Our Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Center provides the type of care found only at an academic medical center.
Movement disorders are a group of conditions characterized by loss of normal movement or the presence of abnormal movements. Although weakness may be a symptom, movement disorders typically result in other problems including slowed movement, difficulty with smooth, coordinated movement or involuntary movement. A variety of other symptoms may be present as well, depending on the specific condition.
There are many diseases and conditions that result in these symptoms, and a detailed evaluation by a physician with specific training and expertise in this area is often needed to make a diagnosis. The neurologists at the Neurosciences Institute have all had additional specialized training in the diagnosis and management of these conditions.
