  • Parkinson’s Disease
    Parkinson’s disease is a progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects voluntary movement.

    • Parkinson’s Disease Symptoms
      Symptoms vary person to person and typically affect one side of the body first even as they worsen. Early signs are mild and go unnoticed. The general symptoms of Parkinson’s disease include:

      • Tremor
        Tremor in a limb, often in the hand or fingers at rest, a back-and-forth rubbing of your thumb and forefinger, known as “pill-rolling”
      • Slowed voluntary movement (bradykinesia)
        Reduced ability to move and walk, and dragging feet with smaller steps as well as difficulty in rising from sitting/getting out of a bed/chair
      • Orthostatic hypotension
        Lightheadedness or dizzy when standing
      • Rigid muscles
        Muscle stiffness and abnormal tone in the body limiting your motion and causing pain
      • Impaired posture and balance
        Stooped posture, unsteady balance
      • Loss of automatic movements
        Decreased facial movement like blinking, smiling or swinging your arms when you walk
      • Dysarthria
        Difficulty in speaking and speech-related problems like speaking softly, quickly, with a slur or hesitation, monotonous without inflections

  • Epilepsy
    Epilepsy is a neurological (central nervous system) disorder characterised by seizures and short periods of unusual behaviour, sensations and loss of consciousness at times, due to disruption of the nerve cell activity in the brain.

    • Epilepsy Symptoms
      Seizure signs and symptoms are:

      • Involuntary and uncontrollable jerking movements of the limbs
      • Loss of consciousness and awareness of surrounding
      • Psychic symptoms of confusion and staring blankly
  • Cerebrovascular Disease, such as Stroke and Paralysis

A neurologist will prescribe a series of scans, tests, and examinations to identify the way a stroke has affected the neurological system. The standard battery of tests will include MRIs, CT scans, Ultrasound, blood draws, angiograms and echocardiograms. These tests will shed light on the severity of the stroke as well as the likelihood of another stroke (clotting factor).
Continuous monitoring and regular checkups can help neurologists detect clots and clotting sources before they can cause additional strokes.

  • Demyelinating Diseases of the Central Nervous System, such as Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a potentially disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). In MS, the immune system attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between your brain and the rest of your body. Eventually, the disease can cause permanent damage or deterioration of the nerves.
Signs and symptoms of MS vary widely and depend on the amount of nerve damage and which nerves are affected. Some people with severe MS may lose the ability to walk independently or at all, while others may experience long periods of remission without any new symptoms.

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS, is a progressive nervous system disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, causing loss of muscle control.
ALS often begins with muscle twitching and weakness in a limb, or slurred speech. Eventually, ALS affects control of the muscles needed to move, speak, eat and breathe. There is no cure for this fatal disease.
