What is Neurology?

Neurology is the medical field dealing with functions and disorders of the nervous system: brain, spinal cord, and nerves. Neurological disorders include migraine headaches, multiple sclerosis, and diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. Neurologists are able to diagnose and treat many of these issues.

What to expect

When you visit a neurologist, the first thing they will do is take an extensive and detailed medical history. It is important that they know your previous medical history to determine underlying causes for any issue you may be dealing with. Your first appointment will focus on your history and symptoms, and you will get to know your neurologist.

You will be able to discuss your next steps and testing options to feel comfortable with your healthcare.

Dealing with neurological issues can be worrisome; let our care team put you at ease. Our whole-body approach to healthcare ensures your health and well-being come first.

Common Neurological Disorders

A Nervous disorder is a disorder affecting nerves not only in the brain, but throughout the body. Some of the most common neurological disorders include:

  • Headaches and Migraines
  • Epilepsy
  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Neuropathy
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Strokes

Common Neurological Tests

Neurologists test the nervous system to understand each patient's neurological disorder. The results enable them to determine the best treatment. These tests can be simple, like reflex tests and brain scans (CT, MRI, EEG, for example). Some procedures are more complex, like lumbar punctures for spinal fluid testing.
