Facial Nerve Disorders

Treatment of Facial Nerve Disorders

Facial nerve disorders, also known as facial nerve dysfunction or facial paralysis, can be caused by infections, disorders and trauma.  Your facial muscles lose movement due to nerve damage resulting in weakness, twitching in the face to sometimes full paralysis. This can affect one or both sides of your face. The most common form of facial nerve disorders is Bell’s Palsy. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, approximately 40,000 Americans each year are affected by this.
