Neurological and movement disorders encompass various conditions that affect the nervous system and an individual's ability to control movement. These disorders can have multiple causes, including genetic factors, environmental factors, infections, and degenerative processes.
Several neurological and movement disorders impact your balance, coordination, and posture. Causes range from infections to genetic factors to brain cell degeneration. We treat movement disorders at Mid-Atlantic Brain and Neurological Rehabilitation in Silver Springs, MD.
Symptoms of Neurological and Movement Disorders
Although there are many similarities in the symptoms of neurological and movement disorders, each case is unique. Symptoms include shaking, twisting, and jerking. You may also have muscle spasms and experience impaired activities. Slowness, stiffness, and rigidity are also signs that you may have a movement disorder. It's important to note difficulties with walking, sleeping, or performing daily tasks.
Why to Seek Assistance
You may notice a dramatic improvement in quality of life following chiropractic treatment for neurological disorders. These disorders often cause injuries, falls, and social isolation. To stay active or keep your loved one busy, seek professional help dealing with these conditions:
- Neuropathy is a condition that affects the nerves, causing symptoms such as pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness in different parts of the body.
- Brain injury can result from trauma, stroke, or tumor. Other causes can affect cognitive and other habits.
- Sports injury damages the muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons, or other tissues.
- Ataxia impairs the coordination of voluntary movements, such as walking, speaking, or swallowing.
- Tourette syndrome causes involuntary and repetitive tics, such as blinking, grunting, or swearing.
What Is Functional Neurology?
Functional neurology techniques can alleviate the symptoms of neurological disorders. It is a specialized branch of chiropractic care that can improve your brain function and central nervous system performance. Functional neurology triggers the brain in underactive areas and restores the equilibrium of your entire nervous system.
If you find it difficult to move how you intend, it might be time to reach out for assistance. Movement disorders cause headaches and fatigue, among other symptoms.
