Neurology Q & A

What is Neurology?

Neurology is a branch of medicine focused on diagnosing, treating, and preventing illness and/or disorders that affect the nervous system. There are dozens of neurologic conditions, many of which don’t present obvious symptoms.

The neurology specialists at MidJersey Orthopaedics diagnose and treat neurologic conditions that affect both children and adults. 

What are Some Common Health Problems Neurology Treats?

The neurology specialists at MidJersey Orthopaedics regularly work with their patients to diagnose and treat a variety of neurologic problems, including:

  • Movement disorders like Parkinson’s and tremors
  • Neuromuscular disorders
  • Concussions
  • Epilepsy
  • Headaches and migraine
  • Stroke
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

  • Sleep disorders
  • Brain tumors

 

The team also diagnoses and treats spine-related conditions that affect neurological function. 

How are Neurologic Problems Diagnosed?

The diagnosis of neurologic problems depends on the symptoms and your health history. Following a consultation and exam, your physician might recommend:

  • Electroencephalography: Electroencephalography is a diagnostic test that monitors your brain’s electrical function. The team at MidJersey Orthopaedics offers 24, 48, and 72 ambulatory monitoring. By gathering information about your brain’s electrical functions, your physician can pinpoint the underlying source of your discomfort.
  • Neurophysiological Testing: Neurophysiological tests work to measure your overall neurological function. There are many different types of neurophysiological tests. Each provides key insights into certain areas of brain function. They can also alert your doctor to potential problems or deficits.

 

After gathering all of the necessary information to make a proper diagnosis, your MidJersey Orthopaedics physician develops a custom treatment plan to ease uncomfortable symptoms and improve your quality of life.

How are Neurology Problems Treated?

Treatment for neurology-related health problems depends on the type and severity of the condition. The team at MidJersey Orthopaedics offers a full suite of neurology treatments, including:

  • Botox® injections
