Neurological Diseases and Movement Disorders

Neurological diseases and neuromuscular disorders affect a person’s ability to control muscular movements. These diseases tend to be extremely complex and are best diagnosed and treated by specialists who have experience in applying neuroimaging and critical care techniques specific to the needs of each patient. Accurate diagnosis is vital to developing an appropriate treatment plan. Each disorder can affect individuals in different ways, and treatments may vary depending on the type and severity of the symptoms.

These diseases and disorders include Guillain-Barré syndrome, multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, encephalitis, meningitis, brain abscesses, ataxia, Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), dermatomyositis, Friedreich’s ataxias, muscular dystrophies and myopathies.
