Synkinesis is by far one of the most devastating residuals after long-standing facial palsy. “Can synkinesis be corrected or improved?” is a question that concerns almost everyone who has been faced with this issue. At Crystal Touch clinic we are confident that synkinesis CAN be reduced. We have published scientific articles and held presentations at various international Neuro-Rehabilitation and Neurology congresses on this topic. The results of our patients are yet another proof that synkinesis is not a life sentence – it is a habit. However, our experience tells us that the synkinesis will not go away by themselves.
Like any habit, synkinesis can be changed. It cannot be done overnight, it requires hard work, persistence and guidance. One cannot expect to run a marathon after just one day of practice. The same is with synkinesis – you need to work on it every day if you want to see results. At our clinic, we have developed Neuro-Proprioceptive Rehabilitation that specifically focuses on synkinesis and its reduction.
If you would like to know if synkinesis can be improved in your specific case, then speak with me during a remote diagnostic session.
