Chiropractic Care of a 47-year-old Woman with Chronic Bell's Palsy: A Case Study
Journal of Chiropractic Medicine 2011 (Dec); 10 (4): 288Ė293 ~ FULL TEXT
The patient received high-velocity, low-amplitude chiropractic manipulation (adjustments) to the cervical and thoracic spine, interferential muscle stimulation, and hydroculation on the trapezius muscles bilaterally. Reduction in symptoms occurred following the initial visit and continued over the next 9 weeks of care. After the course of a year of chiropractic care, the patient reached 90% improvement.
Chiropractic Care of a Patient With Vertebral Subluxation and Bellís Palsy
J Manipulative Physiol Ther 2003 (May); 26 (4): 253 ~ FULL TEXT
There are indications that patients suffering from Bellís palsy may benefit from a holistic chiropractic approach that not only includes a focus of examination and care of the primary regional areas of complaint (eg, face, TMJ) but also potentially from significant vertebral subluxation concomitants.
Treatment of Bell's Palsy by Mechanical Force, Manually Assisted
Chiropractic Adjusting and High-voltage Electrotherapy
J Manipulative Physiol Ther 1992 (Nov); 15 (9): 596Ė598
This article discusses two cases of Bell's palsy successfully treated by mechanical force, manually assisted chiropractic adjusting technique combined with high-voltage electrotherapy. While these two cases do not necessarily represent any rule for the chiropractic treatment of Bell's palsy by the methods used, or for other chiropractic methods that may be used, they do represent an initial time/treatment "baseline" by which future inter- and intratechnique comparisons may be made for the determination of relative effectiveness.
