Neurological conditions that affect movement are known simply as movement disorders. These disorders can disturb the speed, ease, or quality of the sufferer’s movement. Abnormal speed or ease of movement – known as dyskinesia – can include excessive or involuntary movement – hyperkinesia – or slowed or absent voluntary movement – hypokinesia.
Our expert neurologists specialize in treatment for Parkinson’s disease, which is a chronic movement disorder. This disorder can start with tremors in the hands and can include symptoms like slow movement, stiffness, and loss of balance. Although it cannot be cured, treatments can help relieve symptoms and make life easier on the patient.
