Went to see an osteopath doctor today for other reasons but we talked about my Bells Palsy. As he was working on me he started to work on my face. My face is still sort of swollen from the trauma of the BP and has been like that for years. It's better and nowhere near as bad as it was but it is still there.
When he started to work on my jaw and the inside of my cheek I could not believe the intensity of pain I still had. Tears were welling up in my eyes and I had to take a break and a breath occasionally but the fascinating thing is that I knew he was doing exactly what needed to be done.
I have been feeling new twinges and perhaps new nerves are waking back up, but they have been bunched up for such a long time that it makes sense that they need to be carefully released and gently stretched so the channels can be opened and the nerves relax again.
