What disorders get treatment at a neurological clinic?
A variety of neurological disorders get diagnosed and treated at a neurological clinic. Some of these disorders include:
Sleep disorders include problems such as narcolepsy, sleep apnea, hypersomnia, and insomnia. Any disease that causes a person trouble with either too much sleep or not enough sleep qualifies as a sleep disorder.
Amnesia occurs when you suddenly can’t remember information about your life or yourself. This memory disorder occurs for a variety of reasons, which might include traumatic brain injury or other brain disorders.
Dementia is an overall word for a variety of symptoms that affect memory and a person’s thinking skills. To have dementia, a person must have severe enough memory loss to have difficulty with daily activities of life. Alzheimer’s disease remains the most well-known of the various types of dementia, but there are many more types of dementia besides Alzheimer’s disease. For instance, vascular dementia occurs after a stroke and is the second most frequently occurring type of dementia. Signs of dementia include loss of memory, problems with communication and language, having a hard time with mental focus, difficulty with reasoning and judgment, and unusual visual perception. It is crucial for a person with suspected dementia to seek medical advice to determine the cause and possible treatment for dementia.
In Parkinson’s disease, the brain stops producing dopamine, which is a chemical that helps the brain coordinate movement. Having Parkinson’s causes problems with stiffness, slowness, balance and walking as well as constipation, memory issues, depression, and other non-movement related health problems. Every person with Parkinson’s has a little bit of a different experience with the disease, which makes it hard to diagnose in some cases.
Researchers don’t know what causes MS. But people with MS experience a chronic disease of the central nervous system. The brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves become affected. Some people won’t have many symptoms or may experience tingling in some areas of their bodies.
Cerebral palsy remains a blanket term for a group of disorders that cause problems in a person’s ability to move, have the correct posture, and maintain their balance. Abnormal brain growth or damage to the developing brain disrupts a person’s ability to control their muscles. Sometimes people with CP also have intellectual disabilities, hearing and vision problems along with movement issues. Others experience much more severe symptoms such as mobility problems, vision loss, hearing loss, speech problems, and paralysis. Spine and joint disorders might also occur with cerebral palsy.
