Also I'm a PT, just my 2 cents about the patient... the patient being an infant, it might be a better option to try pnf techniques, like quick stretch, , stimulating techniques, ice,tapping, etc, etc, etc. ( search the web, refer books) even though you're doing the stimulation with your finger, the baby may perceive the current at a different intensity, moreover, as with most cases of bell's palsy, as PTs we are treating the symptoms, and our primary duty is to keep the muscles from being wasted, while the actual "cause" is being treated and corrected. most of the times in such young babies, even a small amount of sti mulation will go to a large extent, and most manual pnf techniques for stimulation can be done very gently using your fingers, at the same motor points you use for stimulation, also since the baby is just one month old, you can suggest the usual method of taping ( u can use tapes that hospitals use for babies, safe for their skin ( of course ask mother to chek the skin for redness, etc... and stop it if there is adverse reaction), you can demonstrate to the mother the massage, and passive excercise techniques that she can do, as Im sure the baby enjoys the mom's touch... have the mother demonstarte the techniques..


Also what is the cause of the bell's palsy... was the baby born with it, or is it something new... what is the cause?

hi robin
i tried the technique on my friend's hand prior to trying it on the baby.she is not showing ant irritation.i dont think its causing any discomfort as the current is going thru my fingers and i could judge the intensity of current.of course the intensity the child percieving will be a bit less.i feel its better than fiddling with electrodes directly on baby

   Seems liek u mistook ERB'S PALSY to be BELL'S PALSY, Goodone ! And Binmath it's nice to hea that it works fine..i had been using the conventional direct electrode method while stimulatin infants and i dint encounter much a prob as infants skin havent shown much of a resistance to elec current so the intensity used was less and dint cause much discomfort either.
