Rehabilitation of facial paralysis
Rehabilitation plays an important part in the treatment of facial paralysis, in particular when these are severe. It aims to direct the resumption of motor activity and prevent or reduce the sequelae (synkinesias, spasms, hypertonia). It is preferable that it be proposed early in order to set up a therapeutic project based on the results of the evaluation coupled, if necessary, with those of the ENMG. When there is surgery, preoperative work is recommended, especially in cases of hypoglossofacial anastomosis and temporal muscle lengthening myoplasty (MAT) where there is transfer of function. We propose to present an original technique aimed at strengthening the sensorimotor loop and cortical control of movements, in particular when using botulinum toxin and after surgery.
