Bell’s palsy is an idiopathic condition caused by dysfunction in cranial nerve VII also known as facial nerve leading to unilateral lower motor paralysis of facial muscles. Many studies were published which showed conventional and recent advance treatment protocols for acute bell’s palsy as compared to sub-acute bell’s palsy. As, there was dearth in the literature for Matrix rhythm therapy in sub-acute Bell’s Palsy. The present study aimed to evaluate the effect of matrix rhythm therapy combine with electrical stimulation in sub-acute Bell’s palsy using House-Brackmann Scale. Matrix rhythm therapy is a recent advance modality which (MRT) helps to renew more Cellular logistics that is removal of waste products, embellish microcirculation of oxygenated blood, relaxes muscles and amplify the process of regeneration and healing. The intervention was given for 6 days which included patient education, matrix rhythm therapy with neuromuscular electrical stimulation. The study showed reduced scores in House - Brackmann scale indicating faster recovery in sub-acute bell’s palsy..
