Neurological Disorders

Symptoms that are common to most neurological conditions include differences in speech patterns, loss of balance and coordination, numbness in a single extremity, weakness, memory loss, difficulty moving, tremors, rigid muscles and difficulty swallowing.

Our neurologists have subspecialty training and are highly trained to diagnose and treat a full-range of neurological conditions, including:

  • Multiple sclerosis – a nervous system disease that affects your brain and spinal cord.
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease – a debilitating condition that attacks the central nervous system.
  • Migraines – very painful type of headaches during which a person is very sensitive to light and sound.
  • Epilepsy and seizure disorders – a brain issue that occurs due to sudden, abnormal electrical activity in the brain.
  • Alzheimer's disease and dementia – two of the most common forms of memory loss, most occurring in older adults.
  • Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders – a condition that affects nerve cells, or neurons, in a part of the brain that controls muscle movement.
  • Peripheral neuropathy, myasthenia gravis and neuromuscular and peripheral diseases – conditions caused damage to the peripheral nervous system (the nerves outside of the brain) which transmits information from the brain and spinal cord to every other part of the body.
  • Guillain-Bare – a disorder in which the body's immune system attacks part of the peripheral nervous system.
