Today I had 13th physio session for bells palsy. I'm done with steroid and antibiotics course. My nerves were responding to galvanic but yesterday on my face, little right to forehead, the nerve didn't respond. Physio applied faradic current and it responded then. Today even though it responded for galvanic, she again applied faradic current on the face. I heard faradic results in secondary contracture when applied on face. when faradic is applied on the side of the neck (trunk) i can hardly sense the stimulation. I have very little cheek movements and little on forehead. How much time it usually takes for recovery? Should I worry about the faradic current applying to facial muscles?
