Acupuncture for Bell's Palsy

April 11, 2018



Bell’s palsy is a sudden weakness or paralysis of one side of the face. It is caused by inflammation or damage to the facial nerve. It is usually temporary – most people recover fully.


What is Bell’s palsy?

Bell’s palsy is a weakness or paralysis of the facial muscles that usually affects just one side of the face.

It is thought to be mainly caused by an infection with a virus.

The infection inflames or puts pressure on the nerve that controls your facial muscles. It can be mild, or it can be severe.

Most people recover without treatment in 3 to 9 months.
