Movement Disorders

Movement disorders are neurological conditions that affect the speed, fluency, quality, and ease of movement. Abnormal fluency or speed of movement (dyskinesia) may involve excessive or involuntary movement (hyperkinesia) or slowed or absent voluntary movement (hypokinesia). The spectrum of movement disorders includes, but is not limited to:

  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Dystonia
  • Chorea and Huntington’s Disease
  • Ataxia
  • Tremor and Essential Tremor
  • Myoclonus and Startle
  • Tics and Tourette Syndrome
  • Restless Leg Syndrome
  • Stiff Person Syndrome
  • Gait Disorders
  • Spasticity

In recent years, there has been tremendous growth in new diagnostic information, pharmacological and neurosurgical treatments for movement disorders, as well as a greater understanding of impaired motor control function. Our team assesses every aspect of a patient’s history and lifestyle to develop the most effective treatment protocol and uses ongoing research to provide patients with the most advanced treatment techniques available today.
