The Importance of Facial Paralysis Treatment

Smiling at a loved one. Blinking. Enjoying a meal. Expressing emotions. These basic human acts become a challenge for individuals with facial paralysis.

Facial paralysis occurs when the facial nerve stops carrying electrical signals to the muscles of the face. Depending on the cause of paralysis, it can be permanent, recover partially or recover completely. Paralysis can take many forms, including facial drooping, involuntary movements or facial tightness. This leads to significant challenges for individuals suffering from this condition.

It is critical to accurately determine the cause of facial paralysis in every case to ensure the best patient outcomes. Following diagnosis, the Emory Facial Nerve Program focuses on the most up-to-date treatment options for patients afflicted with this condition.
