Chiropractic Care of a Patient With Vertebral Subluxation and Bellís Palsy
J Manipulative Physiol Ther 2003 (May);   26 (4):   253

There are indications that patients suffering from Bellís palsy may benefit from a holistic chiropractic approach that not only includes a focus of examination and care of the primary regional areas of complaint (eg, face, TMJ) but also potentially from significant vertebral subluxation concomitants.


Treatment of Facial Muscles Affected by Bell's Palsy
with High-Voltage Electrical Muscle Stimulation

J Manipulative Physiol Ther 1993 (Jun);   16 (5):   347-352

Both patients were treated with high-voltage pulsed galvanic current at 80 peaks/sec with a 7-inch hand-held held probe for 10 min each visit. In addition, the cervical spine fixations were mobilized using chiropractic manipulation. Case A was resolved after 6 wk of treatment and case B was resolved after 3 wk of treatment.


Treatment of Bell's Palsy by Mechanical Force, Manually Assisted
Chiropractic Adjusting and High-voltage Electrotherapy

J Manipulative Physiol Ther 1992 (Nov);   15 (9):   596Ė598

This article discusses two cases of Bell's palsy successfully treated by mechanical force, manually assisted chiropractic adjusting technique combined with high-voltage electrotherapy. While these two cases do not necessarily represent any rule for the chiropractic treatment of Bell's palsy by the methods used, or for other chiropractic methods that may be used, they do represent an initial time/treatment "baseline" by which future inter- and intratechnique comparisons may be made for the determination of relative effectiveness.
