What Are Neurological Disorders?
Neurological disorders affect the brain as well as the nerves found throughout the body and the spinal cord. These three parts of the body work together as the nervous system to control everything in the body. If something is not functioning correctly within one of these components, it can lead to difficulties learning, breathing, swallowing, speaking and moving as well as problems associated with mood, senses or memory.
We help and educate patients and their loved ones/caregivers in ways in which to improve their ability to perform daily activities in an effort to overcome challenges with: speaking, swallowing, voice, memory, problem solving, reading, organizing and expressing their thoughts. These neurological disorders include Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s Disease, Huntington’s Disease, Multiple Symptom Atrophy, Parkinson’s Disease, Epilepsy, brain injury and stroke.
