EFFECT OF MATRIX RHYTHM THERAPY AND FACIAL NEUROMUSCULAR RETRAINING PROGRAM IN BELL’S PALSY: CASE REPORT
Dr. Ketan Bhatikar*
Acute Bell’s palsy occurs due to inflammation of the facial nerve. A number of studies published in the resent years have suggested different treatment protocols that are beneficial for facial palsy. It is the need of the century that we should continuously be advanced in newer techniques and technologies in medical field. Matrix rhythm Therapy is a recent therapeutic modality that is beneficial in most of the medical conditions. Matrix rhythm therapy has fewer literatures in various medical conditions including neuromuscular condition. The present case study was aimed to evaluate the effect of Matrix Rhythm Therapy and Neuromuscular Retraining in Bell’s palsy. Neuromuscular stimulation was also added as conventional therapy. 2 cases were studied that gave a significant result on visual Analog Scale and muscle strength on pre post data at every 5-day sessions from 1st to 35th sessions. Study so can conclude that Matrix Rhythm Therapy can be associated with standard physiotherapy conventional treatment in the case of severe Bell’s palsy, and affected subjects may be likely to have a faster and better recovery than those in whom only conventional physical therapy treatment is applied.
