What are neurological disorders?


Neurological disorders are disorders that affect the nerves through the human body and the spinal cord, as well as the brain. Neurological disorders can evolve from abnormalities in the brain, spinal cord, or other nerves that can lead to various differing symptoms.

Hundreds of neurological disorders exist, affecting the central and peripheral nervous systems. The central nervous system involves the brain and the spinal cord, and the peripheral nervous system consists of nerves in different areas that branch out from the brain and spinal cord into other parts of the body.

The nervous system is responsible for a wide range of bodily processes, so when it is disrupted, it can affect an individual in a myriad of different ways, including influencing their movement, speech, sensations, swallowing, eating and drinking, and breathing.

It can also have mental impacts, affecting their memory, learning, mood, and much more. Neurological disorders can range from a simple headache to severe and debilitating chronic conditions.

What are the most common neurological disorders?


The most common neurological disorder is a headache, which can present in different forms, including migraines, tension, and cluster headaches.

Many individuals think of headaches as an acute concern when they occur on a chronic basis or present alongside severe symptoms, it may necessitate treatment.

Strokes are another common neurological disorder and often occur when an individual experiences damage to the brain as a result of an impairment to the arteries leading to the brain.

Seizures and epilepsy result in changes in the brain’s activity, which can lead to memory loss, brain damage, and more when left untreated.

Different forms of dementia, including Alzheimer’s, are also considered neurological disorders. Parkinson’s disease is a progressive nervous system disorder that impacts an individual’s movement and often worsens with age.

What causes neurological disorders?


Neurological disorders stem from various causes and can present with different degrees of severity. They can often occur as a result of structural, chemical, or electric abnormalities or other changes within the nervous system. When it comes to the causes of neurological disorders, there is no one-size-fits-all answer.

Instead, they range from genetic disorders, health, lifestyle and environmental problems, infections, past or current to injury to the brain, nerve, or spinal cord, and more. Some neurological disorders are more likely to have been passed on if an individual’s parents had them, as specific genes can become mutated or defective.

This can be particularly common among the onset of Huntington’s disease and muscular dystrophy. Certain infections, which can be caused by viruses or bacteria, are capable of inflaming and harming the nervous system and in the absence of treatment can lead to long-term neurological issues.

How are neurological disorders diagnosed?


Neurological disorders are diagnosed during a comprehensive assessment by specialists at Global Neuro & Spine Institute. Given the wide range of potential causes and types of neurological disorders providers will conduct a detailed and comprehensive diagnostic screening.

This includes a physical examination and review of patient symptoms, as well as a review of family and individual history and a range of neurological testing, tests for which will be dictated by each individual’s specific circumstances.

It’s helpful for patients to keep track of a list of symptoms, any current medications, as well as when their symptoms tend to flare up and what seems to trigger or worsen them. In some cases, tests such as CT scans, MRIs, blood chemistry, and urinalysis may be used depending on the nature of the condition.

Global Neuro & Spine Institute has access to a wide range of cutting-edge diagnostic and curative services. In some cases, nerve blocks could be utilized to isolate the root cause of the concern.

Providers will employ every method at their disposal to make an accurate diagnosis of the cause, nature, and severity of the neurological disorder. This will inform a customized treatment plan tailored to each patient’s specific needs, with the end goal of helping patients to achieve swift and lasting relief from their symptoms by understanding the root cause of their condition.
