Abstract

EFFECT OF MIME THERAPY IN PEOPLE WITH BELL’S PALSY

M. Sandhiya*, Priya Kumari and Sofia Mcconell

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Bell’s palsy is an idiopathic paresis of the facial nerve (CN VII). The major cause of the Bell’s palsy is mostly idiopathic, other causes are exposure to cold air, middle ear infection and dental and ENT surgeries. Mime therapy is used in this study to investigate the effect in reducing the impact of the facial paresis. Mime therapy is a non-conventional therapy whereas; electrical stimulation is a conventional therapy. The main objective of this study was to find out the effectiveness of mime therapy in treating unilateral Bell’s palsy and to reduce the intake of drugs. Methodlogy: Thirty individuals affected with unilateral Bell’s palsy who were assessed by HBFGS were participated in this study with age group of 40-65, irrespective to the gender. Mime therapy with electrical stimulation was given to the experimental group and electrical stimulation with therapeutic massage was given to the control group. Result: The result stated that there is statistical significant increase in the group which received mime therapy and the group which received electrical stimulation, showing ‘p’ value 0.0001. Conclusion: There is significant improvement in both the groups but the group that received mime therapy improved better compared to the group that received electrical stimulation.

Keywords: (HBFGS) House Brackmann facial grading system, (CN VII) seventh cranial nerve.
