What are movement disorders, and how are they treated?
Movement disorders is a term used to describe several individual neurological conditions that cause voluntary or involuntary movements.
Common conditions that fall under movement disorders include:
Depending upon your specific condition, movements may be quick or “jerky” while other conditions cause the slowing of normal movements.
The Board Certified Neurologists at OrthoNeuro have helped thousands of patients with movement disorders live an active and healthy lifestyle using a variety of treatment options.
There are a variety of medications used to treat movement disorders that your OrthoNeuro Neurologist will discuss with you.
Specific medications are used to manage specific conditions and examination and testing will help determine which condition you may be suffering from and which medication may be right for you.
Your OrthoNeuro Neurologist will monitor your reaction to these medications and adjust dosages as needed until your symptoms are controlled. In some instances, a surgical procedure may be recommended.
If you have been suffering the symptoms of a movement disorder, schedule an appointment with one of our Board Certified Orthopedic Neurologists at one of our 7 convenient locations throughout Greater Columbus.
We will evaluate your unique lifestyle and goals to determine which type of treatment is best for you. Best of all, most patients can be seen within 24 hours of making an appointment.
