The physical therapy treatment for Bell's palsy includes Electrical stimulation of affected facial muscle and mime therapy. Aim: To seek out whether there is any significant difference between effectiveness of electrical stimulation with Mime therapy and electrical stimulation with motor imagery technique in patients with Bell's Palsy. Objective: To improve motor function and strength of facial muscles. Methodology: On the premise of inclusion and exclusion criteria 30 participants were elect. They were treated with Electrical stimulation with Mime therapy and electrical stimulation with motor imagery technique for 5 days / week for 6 weeks, subsequently that re-assessment was infatuated HBS, MMT and SD curve. Results: using SPSS Version 26. Parametric test was used. In Group A improvement was seen The data was analyzed.
