Specialty Care for the Brain & Nervous System
Neurologists specialize in diagnosing and treating disorders of the nervous system, which includes the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles.
Common conditions or diseases treated by these specialists are:
- Multiple sclerosis
- Seizure disorders
- Parkinson’s disease
- Carpal tunnel syndrome nerve testing
- Numbness in feet, hands or other extremities
- Dementia (persistent mental confusion)
- Problems involving the brain and spine
Some people are born with neurological conditions. People can also develop nerve-related problems after an accident or as they get older.
If you have serious or ongoing nervous-system health issues, your primary-care provider may refer you to neurologist for help.
