Muscles of facial expression or mimetic muscles that include the numerous muscles supplied by the facial nerve that are attached to and move the skin of the face. (From Stedman, 25th ed)
Severe or complete loss of facial muscle motor function. This condition may result from central or peripheral lesions. Damage to CNS motor pathways from the cerebral cortex to the facial nuclei in the pons leads to facial weakness that generally spares the forehead muscles. FACIAL NERVE DISEASES generally results in generalized hemifacial weakness. NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION DISEASES and MUSCULAR DISEASES may also cause facial paralysis or paresis.
The 7th cranial nerve. The facial nerve has two parts, the larger motor root which may be called the facial nerve proper, and the smaller intermediate or sensory root. Together they provide efferent innervation to the muscles of facial expression and to the lacrimal and SALIVARY GLANDS, and convey afferent information for TASTE from the anterior two-thirds of the TONGUE and for TOUCH from the EXTERNAL EAR.
A facial expression which may denote feelings of pleasure, affection, amusement, etc.
Observable changes of expression in the face in response to emotional stimuli.
Either of a pair of bones that form the prominent part of the CHEEK and contribute to the ORBIT on each side of the SKULL.
Surgical reinnervation of a denervated peripheral target using a healthy donor nerve and/or its proximal stump. The direct connection is usually made to a healthy postlesional distal portion of a non-functioning nerve or implanted directly into denervated muscle or insensitive skin. Nerve sprouts will grow from the transferred nerve into the denervated elements and establish contact between them and the neurons that formerly controlled another area.
Congenital or acquired asymmetry of the face.
Muscles arising in the zygomatic arch that close the jaw. Their nerve supply is masseteric from the mandibular division of the trigeminal nerve. (From Stedman, 25th ed)
Neoplasms of the base of the skull specifically, differentiated from neoplasms of unspecified sites or bones of the skull (SKULL NEOPLASMS).
Contractile tissue that produces movement in animals.
Recording of the changes in electric potential of muscle by means of surface or needle electrodes.
Tumors or cancer of the PAROTID GLAND.
The protein constituents of muscle, the major ones being ACTINS and MYOSINS. More than a dozen accessory proteins exist including TROPONIN; TROPOMYOSIN; and DYSTROPHIN.
Unstriated and unstriped muscle, one of the muscles of the internal organs, blood vessels, hair follicles, etc. Contractile elements are elongated, usually spindle-shaped cells with centrally located nuclei. Smooth muscle fibers are bound together into sheets or bundles by reticular fibers and frequently elastic nets are also abundant. (From Stedman, 25th ed)
A subtype of striated muscle, attached by TENDONS to the SKELETON. Skeletal muscles are innervated and their movement can be consciously controlled. They are also called voluntary muscles.
Large, multinucleate single cells, either cylindrical or prismatic in shape, that form the basic unit of SKELETAL MUSCLE. They consist of MYOFIBRILS enclosed within and attached to the SARCOLEMMA. They are derived from the fusion of skeletal myoblasts (MYOBLASTS, SKELETAL) into a syncytium, followed by differentiation.
The nonstriated involuntary muscle tissue of blood vessels.
Diseases of the facial nerve or nuclei. Pontine disorders may affect the facial nuclei or nerve fascicle. The nerve may be involved intracranially, along its course through the petrous portion of the temporal bone, or along its extracranial course. Clinical manifestations include facial muscle weakness, loss of taste from the anterior tongue, hyperacusis, and decreased lacrimation.
The facial skeleton, consisting of bones situated between the cranial base and the mandibular region. While some consider the facial bones to comprise the hyoid (HYOID BONE), palatine (HARD PALATE), and zygomatic (ZYGOMA) bones, MANDIBLE, and MAXILLA, others include also the lacrimal and nasal bones, inferior nasal concha, and vomer but exclude the hyoid bone. (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p113)
Developmental events leading to the formation of adult muscular system, which includes differentiation of the various types of muscle cell precursors, migration of myoblasts, activation of myogenesis and development of muscle anchorage.
General or unspecified injuries to the soft tissue or bony portions of the face.
A process leading to shortening and/or development of tension in muscle tissue. Muscle contraction occurs by a sliding filament mechanism whereby actin filaments slide inward among the myosin filaments.

Electrical stimulation as a therapeutic option to improve eyelid function in chronic facial nerve disorders. (1/322)

PURPOSE: To establish whether it is possible to improve orbicularis oculi muscle function in the eyelids of patients with a chronic seventh cranial nerve palsy by using transcutaneous electrical stimulation to the point at which electrical stimulation induces a functional blink. METHODS: Ten subjects (one woman, nine men) aged 36 to 76 with chronic, moderate to severe facial nerve palsy were recruited into the study. Voluntary and spontaneous eyelid movements were assessed, using an optical measuring system, before, during, and after a 3-month treatment period. Voluntary and spontaneous lid velocities were also measured and compared with eyelid kinematic data in normal subjects (12 women, 18 men; age range, 22-56 years). RESULTS: Therapeutic electrical stimulation applied over 3 months produced improvement in eyelid movement (>2 mm) in 8 of 10 patients during voluntary eyelid closure. However, there was no significant improvement recorded in spontaneous blink amplitudes or peak downward-phase velocity of the upper eyelid. This regimen of stimulation failed to recover function well enough that a functional blink could be induced in the paretic eyelid by electrical stimulation. CONCLUSIONS: Electrical stimulation using transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulators units can improve voluntary eye closure, apparently because of a reduction in stiffness of eyelid mechanics, rather than an improvement of muscle function. Investigation of alternative stimulation regimens is warranted.  (+info)

Anticonvulsant-induced dyskinesias: a comparison with dyskinesias induced by neuroleptics. (2/322)

Anticonvulsants cause dyskinesias more commonly than has been appreciated. Diphenylhydantoin (DPH), carbamazepine, primidone, and phenobarbitone may cause asterixis. DPH, but not other anticonvulsants, may cause orofacial dyskinesias, limb chorea, and dystonia in intoxicated patients. These dyskinesias are similar to those caused by neuroleptic drugs and may be related to dopamine antagonistic properties possessed by DPH.  (+info)

MR imaging of Dejerine-Sottas disease. (3/322)

We report the MR findings in two patients with clinically and histologically proved Dejerine-Sottas disease. One patient had spinal involvement with multiple thickened and clumped nerve roots of the cauda equina; the second had multiple enlarged and enhancing cranial nerves. Although these findings are not specific for Dejerine-Sottas disease, they are suggestive of the diagnosis, which is further corroborated with history and confirmed with sural nerve biopsy and laboratory studies.  (+info)

MR appearance of rhinoscleroma. (4/322)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: We describe the MR imaging appearance of rhinoscleroma, an endemic, chronic, granulomatous disease whose causative agent is Klebsiella rhinoscleromatis. METHODS: The study included 15 patients (nine males and six females; mean age, 25 years; range, 13-36 years) with rhinoscleroma. MR imaging was performed in all patients. The signal intensity of the nasal masses was compared with that of fat, muscle, and CSF on both T1- and T2-weighted images. All cases were proved by histopathologic examination. RESULTS: The nasal masses were bilateral and symmetrical (n = 6), asymmetrical (n = 4), or unilateral (n = 5). They extended through the anterior nares (n = 9) or posterior choana into the nasopharynx (n = 3). They obstructed the ostiomeatal units with retained secretions in the related sinuses (n = 10). On T1-weighted images, rhinoscleroma showed striking (n = 9) or mild (n = 6) high signal intensity relative to muscle and CSF, but less hyperintensity than fat. On T2-weighted images, the nasal masses showed homogeneous high signal intensity (n = 10) or heterogeneous high signal intensity associated with hypointense foci (n = 5). They were hyperintense relative to fat and muscle, but less hyperintense than CSF. CONCLUSION: The hypertrophic stage of rhinoscleroma has characteristic mild to marked high signal intensity on both T1- and T2-weighted MR images.  (+info)

The neuromuscular control of birdsong. (5/322)

Birdsong requires complex learned motor skills involving the coordination of respiratory, vocal organ and craniomandibular muscle groups. Recent studies have added to our understanding of how these vocal subsystems function and interact during song production. The respiratory rhythm determines the temporal pattern of song. Sound is produced during expiration and each syllable is typically followed by a small inspiration, except at the highest syllable repetition rates when a pattern of pulsatile expiration is used. Both expiration and inspiration are active processes. The oscine vocal organ, the syrinx, contains two separate sound sources at the cranial end of each bronchus, each with independent motor control. Dorsal syringeal muscles regulate the timing of phonation by adducting the sound-generating labia into the air stream. Ventral syringeal muscles have an important role in determining the fundamental frequency of the sound. Different species use the two sides of their vocal organ in different ways to achieve the particular acoustic properties of their song. Reversible paralysis of the vocal organ during song learning in young birds reveals that motor practice is particularly important in late plastic song around the time of song crystallization in order for normal adult song to develop. Even in adult crystallized song, expiratory muscles use sensory feedback to make compensatory adjustments to perturbations of respiratory pressure. The stereotyped beak movements that accompany song appear to have a role in suppressing harmonics, particularly at low frequencies.  (+info)

Features of cortically evoked swallowing in the awake primate (Macaca fascicularis). (6/322)

Although the cerebral cortex has been implicated in the control of swallowing, the output organization of the cortical swallowing representation, and features of cortically evoked swallowing, remain unclear. The present study defined the output features of the primate "cortical swallowing representation" with intracortical microstimulation (ICMS) applied within the lateral sensorimotor cortex. In four hemispheres of two awake monkeys, microelectrode penetrations were made at 5 mm deep to the cortical surface corresponding to both the white matter underlying the CMA and the frontal operculum; EMG patterns of swallows elicited from these four cortical regions showed some statistically significant differences. Whereas swallowing ONLY was evoked at some sites, particularly within the deep cortical area, swallowing was more frequently evoked together with other orofacial responses including rhythmic jaw movements. Increasing ICMS intensity increased the magnitude, and decreased the latency, of the swallow-related EMG burst in the genioglossus muscle at some sites. These findings suggest that a number of distinct cortical foci may participate in the initiation and modulation of the swallowing synergy as well as in integrating the swallow within the masticatory sequence.  (+info)

Direct injection of liposome-encapsulated doxorubicin optimizes chemomyectomy in rabbit eyelid. (7/322)

PURPOSE: Doxorubicin chemomyectomy presently represents the only permanent, nonsurgical treatment for blepharospasm and hemifacial spasm. The major deterrent to an otherwise extremely effective treatment protocol is the development in patients of localized inflammation, discomfort, and skin injury over the injection site. As a potential alternative therapy, Doxil (Sequus, Menlo Park, CA), a liposome-encapsulated form of doxorubicin that displays tissue-selective therapeutic effects compared with free doxorubicin, was examined. These effects have been related to its increased retention in tissues and its sustained release over time. For the skin, Doxil is classified as an irritant rather than a vesicant. METHODS: Rabbits received direct injections of 1, 2, or 3 mg Doxil alone or in sequence with other agents directly into the lower eyelids. The treated eyelids were examined daily for signs of skin injury. One month after the last injection, the rabbits were euthanatized, and their eyelids were examined histologically for the effect of Doxil on the orbicularis oculi muscle and the skin. RESULTS: At equivalent milligram doses of free doxorubicin, Doxil spared the skin from injury. Doxil was only approximately 60% as effective in killing muscles as the same milligram dose of free doxorubicin. However, either two injections of Doxil spaced 2 months apart or preinjury of the lid with bupivacaine before a single dose of Doxil treatment resulted in increased muscle loss compared with a single dose of Doxil alone and was as effective as free doxorubicin. Higher doses of Doxil did not increase the desired myotoxic effect; apparently, the dose effect levels off at a maximum. Signs of skin injury were minimal; there were small or no adverse skin changes at the maximum effective myotoxic doses. CONCLUSIONS: Injection of Doxil resulted in significant reduction of skin injury compared with doxorubicin alone. Although single injections of Doxil were myotoxic, multiple exposure of the eyelid to the liposome-encapsulated form substantially improved myotoxicity while sparing the skin. Repeated doses of the liposome-encapsulated form of doxorubicin may be as clinically effective as free doxorubicin injections and may produce fewer unwanted side effects.  (+info)

Differentiation of avian craniofacial muscles: I. Patterns of early regulatory gene expression and myosin heavy chain synthesis. (8/322)

Myogenic populations of the avian head arise within both epithelial (somitic) and mesenchymal (unsegmented) mesodermal populations. The former, which gives rise to neck, tongue, laryngeal, and diaphragmatic muscles, show many similarities to trunk axial, body wall, and appendicular muscles. However, muscle progenitors originating within unsegmented head mesoderm exhibit several distinct features, including multiple ancestries, the absence of several somite lineage-determining regulatory gene products, diverse locations relative to neuraxial and pharyngeal tissues, and a prolonged and necessary interaction with neural crest cells. The object of this study has been to characterize the spatial and temporal patterns of early muscle regulatory gene expression and subsequent myosin heavy chain isoform appearance in avian mesenchyme-derived extraocular and branchial muscles, and compare these with expression patterns in myotome-derived neck and tongue muscles. Myf5 and myoD transcripts are detected in the dorsomedial (epaxial) region of the occipital somites before stage 12, but are not evident in the ventrolateral domain until stage 14. Within unsegmented head mesoderm, myf5 expression begins at stage 13.5 in the second branchial arch, followed within a few hours in the lateral rectus and first branchial arch myoblasts, then other eye and branchial arch muscles. Expression of myoD is detected initially in the first branchial arch beginning at stage 14.5, followed quickly by its appearance in other arches and eye muscles. Multiple foci of myoblasts expressing these transcripts are evident during the early stages of myogenesis in the first and third branchial arches and the lateral rectus-pyramidalis/quadratus complex, suggesting an early patterned segregation of muscle precursors within head mesoderm. Myf5-positive myoblasts forming the hypoglossal cord emerge from the lateral borders of somites 4 and 5 by stage 15 and move ventrally as a cohort. Myosin heavy chain (MyHC) is first immunologically detectable in several eye and branchial arch myofibers between stages 21 and 22, although many tongue and laryngeal muscles do not initiate myosin production until stage 24 or later. Detectable synthesis of the MyHC-S3 isoform, which characterizes myofibers as having "slow" contraction properties, occurs within 1-2 stages of the onset of MyHC synthesis in most head muscles, with tongue and laryngeal muscles being substantially delayed. Such a prolonged, 2- to 3-day period of regulatory gene expression preceding the onset of myosin production contrasts with the interval seen in muscles developing in axial (approximately 18 hr) and wing (approximately 1-1.5 days) locations, and is unique to head muscles. This finding suggests that ongoing interactions between head myoblasts and their surroundings, most likely neural crest cells, delay myoblast withdrawal from the mitotic pool. These descriptions define a spatiotemporal pattern of muscle regulatory gene and myosin heavy chain expression unique to head muscles. This pattern is independent of origin (somitic vs. unsegmented paraxial vs. prechordal mesoderm), position (extraocular vs. branchial vs. subpharyngeal), and fiber type (fast vs. slow) and is shared among all muscles whose precursors interact with cephalic neural crest populations.

The ability to distinguish feigned from involuntary expressions of emotions could help in the investigation and treatment of neuropsychiatric and affective disorders and in the detection of malingering. This work investigates differences in emotion-specific patterns of thermal variations along the major facial muscles. Using experimental data extracted from 156 images, we attempted to classify patterns of emotion-specific thermal variations into neutral, and voluntary and involuntary expressions of positive and negative emotive states. Initial results suggest (i) each facial muscle exhibits a unique thermal response to various emotive states; (ii) the pattern of thermal variances along the facial muscles may assist in classifying voluntary and involuntary facial expressions; and (iii) facial skin temperature measurements along the major facial muscles may be used in automated emotion assessment.. ...

SKINNER Unite tat This invention relates to muscle conditioning devices and more particularly to a facial muscle conditioner and blood flow promoting device specially designed for use by the individual to improve and maintain the tone of the facial muscular complex. It is a well established physiological fact that the tone and healthy condition of muscle complexes require proper exercising, flexing and tensioning. Otherwise such complexes become lax and flabby. One of the major contributing reasons is the lack of sufficient blood seepage through infrequently exercised muscle complexes permitting such tissues to receive insufficient nourishment to maintain their full vigor and strength. It is well known that much of the blood circulation takes place through a network of microscopic capillary passages. For the most part the blood seepage through this fine network occurs in ...

Which Muscles Make a Smile? Ever wonder how many muscles it takes to make a smile? Ultimately, several muscles are necessary to create a smile, and these include: Buccinator: Provides support when chewing food, as it holds the cheek close to the teeth. The buccinator muscle is located in the cheek. Depressor Anguli Oris: Helps draw the lower lip downward. This muscle is located on the lower lip. Depressor Labii Inferior: Plays an essential part in drawing down the lower lip muscle. Levator Anguli Oris: Supports the nasolabial fold in the cheek. The muscle elevates the upper lip, thereby exposing the teeth when an individual smiles. Levator Labii Superior: Lifts the upper lip. It is located near the cheek bone in the area where the cheek bone meets the bones of the nose. Levator Labii Superior Alawque Nasi: Supports the facial muscles that enable an individual to sneer. Orbicularis Oris: Helps close the mouth and supports kissing and pouting movements. Risorius: Located on both sides of the mouth. The

Botulinum toxin type A (Botox; Allergan, Inc., Irvine, Calif) is widely used for facial rejuvenation and many other medical indications. It induces chemodenervation through its action on the presynaptic neuron, preventing release of acetylcholine, which leads to functional denervation of striated muscle for 2 to 6 months after injection. The use of botulinum toxin injection to reduce the facial scar is logical because this could reduce the tensile distracting force of the upper lip caused by the orbicularis oris muscle pull. Tollefson has demonstrate that botulinum toxin injection has decrease lip tension after primary lip repair in 3 children at 3-6 months of age The main aim of this randomized trial is to compare whether post-operative peri-surgical-injection of botulinum toxin into bilateral orbicularis oris muscles can improve scar formation for both primary and secondary cleft lip surgery ...

Its hypothesized that at the location where the facial nerve is compressed by an artery, ephaptic cross-transmission takes place between the nude facial nerve fibers and the sympathetic nerve fibers on the arterial surface. Thus action potentials could spread indirectly from one facial nerve fiber to several other facial nerve fibers (via the bridge of sympathetic fibers), or directly from the sympathetic fibers to facial nerve fibers. The investigators assume this is the electrophysiological basis of hemifacial spasm and its characteristic sign abnormal muscle response (AMR). If an abnormal potential from the offending artery to the facial muscles similar to AMR can be recorded, the hypothesis will be verified ...

And thats true. You do. But it seems as if the mere physical act of twitching a few facial muscles is enough to fool the brain into thinking that, If Im smiling, I must be happy so Id better start the happy time now..

One of the features that makes for an aged or unhappy appearance is that of drooping or downturned corners of the mouth. This is partially contributed to by the weight of falling midfacial tissues, but an overactive depressor anguli oris (DAO) muscle can also play a major role. This muscle originates from the lower jawline and comes upward and inserts into the modiolus muscle as well as interconnects with other adjacent facial muscles as well. (risorius, zygomaticus and depressor labii inferiorus) The action of the DAO muscle pulls the corner of the downward.. Botox injections into the DAO muscle can help lift and level out a downturned corner of the mouth. But to be effective, its injection must be precise due to numerous muscular interconnections.

Proprioception is a quality of somatosensibility that informs the central nervous system about the static and dynamics of muscles and joints. In muscles, the proprioceptive originates in the specialized sensory-organ-denominated muscle spindles. Nevertheless, facial muscles lack muscle spindles, but the facial proprioception plays key roles in the regulation and coordination of facial musculature and diverse reflexes. At the basis of these functional characteristics are the multiple communications between the facial and the trigeminal nerves, and neuroanatomical studies have demonstrated that facial proprioceptive impulses are conveyed via branches of the trigeminal nerve to the central nervous system. Substituting muscle spindles facial muscles contain other kinds of proprioceptors of variable morphology that display immunoreactivity for some putative mechanoproteins known to participate in proprioception (acid-sensing ion channel 2, transient receptor potential vanilloid 4, and Piezo2).
Facial muscles. Note: Facial muscles are almost all controlled by the 7th Cranial Nerve/Facial Nerve.. Many are very small and are either attached or inserted into another small muscle or the skin.. Muscles contracting pull the facial skin in a particular way creating facial expressions.. With age these facial expressions produce wrinkles.. Muscle tone also decreases with age.. Facial massage aims to improve the general tone of facial muscles.. Balancing the head and moving facial features use the muscles of the head, face, neck simultaneously.. Muscles of mastication (chewing):-. Movement of lower jawbone muscles (mandible).. ...
Once Botox/Dysport is injected into the skin, it blocks impulses from the nerves and facial muscles that cause expression lines. Within 7-10 days, following the injection, facial muscles will be unable to move as well and therefore tend to relax, leaving the overlying skin looking smooth and unwrinkled in appearance. Untreated facial muscles will continue to contract as normal and leave facial expressions unaffected. Dr. Stamatious approach to Botox/Dysport treatment is conservative, for a more natural appearance, without a frozen look. Although it is possible to raise the eyebrows, in most cases Dr. Stamatiou doesnt recommend it. The result is a refreshed, rejuvenated more youthful you! The duration of the result lasts between 3-6 months.. ...
The face has a complex muscular structure. Each facial muscle is constantly busy performing a multitude of movements. Consider the full range of emotions, movements and expressions your face makes every day. Even as you dream your facial muscles are working. When facial muscles are massaged and exercised regularly, all the metabolic processes are stimulated, which means facial circulation is improved, capillaries are strengthened, the facial lymph system is cleansed and the skin becomes blemish-free. Whatever your skin type, it will respond to facial massage positively, because massage keeps the collagen and elastin fibers wet and warm which encourages and stimulates their growth. With each facelift massage, the toning benefits increase because muscles have memory ...
To this study a group of 79 patients (36% male and 64% female), average age of 59 years old (ranging from 36 to 85 years old), showing atrophic maxilla, with less than 3 mm on sinus and no more than 5 mm on pre maxilla. On this group, patients presented 7 lacks of bone on maxilla 2 due to ablative surgery, 1 for previously bone graft failures, 4 due to failure of fibrous integrated implants. Associated with 185 zygomaticus fixtures, 225 conventional conic implants were installed on the anterior maxilla (ranging from 2 to 6 implants) and 11 implants were fixed on the pterigoideo bone in order to achieve better anchorage and force distributions among the implants for the prosthesis. ...
The present thesis investigated the relationship between rapid facial muscle reactions and emotionally relevant stimuli. In Study I, it was demonstrated that angry faces elicit increased Corrugator supercilii activity, whereas happy faces elicit increased Zygomaticus major activity, as early as within the first second after stimulus onset. In Study II, during the first second of exposure, pictures of snakes elicited more corrugator activity than pictures of flowers. However, this effect was apparent only for female participants. Study III showed that participants high as opposed to low in fear of snakes respond with increased corrugator activity, as well as increased autonomic activity, when exposed to pictures of snakes. In Study IV, participants high as opposed to low in speech anxiety responded with a larger difference in corrugator responding between angry and happy faces, and also with a larger difference in zygomatic responding between happy and angry faces, indicating that people high in ...
The interface box connects to your computer through a serial or USB port, The Brainfingers Software further amplifies your forhead signal and uses patented algorithms to decode your forehead signal into separate frequency bands or channels of information. Each channel or band becomes a virtual finger or Brainfinger. The total amplification of the resulting Brainfingers is over two million. In this way your Brainfingers become responsive to the subtlest of facial muscle, eye and brainwave activity. A total of eleven Brainfingers are computed by the software. These eleven Brainfingers span the controllable frequency range of your forehead signal. The three lowest Brainfingers are responsive to your lateral eye movements. The next three Brainfingers are responsive to alpha brainwaves. The next four Brainfingers are responsive to beta brainwaves and the highest Brainwave is responsive to your facial muscle activity ...

  • Trigger zygomatic and orbicularis oculi muscle contractions. (
  • Lines between your eyebrows (frown lines) and lines jutting from the corner of your eyes (crow's feet ) are thought to result from facial muscle contractions . (
  • No sensors had been able to measure these subtle muscle contractions before, but the innovative ones invented by Prof. Yael Hanein and sold by Israeli company X-trodes proved sensitive enough. (
  • Though Strack and colleagues convincingly employed methods that protected against demand characteristics (i.e., participants ostensibly were not aware of the fact that they were being asked to smile) [ 9 ], there are additional considerations when asking participants to actively alter their facial muscle contractions. (
  • Adjunctive treatment with Botox injections can also improve facial symmetry by reducing unwanted forceful contractions. (
  • Middle ear muscle contractions in response to non-acoustic stimuli: the role of voluntary motor activity. (
  • Background: Middle ear muscle contractions (MEMCs), which are activations of the stapedius and/or tensor tympani muscles, can be elicited by a range of acoustic and non-acoustic stimuli. (
  • Dynamic facial wrinkles, those caused by muscle contractions, can be minimized with BOTOX ® Cosmetic injections. (
  • We provide rehabilitation programs that help reduce manifestations of synkinesis, facial asymmetry, facial pains, tension and contractions of facial muscles, as well as restore facial expressions. (

  • Just as grimacing intensifies grip strength, making strong facial expressions can intensify experience of other emotions. (
  • Humans have around 24 unique facial muscles that are designed for making facial expressions. (
  • Humans have the amazing ability to make and discern up to 10,000 different facial expressions. (
  • Facial expressions are just what would be expected if man had been specially created to be a spiritual and emotional being in the image of God. (
  • It then focuses on how human facial expressions are an important example of overdesign where there are features and abilities that are far beyond what is required to survive. (
  • Previous research shows that the lack of facial muscle feedback due to BTX-induced paralysis influences subjective reports of emotional experience, as well as brain activity associated with the imitation of emotional facial expressions. (
  • The present study sought to address these questions by using functional magnetic resonance imaging to measure neural responses to angry and happy facial expressions in the presence or absence of facial paralysis. (
  • The current demonstration that amygdala responses to facial expressions were influenced by facial muscle paralysis offers direct neural support for the facial feedback hypothesis. (
  • Specifically, the present findings offer preliminary causal evidence that amygdala activity is sensitive to facial feedback during the perception of the facial expressions of others. (
  • It has long been suggested that feedback signals from facial muscle activity associated with forming facial expressions are critical to emotional experience [ 1 , 2 ]. (
  • Although facial expressions are part of the problem, other factors do act on the skin first. (
  • The face looks softer, and less "frozen", allowing for facial expressions. (
  • Developed facial muscles make it possible to squint, frown, and make other facial expressions. (
  • Wrinkles around the eyes, by their nature, are dynamic facial expressions and are most effectively treated with the application of botulinum toxin. (
  • The facial nerve controls the muscles that produce facial expressions, eye closure (blinking), tear and saliva glands, taste sensations in the tongue, and some of the smaller ear muscles. (
  • 1] Due to the reduced activity of the facial musculature in facial nerve palsy, it increasingly flattens . (
  • Bell palsy, also termed idiopathic facial paralysis (IFP), is the most common cause of unilateral facial paralysis. (
  • Bell palsy, more appropriately termed idiopathic facial paralysis (IFP), is the most common cause of unilateral facial paralysis. (
  • Bell palsy is an acute, unilateral, peripheral, lower-motor-neuron facial nerve paralysis that gradually resolves over time in 80-90% of cases. (
  • Bell's palsy is a sudden weakness of the facial muscles. (
  • A loss of facial movement is often called facial nerve palsy, since it is caused by damage to the facial nerve. (
  • Facial nerve palsy in children can come from a variety of causes, some congenital and some acquired in nature. (
  • Congenital facial nerve palsy is defined as palsy of the 7th cranial nerve that is present at birth or that occurs shortly afterward. (
  • The most recent estimate of the incidence of congenital facial palsy in the United States was found to be 2.1 per 1,000 live births. (

  • If your child's facial nerve palsy is related to stroke, she will receive comprehensive care through CHOP's Pediatric Stroke Program. (
  • Surgical treatment for facial palsy is used to improve facial symmetry, balance and motion, as well as to correct oral problems and incomplete eye closure. (
  • This procedure can restore spontaneous and emotionally driven motion, such as smiling, to children affected with facial palsy. (
  • Our Neuro-Proprioceptive Rehabilitation method targets synkinesis, facial tightness and pains, excessive tears, facial asymmetry and other residual effects of Bell's palsy, Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, congenital facial palsy and more. (

  • At Crystal Touch, we specialize exclusively in rehabilitation of residuals and complications after long-term facial palsy. (
  • Why do I lack tears after facial palsy? (
  • What is the atonicity of facial muscles after Bell's palsy? (
  • Let's discuss 3 reasons why your face may feel stiff and tired after facial palsy. (
  • Chronic facial pains, facial spasms and contractures of facial muscles that occur after Bell's palsy are NOT the return of the facial palsy. (
  • Crystal Touch Bell's Palsy Clinic is one of the world's leading providers of non-invasive solutions for residuals and complications after long-standing facial palsy. (
  • If the patient complains of contralateral weakness or diplopia in conjunction with the supranuclear facial palsy, a stroke or intracerebral lesion should be strongly suspected. (
  • Patients who have bilateral facial palsy must be evaluated for Guillain-Barré syndrome, Lyme disease, and meningitis. (
  • Overall, the evidence on physiotherapy management of Bell's Palsy suggests that individualized facial exercises in cases that are chronic or moderate paralysis may enhance facial function. (
  • There is evidence from a single study of moderate quality that facial exercises benefit individuals with chronic facial Palsy compared to controls. (
  • Bell's Palsy is a type of brief facial paralysis that may impact a person's day-to-day activities, communication with others, self-esteem, and quality of life. (
  • If the disease progresses, more severe symptoms can occur, such as severe headaches and neck stiffness, paralysis of the muscles of the face (facial palsy) or other muscles, severe nerve pain, additional rashes, irregular heartbeat, and arthritis with joint swelling. (
  • The contraction of his orbicularis oculi muscles. (
  • The muscle pain in legs is caused by an intense or active contraction of the muscle cells. (
  • The others obtained satisfactory symmetric faces in the static state and in voluntary contraction of the transferred muscles. (
  • First, the contraction of the facial muscles that turn up the corner of your mouth and sometimes opening the mouth or parting the lips to show teeth. (
  • This muscle is so-named because contraction of this muscle creates the facial expression of superiority that a prince would make. (
  • The leading causes are ultraviolet light, repeated contraction of facial muscles and loss of volume. (
  • Children with facial paralysis associated to facial expression. (
  • Cara de pocos amigos" is the phrase used to describe a grumpy facial expression, but literally it means "a face that makes few friends. (
  • Botox injections lessen the ability of selective muscle movement, which eases the appearance of expression lines around the eyes , forehead, and mouth over time to reduce wrinkles. (
  • Lie to Me " can be better understood with a better know ledge of the muscles of facial expression! (
  • An activated zygomaticus major muscle is involved in creating an expression in the human face known as a smile. (
  • Eyebrow position, contour, and movement are important features of facial expression. (
  • More broadly, these data confirm the utility of using BTX to address the effect of facial feedback on neural responses associated with the perception , in addition to the experience or expression of emotion. (
  • To put it another way, this method does not allow us to distinguish between whether the observed outcomes are due to a change in brain activity that is responsible for producing the emotional facial expression (efferent) or a change in facial feedback signals to the brain (afferent) [ 10 , 11 ]. (
  • Dr Paul Ekman, a famous facial expression researcher and author describes many kinds of smiles, from the real smile to the deception smile. (
  • The Procerus is a muscle of facial expression of the nose (it could also be considered to be a muscle of facial expression of the eye). (
  • however, the facial muscles of expression are what control the smile. (
  • Together they provide efferent innervation to the muscles of facial expression and to the lacrimal and SALIVARY GLANDS , and convey afferent information for TASTE from the anterior two-thirds of the TONGUE and for TOUCH from the EXTERNAL EAR . (
  • Malfunction of this nerve can result in paralysis or weakness of the muscles of the ears, eyelids, lips, and nostrils. (
  • The most common unwanted side effects can include bruising, pain and temporary weakness of the muscles around the injection site. (
  • But it can also cause neck weakness or facial weakness, or even weakness of the muscles needed for breathing. (
  • The curved arc of the temporal line is palpable at the lateral limits of the forehead and is made more apparent with the action of the temporalis muscle with mastication. (
  • Eye closure can be improved with a variety of procedures including lid loading, temporalis muscle transfer, or fascial or tendon slings. (
  • Background: Linear scleroderma has been associated with muscle spasms ipsilateral to skin lesions. (
  • Typically, spasms are located in trigeminal innervated muscles, leading to hemimasticatory spasm (HMS). (
  • Objective This review aimed to clarify the relevant factors affecting MBS in children and to examine the influence of an incompetent lip seal (ILS) on facial soft tissue form in preschool-aged children. (
  • They are also called injectable facial fillers, injectable cosmetic fillers or soft tissue fillers. (
  • If we think of the teeth as the masterpiece, the frame is the surrounding soft tissue (such as the gums, jawbones, facial muscles, lips, and skin). (
  • When one contracts the forehead muscle it causes elevation of the brows with simultaneous development of horizontal wrinkles in the forehead. (
  • In some patients Botox injections can be used to relax the frontalis muscle to get rid of forehead wrinkles. (
  • BOTOX quickly and effectively blocks nerve signals that cause muscles to contract, thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles. (
  • For patients wishing to erase the signs of age and enjoy a more youthful appearance, Botox® injections effectively treat facial wrinkles and lines, minimizing and sometimes eliminating them altogether. (
  • In normal rats, the extraocular muscles are innervated by unilateral-ipsilateral brainstem motor nuclei, except for the superior rectus and superior oblique muscles, which are innervated by bilateral, primarily contralateral, nuclei. (
  • Background: In 1990, Jiang Hua introduced a new method using one-stage reconstruction with free abductor hallucis muscle transfer for dynamic reanimation of established unilateral facial paralysis. (
  • Conclusions: Free abductor hallucis muscle transfer is safe and effective in dynamic reanimation of longstanding unilateral facial paralysis. (
  • This surgery may be used for patients who have facial paralysis on one side of the face (unilateral) or both sides (bilateral). (
  • When cases are unilateral, a two-stage procedure usually is preferred using a cross facial nerve graft technique to innervate the free muscle transfer. (
  • Clinical features of the disorder that may help to distinguish it from other causes of facial paralysis include the sudden onset of unilateral facial paralysis and the absence of signs and symptoms of CNS, ear, and cerebellopontine angle disease. (
  • 2: Use the part shown in the illustration with the index finger in the shape of a hook to massage the orbicularis oculi muscle around the eyes. (
  • Eye closure was quantified using electromyographic (EMG) recordings of the orbicularis oculi muscle. (
  • It can be worsened by activities such as eating and other facial movements. (
  • Observe facial and leg movements. (
  • Faulty or incomplete regeneration of the damaged facial nerve can result in paresis (slight paralysis) or synkinesis (involuntary facial movements), and can leave these patients with abnormal or even distorted facial motion. (
  • Facial nerve paresis and paralysis is a disorder of the facial cranial nerve - a nerve that originates in the brain (as opposed to the spine). (
  • Dwarf breeds and lop ear breeds tend to be at increased risk of developing facial nerve paresis and paralysis. (
  • Before her operation, this 57-year-old facial paresis patient complained, in addition to other complaints, of significantly more difficulty breathing through her nose on the right side - the affected side of her face. (
  • Facial motion disorders refer to a group of conditions characterized by absent or abnormal facial motion, including facial paralysis, paresis (partial paralysis), facial weakness or spasm. (
  • Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationship between masseter muscle thickness, facial morphology, and mandibular morphology in Korean adults using ultrasonography. (
  • Materials and Methods: Ultrasonography was used to measure the masseter muscle thickness bilaterally of 40 adults (20 males, 20 females) and was performed in the relaxed and contracted states. (
  • Facial photos and panoramic radiography were used for morphological analyses and evaluated for correlations with masseter muscle thickness. (
  • We also evaluated the correlations of age, body weight, stature, and body constitution with masseter muscle thickness. (
  • Facial photography showed that bizygomatic facial width over facial height was correlated with masseter muscle thickness in both sexes in the relaxed state, and was statistically significantly correlated with masseter muscle thickness in males in the contracted state. (
  • In panoramic radiography, correlations were found between anterior angle length and posterior angle length and masseter muscle thickness in females, and between body length and posterior angle length, between anterior angle length and body length, between ramal length and body length, and between body length and condyle length in males. (
  • Conclusion: Masseter muscle thickness was associated with facial and mandibular morphology in both sexes, and with age in males. (
  • Ultrasonography can be used effectively to measure masseter muscle thickness. (
  • Reversely, stretching of the hamstring muscles is shown to change the pressure pain thresholds over the masseter and upper trapezius muscles . (
  • When paralysis is bilateral, the motor nerve to the masseter muscle may be used bilaterally to innervate the muscle transfer in separate single stage procedures. (
  • Comparative data from young men and women on masseter muscle fibres, function and facial morphology. (
  • Relaxing the frontalis muscle with Botox causes the brows to drop. (
  • I heard that injection of Botox to jaw muscles may cause facial paralysis. (
  • There is little chance of facial nerve paralysis when injecting Botox into the jaw muscle, but it can occur rarely. (
  • Muscle paralysis is usually permanent, but as muscle healing and thickening develops, a natural 'tuck up' may occur that reduces the facial asymmetry (lopsidedness). (
  • Some things that determine asymmetry are growth patterns, facial muscles, and features of the skull. (
  • Asymmetry in the facial features can be caused by many things, including brain injury or stroke. (
  • This condition causes facial asymmetry, with one eye lower than the other and a drooping forehead and cheekbone on one side. (
  • You might experience pain or discomfort in case of performing exercises that require significant effort, a high level of energy or muscle effort. (
  • So, this time, we asked Ai Tanaka, an All about small face guide who has gained popularity in facial muscle exercises and is active as a media appearance and a skin-beautifying instructor, about the secret to eliminating dullness and leading to radiant skin. (
  • Patients should perform facial exercises for a few hours after the procedure. (
  • It is non-invasive and does not involve typical facial exercises. (
  • If the problem involves articulation or the motor component of speech, exercises involving the lips, tongue or palate are advised depending on which muscles are affected. (
  • A speech therapist gives specific exercises to strengthen the weak muscles of articulation. (
  • Facial exercises in the early or acute phases of more serious cases might improve recovery time and long-term consequences. (
  • Specialized facial exercises can help to improve face function, particularly for individuals with moderate paralysis and persistent problems. (
  • The zygomaticus major muscle is a paired facial muscle that extends between the zygomatic bone and the corner of the mouth. (
  • One muscle (like the zygomaticus) is underactive. (
  • We have been using Zygomaticus activation and Corrugator muscle inhibition EMG feedback for positive affect facilitation, intensification and "smile rehabilitation. (
  • Caccioppo mentions one Japanese study in which a group of human cadavers were dissected and two percent of them were found to be lacking their zygomaticus-- the primary smile muscle. (
  • In a classic demonstration by Strack and colleagues, participants judged the funniness of cartoons while unknowingly contracting their zygomaticus (the facial muscle used during smiling) by holding a pen in their mouths [ 9 ]. (
  • such that they found the cartoons to be funnier when contracting the zygomaticus muscles compared to a control condition where the zygomaticus muscles were not contracted. (
  • Case Report: We report a case of linear scleroderma associated with spasm of muscles innervated not only by the trigeminal but also by the facial nerve. (
  • This 1965 photograph depicts the face of a 46-year-old man that displayed the characteristic facial muscle spasm known as rictus, caused by the toxins produced by the bacterium, Clostridium tetani . (
  • It is believed to result from birth trauma, intrauterine posture, intrauterine compression, or congenital aplasia of the facial nerve nucleus. (
  • [6] The red nucleus may play an additional role in controlling muscles of the shoulder and upper arm via projections of its magnocellular part. (
  • [7] [8] In humans, the red nucleus also has limited control over hands , as the rubrospinal tract is more involved in large muscle movement such as that for the arms (but not for the legs, as the tract terminates in the superior thoracic region of the spinal cord). (
  • A full-body massage is the best to fight stress since every muscle gets worked. (
  • The Fascial Gun KH-320 muscle massager uses a vibration therapy method that combines a specific amplitude, vibration frequency and torque of the massage element. (

  • PC associated with the T1313M mutation is a possible cause of persistent distal hand weakness and Phenotypic variation within the family was remarkable, as the two younger affected patients did not present with persistent weakness or muscle atrophy. (
  • No hypertrophy or atrophy of any muscle is noticed. (
  • It is used by professional athletes and people suffering from multiple sclerosis, arthritis and muscle atrophy. (
  • While this concept may sound good, numbing facial muscles at such a young age can contribute to muscle atrophy and droopiness down the road. (
  • One of the most common problems seen at the Center For Facial Appearances in Sandy Utah are patients who are concerned with wrinkling of the forehead, heavy or droopy eyebrows, complaints of visual fatigue, or difficulty with vision when tired. (
  • The frontalis muscles are a pair of vertically oriented muscles in the forehead that lift the eyebrows. (
  • This reflex were patients contract the frontalis muscle to keep the eyelid skin off of the eyelashes causes the frontalis muscle to fatigue which patients will describe as visual fatigue, heavy eyelids or eyebrows. (
  • If you are having trouble with wrinkling of the forehead, heavy or droopy eyebrows, visual fatigue, or difficulty with vision when tired then contact The Center For Facial Appearances at 801-997-9999 to discuss options available to help you. (
  • Using stickers printed on soft surfaces containing electrodes that monitor and measure the activity of muscles and nerves, a team of researchers led by Prof. Dino Levy from Tel Aviv University, discovered that some people involuntarily activate muscles in their cheeks and eyebrows when they lie. (
  • Common symptoms of facial nerve injuries include lack of motion on one or both sides of the face, drooping of the eye and mouth on one side of the face, inability to generate normal facial motion such as smiling or raising the eyebrows. (
  • The danger is that they usually lack sufficient training on where to administer the injections in relation to the facial muscles and nerves, as well as the resources to handle an emergency. (
  • We consider sex differences in human facial morphology in the context of developmental change. (
  • Signs of too much stress include chronic muscle tension (especially in the neck and shoulders), short temper, anxiety, excessive worry, insomnia, fatigue, and the feeling of being burned out. (
  • Working just the neck and back muscles is also very beneficial. (

  • Another study found that Gen Z are 10% more likely to have a facial care routine than millennials, with 3 out of 4 stating they started using a facial moisturizer and cleanser before the age of 18. (
  • Your examination confirms that she has profound symmetrical proximal muscle weakness. (
  • Although this clinical picture is similar to systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), the cutaneous findings along with the profound proximal muscle weakness make juvenile dermatomyositis (JDM) the more likely diagnosis. (
  • The patient had an overt phenotype with facial rubeosis, central obesity with supraclavicular fat accumulation, cervical fat pad and proximal muscle weakness. (
  • Muscle weakness is severe and progressive and flaccid, and reduced muscle tone (hypotonia) is common. (
  • As predicted, amygdala activity in response to angry faces was attenuated when the corrugator/procerus muscles were paralyzed via BTX injection but then returned to its original state after the effects of BTX subsided. (
  • Moreover, they are already no strangers to cosmetic procedures such as facial fillers and body contouring. (
  • A fake smile only uses the zygomatic major muscles, in turning up the corners of the lips. (
  • One of the 43 muscles in the human face. (
  • The Hands Free Facial Muscle Toner will exercise the muscles in your face without asking you to do anything other than put it on. (
  • During this procedure, a segment of muscle from elsewhere in the body, typically the gracilis muscle in the leg, is brought to the face with its vascular and neural supply. (
  • Unfortunately, director Steve Bendelack spends far too much time focusing his attention on Atkinson's admittedly uncanny ability to flex those facial muscles in places that a face just shouldn't go. (
  • This is because of different facial features on either side of the face. (
  • For example, an asymmetrical face with mostly left-sided facial features will have a right-sided facial shape and vice versa. (
  • When patients first develop enough excess of skin in the upper eyelid they reflexively begin contracting the frontalis muscle to pull the brows up and simultaneously pull up the eyelid skin so that it no longer touches the eyelashes. (

  • Muscle stiffness and joint pain increase and the person may become unable to walk, and unable to care for him or herself. (
  • The spectrum of myopathies ranges from predominantly muscle disorders such as the muscular dystrophies, congenital myopathies, and myositis to multisystem disorders with muscle tissue involvement such as metabolic myopathies and myotonic dystrophy. (
  • Whether congenital or acquired, facial nerve dysfunction can cause significant functional and social problems for affected children. (
  • Your doctor will begin by differentiating between one-sided and symmetrical disease, facial nerve paralysis from pure ear infection, and will also look for other neurological weaknesses. (
  • This is because people with symmetrical faces are more likely to have weaker immune systems , be more prone to disease, and have less muscle development. (
  • Favorable long-term results demonstrate that the authors' technique is an alternative method for facial reanimation. (
  • After facial reanimation surgery, exercise therapy strengthens and speeds muscle recovery and is essential to the success of this surgery. (
  • The course of the frontal branch of the facial nerve passes through the temple and forehead, placing this nerve at risk of injury at the time of surgical dissection. (
  • The whole facial area is divided into four parts (two areas for cheeks, one area for upper forehead, and one area for chin). (
  • The current gold standard for dynamic reconstruction of facial motion is microneurovascular muscle transfer. (
  • The approach to the classification of neuromuscular disorders has aimed at distinguishing primary disorders of the muscle (myopathies and myositis) from disorders affecting peripheral nerves (peripheral neuropathies) (1). (
  • Moroever, an inability to move the eyes and facial muscles may result in a decreased secretion of tears, leading to additional pathology of the eyes. (
  • The inability to generate normal facial motion, including the essential act of smiling, can be psychologically debilitating. (
  • Evidence that this mutation at codon 704 (T704M) in exon 13 of the skeletal muscle voltage gated sodium channel gene (SCN4A) is a common cause of hyperPP/PMC is supported. (
  • Things are really taking shape as the skeletal and nervous systems begin to connect and muscles throughout his body begin to work. (
  • Literally the mind-body connection, it's the cabling behind your "gut instincts", governing things like the heart rate, digestion, sweating and skeletal muscles. (
  • Muscle fasciculations and infantile reflexes are absent. (
  • AFM affects the area of the spinal cord called the gray matter of the spinal cord, and this causes the sudden onset of muscle weakness and loss of reflexes, usually in the arms or legs. (
  • Loss of muscle tone and reflexes in the affected extremities. (
  • At some point all of us experience some kind of muscle pain in legs and there are three different kinds of them that are associated with exercising: soreness during the time performing an exercise or immediately after the exercise, delayed onset of the muscle pains, and then there are the muscle cramps. (
  • In 1903 Steiner defined JDM as an acute, subacute or chronic disease of unknown origin, characterized by a gradual onset with vague and indefinite prodromata followed by edema, dermatitis, and multiple muscle inflammation (1). (
  • This sudden onset can be frightening for patients, who often fear they have had a stroke or have a tumor and that the distortion of their facial appearance will be permanent. (
  • If a patient has gradual onset of facial paralysis, weakness of the contralateral side, or a history of trauma or infection, other causes of facial paralysis must be strongly considered. (
  • The recent surge in use of botulinum toxin (BTX) to induce temporary muscle paralysis offers a unique opportunity to directly test this "facial feedback hypothesis. (
  • The overall goal of this project was to examine relations between voluntary facial rnuscle activity and MEMCs. (
  • This is called Ataxia or a lack of voluntary co ordination of the muscles and their movement. (
  • In case you are doing some isometric or static workout routines, you shouldn't experience such muscle pain in legs. (
  • Muscle Banding Facial Muscle banding is a term Danné Montague-King came up with in the 1970s when he was researching how to strengthen facial muscles through isometric exercise response. (
  • Twelve weeks later, axonal regeneration in the autograft and brainstem somatotopic representation of the reinnervated extraocular muscles were investigated by use of histological and retrograde axonal tracing techniques. (
  • CONCLUSION: The central rearrangement of the extraocular muscle nuclei after facial-to-oculomotor nerve anastomosis represents an original example of plasticity. (
  • Extraocular muscle involvement is not seen, and facial weakness is frequently minimal or absent. (
  • If you breathe high levels of hexachloroethane vapor, your facial muscles may twitch or you may have difficulty moving. (
  • Here the person may have difficulty moving, and become slower, suffers stiff muscles, poor balance and poor coordination. (
  • In addition to facial animation, children with facial motion disorders can have difficulty with feeding, swallowing, chewing, speaking, and closing their eyes, which can lead to acquired eye disease. (
  • So, what are the most common causes of facial pain? (
  • Sometimes, facial pain can be caused by something as simple as an injury. (
  • There is no study that would show us why the legs' muscle pain occurs, but it has been observed that usually this happens in case of those muscles that have a limited blood supply, so it could be caused by a byproduct of the muscle metabolism. (
  • Nonetheless it is thought that the legs' muscle pain in the contracting muscles is multifactorial and it is related to the combination of ionic shifts at the level of the cell membrane, acidic intermediate metabolites and changes in the muscle cell proteins. (
  • This kind of legs' muscle pain can be experienced 24-48 hours after working out, and it usually peaks at 48 to 72 hours. (
  • All this indicates that the source of the legs' muscle pain is actual muscle damage. (
  • The muscle pain in legs known as muscle cramp appears when the muscles are used beyond their accustomed limit. (
  • Even more, this kind of legs' muscle pain is one of the most common complaints of marathon participants. (
  • Discover how Raleigh Facial Pain can help! (
  • Learn about the different levels of damage resulting in facial pain. (
  • The Fascial Gun KH-320 Muscle Massager is used to reduce muscle pain, improve blood circulation, and relieve joint pain after a hard workout or prolonged physical workout. (
  • The effect is achieved by acting on the inner layers of the tendons, muscle tissue and fascia, which do not cause pain. (
  • Ask the patient if he or she has experienced trauma, which may account for the pain and facial paralysis. (
  • The eyelid and/or corner of the mouth on the afflicted side droops or has less muscle tone than normal. (
  • Specifically, intentional alteration of facial muscle activity calls for novel efferent signals to be sent to the facial muscles, which might influence how we experience emotion independent of any change in the afferent facial feedback signals to the brain. (
  • This indirect mode of increasing hamstring flexibility can be taken into consideration while managing individuals with hamstring muscle tightness. (
  • Early evaluation for facial nerve injuries is important because timely medical or surgical treatment can significantly improve outcomes. (
  • Then, the ipsilateral facial nerve was exposed at the stylomastoid foramen and connected side-to-end to one extremity of a peroneal nerve autograft. (
