Neurological Disorders

Neurological disorders impact the lives of millions of Americans. They are disorders that impact the nervous system, more specifically diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system, and often require medical care by a specialty physician.

Neurological disorders impact the brain, cranial nerves, nerve roots, neuromuscular junction, peripheral nerves, spinal cord and or muscles. Collaboratively, they manage the inner-workings and movement of the body. And, when something goes wrong with a part of the nervous system, problems such as speaking, swallowing, learning and even breathing may arise.

Some of the more common neurological disorders seen in people include Alzheimer Disease, Cerebrovascular Diseases, including brain tumors, headache disorders such as migraine headaches, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Stroke, traumatic disorders of the nervous system due to head trauma; Dementia and neurological disorders that are a result of malnutrition.
