Seeing a Neurologist May Be the Answer

Your general practitioner or chiropractor may recommend that you see a neurologist. A neurologist is a doctor who specializes in conditions that affect the brain, spinal cord and the nervous system. The nervous system can be very complex and if it is injured or shows signs of dysfunction, it can have a negative impact on body functions.

Neurologists do not perform surgery, but are able to diagnose the root of chronic pain, which could be a symptom of another medical condition. Once the diagnosis has been obtained through observation or diagnostic tests, the neurologist will develop a pain management program. This program may include physical therapy, rehabilitation or medication. In some cases where surgical intervention is needed, the neurologist will consult with a neurosurgeon before any major surgery is performed.
