ABSTRACT

Purpose: The purpose of the study was to find the effectiveness of Mime therapy versus Neuromuscular facilitation on facial function in subjects with Bell‟s palsy. Methods: Quasi experimental study design. In this study, there were 78 subjects with an average age of 20 years, a clinical diagnosis of Bell‟s palsy, who were randomly divided into two groups. The subjects in Group A (n=39) received Mime come physiotherapy, while the subjects in Group-B (n=39) received PNF come physiotherapy protocol. Intervention was given to participants daily for six weeks. The SBFGS for facial function and FDI for disability were used to assess the intervention‟s effectiveness. Results: Independent „t‟ test was used to compare the mean significance difference between Continuous variables. Paired „t‟ was used to assess the statistical significance difference between pre and post scores. Statistical analysis of this data revealed that, both groups significantly improved in both parameters when compared within groups, but when compared between the groups, Mime therapy come electrical stimulation protocol group (Group A) improved better than PNF Protocol (Group-B). Conclusion: After 6 weeks of intervention both Group-A and Group-B showed significant improvement in Bell‟s palsy subjects. However Mime therapy with electrical stimulation protocol group showed better improvement compared to the PNF with electrical stimulation protocol. Study concluded that Mime therapy with electrical stimulation is more beneficial and for better improvement in Bell‟s palsy subjects.

Keywords: Bell?s palsy, SBFGS, FDI questionnaire, Mime therapy, Electrical stimulation and PNF.
