Neurology is the medical specialty that focuses on the evaluation and treatment of injuries and conditions affecting the central nervous system, which includes the brain and the spinal cord, the peripheral nervous system, and the autonomic nervous system.
The nervous system is a highly complex and critical component of the human body, responsible for transmitting signals between different parts of the body through nerves and neurons.
From migraines and memory disorders to dizziness and balance disorders, neurological conditions can affect all areas of the body.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, it’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible before your injury or condition worsens.
- Consistent or worsening migraines
- Neck, back, arm, and leg pain
- Loss of balance when walking
- Weakness in a specific area of the leg or arm
