Neurologic diseases are caused by the dysfunction of the brain and/ or spinal cord and nerves. This dysfunction can result in physical symptoms such as difficulty moving and speaking, as well as psychological symptoms. Many neurologic diseases are “congenital,” meaning they were present when the person was born. Others develop after birth or are “acquired,” and some may be the result of a traumatic episode where the brain or spinal cord sustains an injury.
There are more than 600 neurologic diseases. Some of the most common conditions include:
- Degenerative diseases, where nerve cells are damaged or die, such as Parkinson’s disease
- Movement Disorders
- Injuries to the spinal cord and brain
- Diseases caused by gene abnormalities
- Diseases of the Central Nervous System
