What Is Neurology?

Neurology and neurosciences are the study and treatment of diseases and disorders affecting the human nervous system. Neurologists focus on understanding the human nervous system and how it works to treat diseases. They specialize in the organs that make up the nervous system including the brain, spinal cord, muscles and the nervous nets throughout them. In order to determine health, neurologists often use tests that measure a combination of muscle strength, movement, balance, sensation, memory, speech, reflexes, language and cognitive abilities to judge the health of the nervous system.

Treatments We Provide

Neurology treats any part of the nervous system that is malfunctioning and seeks to restore neurological function and health. This can mean treating anything from a brain issue to a neurological issue in an appendage. Neurological diseases and disorders can affect a wide variety of bodily actions and functions from motor functions to cognition, to speech and language. Neurological conditions can be broken up into those that originate in the central nervous system or the peripheral nervous system. However, the systems are so connected that a disorder in either will affect all parts of the nervous system.

Our neurological specialists treat a wide variety of neurological conditions including:

  • Diseases of the central nervous system
    • Diseases affecting cognitive function such as Alzheimer’s
  • Diseases affecting movement:
    • Lou Gehrig’s disease
    • Multiple sclerosis
    • Parkinson’s disease
    • Cerebral palsy
  • Diseases of the brain and peripheral nervous system
  • Speech and language disorders
  • Stroke
  • Cerebrovascular diseases
  • Epilepsy and seizure disorders
  • Headaches

In order to diagnose and propose a course of treatment for these and other neurological conditions, our specialists use a combination of CAT scans, EEG, EMG/NCV, lumbar puncture and MRI scans to look into the nervous system and attempt to determine the cause of the malfunction or disorder. Treatments for neurological disorders are varied and can involve anything from physical therapy and lifestyle changes to surgery or medication.
