What is neurology?

Neurology is the specialty dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the brain, spinal cord, muscles and nerves.

What conditions to neurologists treat?

Common conditions that neurologists can manage include:

  • movement disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease,
  • various tremor disorders, such as essential tremor and dystonia,
  • stroke,
  • epilepsy,
  • pain management, including botulinum toxin treatment,
  • neuropathy, and
  • myopathy

What conditions do your neurologists specialise in?

We can give opinions and manage all neurological disorders, but our neurologist has an interest in movement disorders – neurological diseases presenting with tremor or other involuntary movements, slowed movements, gait and balance disorders.

What treatment options are available?

As always, the treatment suggested by your neurologist will depend on the condition(s) being treated and your medical and personal history. However, the treatment for movement disorders may include:

  • medications,
  • botulinum toxin, and
  • functional neurosurgery (Deep Brain Stimulation).
