Facial Injuries

Trauma to the face and head can be caused by a number of events, from explosions to road traffic accidents and blunt force trauma. The impact of these events can be significant, causing bony and / or soft tissue injury, as well as nerve damage. These injuries can affect vision, speaking, non-verbal communication, hearing, sense of smell, and eating and drinking. Many patients who experience a facial injury will be managed surgically and then require post-operative rehabilitation. Physiotherapists play a significant role in the post-operative phase, using manual techniques and exercise therapy to help clients restore function in their face.
