The Lindens Clinic Ltd

A Centre Of Excellence Providing Rehabilitation For

Facial Palsy And Peripheral Nerve Injury

The clinic was founded in 1987 by Diana Farragher, OBE, who conducted a series of research projects into the treatment of facial paralysis.

Our team of expert physiotherapists provide a total treatment package, which includes Trophic Electrical Stimulation, EMG biofeedback, neuromuscular retraining & passive soft tissue techniques.
