Palsy (Definition)

...is a corruption of French "paralise" from Latinized Greek "paralysis." In the old days it meant any kind of persistent weakness. To this day Parkinson's disease is also called "paralysis agitans" which is a Latin translation of Dr. Parkinson's original name for it, the "shaking palsy."

I had a brain injury in oct of 2012 from an mva. I have partial paralysis on my left side. Are there any beneficial exercises to help get function bac?

I : I am sorry to hear that your bell's palsy did not improve. Most run of the mill bell's palsies start to improve about three or four weeks after the weakness is maximum. A small percentage does not regain function. Unfortunately after seven years, it is unlikely that you will have return of function. There are some neurosurgical procedure that involve nerve grafts and some cosmetic procedures that can give your face more symmetry ( and also protect your eye). I trust that your doctor has assured himself that you haven't developed a neuroma on the nerve. Facial nerve neuromas are not that common but can be a cause of permanent facial weakness. Reiki will not help. Good luck to you. ...Read more
