists played in helping people with this disease minimise or overcome its paralysing effects. Each of these recollections captures the essence of physiotherapists. In today's health care system, physiotherapists are the experts in the examination and treatment of musculo-skeletal and neuromuscular problems that affect people's abilities to move the way they want and function as well as they want in their daily lives
Movement and Function
The ability to maintain an upright posture and to move your arms and legs to perform all sorts of tasks and activities is an important component of your health. Most of us can learn to live with the various medical conditions that we may develop, but only if we are able to continue at our jobs, take care of our families, and enjoy important occasions with family and friends. All of these activities require the ability to move without difficulty or pain.
For some of us, the ability to move is not merely a matter of using our limbs to walk or handle objects. There are cardiac and pulmonary problems that interfere with the body's ability to use oxygen, which is the "fuel" of muscles and movement. Because people of all ages, from the newborn to the very aged, have the need to move and function, physiotherapists work with patients across the life span. You might see physiotherapists working with patients or clients in hospitals (even critically ill patients in the intensive care unit), in nursing homes, in outpatient clinics, in the home, in schools, and on the job.
Because physiotherapists are experts in movement and function, they do not confine their talents to treating people who are ill. A large part of a physiotherapist's program is directed at preventing injury and loss of movement. Physiotherapists work as consultants in industrial settings to improve the design of the workplace and reduce the risk of workers overusing certain muscles or developing low back pain. They also provide services to athletes at all levels to screen for potential problems and institute preventive exercise programs. With the boom in the fitness industry, a number of physiotherapists are engaged in consulting with individuals and fitness clubs to develop workouts that are safe and effective, especially for people who already know that they have a problem with their joints or their backs.
Education and Qualification
Because physiotherapists are required to understand a vast array of problems that can affect movement, function, and health, all physical therapists are college graduates. The majority of physiotherapist education programs graduate students with a Bachelor's degree, and a few schools offer a Master's in physical therapy. All these programs should be offered on campus because experience with handling live cases under appropriate supervision is a necessity.
The cornerstones of physiotherapy treatment are therapeutic exercise and functional training. In addition to "hands-on" care, physiotherapists also educate patients to take care of themselves and to perform certain exercises on their own. Depending on the particular needs of a patient, physical therapists may also "mobilise" or "manipulate" a joint (that is, perform certain types of movements at the end of your range of motion) or massage a muscle to promote proper movement and function. Physiotherapists also use methods such as ultrasound (which uses high frequency waves to produce heat), hot packs, ice and other Bio-electrical modalities. Although other kinds of practitioners will offer some of these treatments as "physical therapy," it's important for you to know that physiotherapy can only be provided by qualified physiotherapists, who have a bachelor's degree.
