Contact Hours:   9
Registration Fee:   $369

Describe neuromuscular facial retraining process Apply anatomy/physiology of Cranial Nerve VII (facial) for facial function, dysfunction, and neuroplasticity Recognize etiologies that cause facial paralysis and prognosis Describe facial assessments of grading scales, tone, synkinesis, and surface EMG Demonstrate evidenced-based treatment techniques for muscles, expression, function, and eye care Demonstrate understanding of indications and contraindications of treatments and modalities

Learn successful neuromuscular facial retraining therapy strategies and techniques for treating patients with facial nerve disorders (even the most challenging cases). Recognize facial nerve disorders by etiologies, symptoms and manifestations including: Bell’s palsy, Ramsay Hunt syndrome, facial nerve tumors, acoustic neuroma, Herpes zoster and simplex, infections, head trauma, post COVID-19, Guillian-Barre’ syndrome, Miller-Fisher syndrome, Melkerson Rosenthal, birth (congenital and acquired), post-surgical reanimation, Lyme’s disease, and toxicity. Assessments of facial nerve grading scales, bilateral surface electromyography, video application assessments (APP), synkinesis and muscle tone will be presented. This course offers the rehabilitation clinician an additional frame of reference for treatment that can positively affect patient’s function, eyelid mobility and eye protection, perception, expression, speech, self-care, motor skills/tone, facial symmetry, self-image, quality of life, and improvement of abnormal movement patterns, synkinesis and hemifacial spasm. Participants will then apply this new information through case studies and practice sessions.
