MAMANI PACARI, Marcelino Prudencio; MAMANI ORTIZ, Yercin; ILLANES VELARDE, Daniel  e  ROCHA ALBINO, Marcos Rene. Radiofrequency vs muscular Faradization to functional rehabilitation of peripheral facial paralysis patients. Rev Cient Cienc Méd [online]. 2016, vol.19, n.2, pp. 5-13. ISSN 2077-3323.

Introduction: Radiofrequency is a new technique, which has had great results in the functional rehabilitation of other neurological pathologies. Objective: To compare of radiofrequency and muscular faradization efficacy; in the physiotherapeutic functional rehabilitation for acute peripheral facial paralysis. Materials and methods: We conducted a randomized clinical trial of therapeutic equivalence verification, between Radiofrequency versus muscular faradization, in the functional rehabilitation of peripheral facial paralysis; With a sample composed of 60 people, between 20 and 40 years of both sexes; Divided randomly into 2 homogeneous groups of 30 patients per group; Using Radiofrequency (G2 and G3 dosing) in one, and muscular faradization (patient tolerance intensity of 5 to 35 HZ) in the other. Results: 94% of signs to facial paralysis disappeared with radiofrequency, and only 66% with muscular faradization. In all cases the statistical differences were significant with a p-value= <0001, evaluated by t-Student test. Conclusions: Radiofrequency technique is more effective in relation to muscular faradization applied in patients with peripheral facial paralysis.
