Facial Clinic
My interest in facial palsy began from patients who had undergone acoustic neuroma removal and this surgical treatment may at times result in facial palsy.
 
The lack of effective treatment for these patients lead me to do training under Diana Farragher at the Lindens Clinic and in 2007, to set up a satellite service for them treating their patients in Scotland.
 
This partnership continues and we are delighted to treat facial palsy in all ages and of all causes. Facial palsy can be managed from early days post onset or months and years later in those who have not had access to treatment.
 
The most common causes of facial palsy are:
 
• Bells palsy
• Ramsay hunt syndrome
• Brain tumours, usually meningioma or acoustic neuroma/vestibular schwannoma
• Guillain Barre syndrome
• Trauma
• Parotid gland tumours
• Temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) problems
 
We use surface electromyography (sEmg) to test nerve function and to help clients learn to re-use muscles. We also use trophic stimulation to help recovery along with soft tissue techniques and exercise.
We have access to and can refer to specialist surgeons who can advise re surgical intervention if appropriate.
 
Facial Clinics are also held in London four times a year, (February, May, August and November), at Physio on the River, Barnes Bridge, The Terrace, London SW13 0NP.  An appointment or a query can be made through our ‘contact us’page.
 
You can also visit the Lindens Clinic in Manchester if this is a more convenient location.  Appointments can be made directly, please visit www.dianafarragher.co.uk for more information.
