Movement disorders are a group of nervous system conditions that cause involuntary or abnormal movements, such as twitches, shakiness, or slowed movements. Movement disorders are often debilitating or make you feel embarrassed. Treatment from Complete Neurological Care can reduce unpleasant symptoms.
Common types of movement disorders include:
Your provider diagnoses the type of movement disorder you have and its cause to develop an effective treatment plan.
To determine what’s causing a movement disorder, your Complete Neurological Care specialist reviews your medical history and symptoms. They complete a physical exam and neurological examination.
That might include electroencephalogram, or placing metal electrodes against your scalp to measure brain electrical impulses, or evoked potential to stimulate specific neural pathways. Electromyography measures muscle-electrical activity to assess the cause of tremors. Your specialist may recommend you undergo blood tests or imaging procedures, too.
Common movement disorder treatments include:
Your Complete Neurological Care specialist personalizes each treatment to match your needs, lifestyle, and preferences. They follow up with you to ensure your treatment works effectively.
