Care when it comes to treating
brain and nervous system disorders.
Neurology is the branch of medicine that is concerned with the study and treatment of disorders of the nervous system. As a specialist, the neurologist sees patients with a wide range of problems and may act as a patient’s principal or consulting healthcare provider, while the family healthcare provider, or primary care provider, is generally in charge of a patient’s total health care.
Neurologists treat disorders of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves, including, but not limited to, the following:
- Muscle disorders and pain
- Neuritis and neuropathy
- Brain and spinal cord tumors
- Multiple sclerosis
- Parkinson disease
- Myasthenia gravis
- Muscular dystrophy
- Alzheimer disease and other forms of memory problems
Successful treatment starts with an accurate diagnosis. You might undergo several tests so that your doctors can identify exactly what’s causing your signs and symptoms.
Telehealth services are also available. Call 931-783-4901 for more information.
