Bell’s Palsy is a condition in which muscles on one side of your face become weak or paralyzed. Bell’s Palsy can only occur on one side of your face at a time and gives off a droopy or stiff look. When it comes to treating Bell’s Palsy, K-Laser is highly recommended in order to see successful results. If you are looking for K-Laser Therapy for Bell’s Palsy in Astoria, Advance Physical Therapy can help you!

Advance PT located in Astoria, as well as 3 locations on Long Island, can provide you with K-Laser therapy treatment. K-Laser therapy treatment uses red and near infrared light to guide your cells with tissue regeneration. The cells then use the light to restore cells that are deprived of nutrients, water, and oxygen.

Symptoms of Bell’s Palsy include:

  • Droopiness in one side of your face
  • Feeling pain 1-2 days before you notice
  • Sounds can be much louder than usual
  • Drooling
  • Unable to close your eyelid or blink
  • Your eye waters more than usual

Typically drooping takes place 1-2 days and is the peak of Bell’s Palsy. It can take up to 3 months or longer to recover from Bell’s Palsy. Unfortunately, some symptoms can be permanent.

Due to the specific wavelengths of the light, K-Laser therapy promotes and aids the body’s natural ability to heal. Benefits of taking part in K-Laser therapy include:
