Our brain and nervous system are truly miraculous. They control how our bodies work and make us uniquely human – allowing us to create, remember, laugh and dream. When something goes wrong with your nervous system, you may have trouble moving, speaking or learning. And that can be scary.
Stroke or Alzheimer's disease often come to mind when you think about neurological disorders. But there are many other diseases and conditions that affect the brain and its ability to control the body. Fortunately, many can be successfully treated, and these treatments are constantly improving.
If you suspect you or a loved one may be suffering from a brain or nervous system disorder, the first step is to see a Mercy neurologist.
