Abstract: Background: Bell's palsy is an acute-onset Peripheral facial pathology and is the commonest explanation for lower motor nerve fiber facial palsy. 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. Conclusion: Electrical stimulation with mime therapy is effective to improve strength and motor function in patients with Bell's Palsy.
