According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, the most common cause of facial paralysis is Bell’s palsy.

It has been estimated that approximately 40,000 U.S. citizens are affected by facial paralysis caused due to Bell’s palsy. Facial paralysis caused by stroke affects the nerves controlling the facial muscle. Stoke causes damage to brain cells due to lack of oxygen, lead to bleeding. Some of the other causes of facial paralysis are Lyme disease, Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome, Ramsay-Hunt syndrome, Guillain Barre syndrome, Mobius syndrome, etc..

Facial paralysis symptoms caused due to Bell’s palsy may include loss of blinking control, drooping of the mouth, difficulty in speaking, and difficulty in swallowing. In case of stroke, individuals may experience dizziness, seizures, weakening of limbs, and loss of coordination. Diagnosis of facial paralysis is performed with help of electromyography (a test performed to assess the condition of facial muscle and nerves), imaging scans, and blood tests. Facial paralysis treatment comprises oral steroids such as prednisone, antiviral drugs, and physical therapy. In certain cases where medication does not help in treatment, surgery is performed. Individuals affect by facial paralysis are prescribed the use of artificial tears to lubricate their eyes, or they have to use a specialized moisture chamber to protect their eyes from any damage due to dryness. During surgery, the damaged nerves and muscles are repaired. In some cases, Botox injection is used along with physical therapy.

The major restrains of the global facial paralysis market are lack of awareness and low availability of treatment in smaller economies.
