Bell's palsy (Facial nerves palsy)
It is said that if a patient with Bell's palsy "does not
get cured within 3 weeks of the appearance of the disease, he
never recovers". It can be said from the conclusion that
when lip myofunctional therapy is applied with Lip Trainer Patakara®,
though slight illness can be easily remedied, a little more time
is required for serious illnesses.
The points to be noted when doing lip-stretching by Lip Trainer
Patakara® for facial nerve disorders are as follows.
For facial nerve disorders, sustaining a light power for 20 minutes
continuously at one time gives a good result. At the same time,
when you intake water, the stretching which was aimed at as target
can be done by using the 'Bottle Lip Trainer' on the illness side.
In about 2 ~ 4 weeks from starting such stretching, along with
the restoration of the muscles of the atrophied healthy side,
the ridge line of the nose on the paralyzed side was stretched
and turned. I was also surprised at the change in the patient
at first, but think of it as the first signs of the effect. In
addition, after a lapse of about 4 weeks, the shape of the nose
becomes straight. A male patient will be satisfied with this level
of cure; a woman will not be satisfied with this. If one is associated
with it a little more, the balance will improve further and a
good result will be obtained.
I think that the use of rehabilitation type(softest hardness)
is good for rehabilitation. First of all, hold still the device
for rehabilitation in the mouth and then add the load as described
below. At this time, keep the device balanced and open the paralyzed
side which cannot be closed and though it becomes an "Inclined
shape" when the healthy side is closed, this state is Ok
at the beginning. Gradually, it will be possible to close the
Lip Trainer Patakara® horizontally in 4 weeks time, so there
is no need to hurry.
*There are individual differences in effect.
