What are the conditions that our Neurologists can treat?
Epilepsy : is a disorder which is caused by abnormal electrical activity in the brain. In some cases epilepsies are a result of a genetic disorder otherwise it could be as a result of a brain injury such as traumas or strokes. While epilepsy is more common in young children and older people, they can develop in a person at any age. It is characterized by unpredictable seizures and loss of consci ... ousness and thus affects a persons safety. Epilepsy is usually treated with medication and in certain cases surgery.
Dietary and lifestyle changes along with medication have been known to reduce the occurrence of the seizures.
Vertigo : is characterized by a feeling of dizziness or a feeling like the things around you are moving even when they are not. Though it can happen to a person of any age it is common in people over 65 years. The symptoms of vertigo include a sense of spinning, a loss of balance and this feeling can persist even when the person is still. It usually occurs when there is a problem with the brain, inner ear or sensory nerve pathway. The most common causes of vertigo are either inner ear infections or certain diseases of the ear. There are medications that can relieve some vertigo symptoms but in some cases surgery is recommended if other treatments prove ineffective.
Dementia : refers to a host of conditions that include symptoms of mental decline, disorientation, memory impairment and trouble with proper communication like jumbled speech.
While there is medication and therapy that can help manage these symptoms, this condition cannot be completely cured just managed to slow down the rate of deterioration.
-Migraine : refers to a headache of varying intensity that can be accompanied by nausea and sometimes sensitivity to light or sound. These headaches usually have triggers that include certain foods, stress, hormonal changes, or environment conditions. There is medication that can help manage these headaches.
Alzheimers Disease: is the most common cause of dementia. It is a progressive disorder in which brain cell connections and the cells degenerate and eventually die slowly destroying memory and other important mental functions. While this condition cannot be cured completely, treatment can help in managing the conditions.
Parkinsons Disease : is caused by a disorder of the central nervous system that leads to difficulty with walking, coordination and balance. It often begins with tremors in one hand and gradually progresses as the disease worsens over time. The damage to nerve cells in the brain causes the levels of dopamine to drop leading to Parkinsons symptoms. This is again a degenerative disease in which treatment can manage the symptoms but this condition cannot be completely cured.
