Most people with Bell's palsy recover fully — with or without treatment. There's no one-size-fits-all treatment for Bell's palsy, but your doctor may suggest medications or physical therapy to help speed your recovery. Surgery is rarely an option for Bell's palsy.
Commonly used medications to treat Bell's palsy include:
Paralyzed muscles can shrink and shorten, causing permanent contractures. A physical therapist can teach you how to massage and exercise your facial muscles to help prevent this from occurring.
Laser therapy is a pain free treatment used by a physical therapist to aide the recovery of the facial nerve. The laser stimulates the natural healing process and can improve recovery times in as little as 2 weeks.
