Rehabilitation specialists play an important role in treating individuals who develop facial paralysis from injury, illness, congenital issues, or birth trauma. As therapists, we know the importance of successfully treating facial paralysis to alleviate physical discomfort and pain, but also to help patients improve facial muscles for movement and expression and lessen the emotional toll visible changes can take on one’s self-image and well-being.
As director of Vestibular & Facial Nerve Atlanta, master clinician Dr. Gaye Cronin, OTD, OTR/L has used evidence-based practice to successfully treat thousands of patients experiencing facial paralysis. She is now sharing her expertise through ERI’s new live webinar “Neuromuscular Facial Retraining: Successful Strategies for Challenging Cases.” Dr. Cronin will teach successful neuromuscular facial retraining therapy strategies and techniques – for even the most challenging cases. Participants will learn to 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.
This CEU course is offered in a live webinar format in both August and December 2021. Rehabilitation specialists, including physical therapists (PTs), occupational therapists (OTs) and speech-language pathologists (SLPs), and assistants, as well as dietitians, audiologists, athletic trainers, and special educators, will find this course will help improve their practice and patient outcomes.
