What is the purpose of this video course?
The purpose of this course is to teach you about facial and Bell’s palsy, their complications and residuals, as well as understand the anatomy of the facial nerve and the facial muscles.
We have created these videos because through the experience with our rehabilitation patients, we see how a good understanding of Bell’s palsy helps them in their recovery. The knowledge gave them confidence, patience and motivation to keep on fighting and working hard to improve their condition. It also gave them hope, because they understood why the recovery is always possible and they knew that they just had to carry on and the results would definitely come.
What is the difference between this course and another Video Lectures course?
“Bell’s Palsy & Its Residuals: What it is and what to do about it” Video Lectures focus on explaining not only the processes of facial palsy and its residuals but also the underlying principals of rehabilitation and recovery. The Q&A videos will further help you to get the answers to your existing questions. It includes more information than the “Bell’s Palsy Knowledge Base Video Course” but the information is less detailed.
“Bell’s Palsy Knowledge Base Video Course” focuses mainly on a deeper and more extensive explanation of the main processes involved in facial palsy and the residuals. With the help of more animations and illustrations, this course helps to understand the anatomy of the facial nerve, facial muscles and the processes involved in various residuals better.
In summary, the “Bell’s Palsy Knowledge Base Video Course” provides more in-depth information and better explanations of just a couple of topics, while the “Bell’s Palsy & Its Residuals: What it is and what to do about it” Video Lectures cover a much wider area of topics and explain everything that is connected to Bell’s palsy, its residuals and their recovery.
Which is why we advise following both courses: you will learn everything you need to know about Bell’s palsy with the help of “Bell’s palsy & Its Residuals” course, while “Bell’s Palsy Knowledge Base Video Course” will explain you the main concepts in more details and will be easier to understand.
