A Five Year Old Boy with Bell's Palsy

A five year old boy fell from his bike and within one week had symptoms of Bell's Palsy. He was unable to close his right eye or wrinkle his brow. He was brought to a neurologist who told the parents it would be 4 or 5 month's recovery time. Chiropractic examination revealed a right lateral atlas (C-1) and the child was adjusted once per week for three weeks at which time has was 90% improved.
