New York’s Leading Facial Reanimation Therapists

You had Facial Reanimation Surgery, Now What 

Surgery may facilitate vital facial expressions like blinking, smiling, frowning, etc. that are vital for normal function.  Expert physical therapy by a clinician that has experience rehabilitating delicate post-surgical facial tissues is necessary to regain normal facial muscle resting tone and facial muscle strength. Edema, or swelling in your face, is common in many patients. Conservative non-invasive treatments can lower your swelling, reduce your discomfort, and provide you with the ability to speak and chew normally while your body heals. We’ve helped countless patients in New York City, NY, recover from facial reanimation surgery.  In the end, physical therapy can restore your ability to do the essential things you might have taken for granted and take part in daily living again.

Why Therapy Following Facial Reanimation is Important

As with many surgeries, rehabilitation of the affected muscles and tissues is necessary for a full recovery.  These affected muscles and the movements they produce need to be retrained and exhibit excellent symmetrical coordination and produce precise facial expressions. Patients who do not rehabilitate sufficiently may suffer from stilted or painful facial movements, and the ability to speak, chew, or move their heads may not heal efficiently. At Pivotal Physical Therapy, we’ll work with you to discover a regimen of exercises, manual techniques, electrical stimulation and biofeedback that will provide you with control of your face, head, and neck. We can help minimize facial swelling and ease any discomfort you may feel while chewing or breathing. When it comes to quality patient care, we’re committed to your health and your satisfaction.
