Bell’s Palsy causes facial paralysis, hearing disorders and problems with the jaw and associated muscles.  Recovery varies from patient to patient.  By taking the time to understand a patient’s problem, chiropractors create patient-centric treatment programs designed to improve motion, relieve pain, and address other nerve related issues. [5] The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics reported of a 49 year-old woman with Bell’s Palsy who received adjustments over a period of 6 months; regular improvements in her situation were observed.
