Les prises en charge orthophonique et kinésithérapique des paralysies faciales périphériques chez l’adulte : complémentarité et collaboration

Abstract : Peripheral facial paralysis leads to many aesthetic, functional, psychological and social consequences for people living with it. A speech-language therapy and/or physiotherapy is then recommended to help them mitigating discomfort and difficulties. The literature on the rehabilitation of this pathology is split into two groups: speech language therapy and physiotherapy practices are described separately without any interdisciplinary work being mentioned. Thus, we wanted to take stock of the professional practices of these two disciplines to highlight a potential complementarity, in which case an interdisciplinary collaboration could be relevant. To that end we developed two similar questionnaires intended to identify the professional practices of therapists and know their view about a potential interprofessional collaboration. These questionnaires were exclusively distributed online. They helped us collecting 56 responses. Results show that speech-language therapists’ goals and interventions are more concentrated on functional recovery than the goals of physiotherapists. Furthermore, tools and techniques used by professionals vary greatly and they don’t always match with the area of expertise of the latter. There is therefore a partial complementarity between the professional practices of therapists and of physiotherapists. The majority of therapists work in isolation with their patients and are ignorant of the practices of their colleagues. Many look at speech-language therapy or at physiotherapy as an additional potentiality to the work they offer and they find it worthwhile to consider interdisciplinarycollaboration.
