Additionally we care for those suffering from Oro-facial Dyskinesia & Facial Paralysis.
What you need to know
Orofacial Dyskinesia is movement disorder and is characterized by severe, involuntary, dystonic movements of the facial, oral, and cervical musculature. Research suggests that this condition is the result of an extrapyramidal disorder; and may be caused by long-term use of antipsychotic medications that block dopamine receptors.
Facial paralysis is the inability to move the muscles of the face on one or both sides. We provide care for those who’s facial paralysis results from trauma or disease, such as stroke or Bell’s palsy.
The problem can affect one or both sides of the face, with noticeable drooping of the features and problems with speaking, blinking, swallowing saliva, eating or communicating through natural facial expressions. Paralysis of the face may be temporary or permanent.
