Neurologists treat conditions that affect the brain and the entire nervous system, including the spinal cord. They also treat the interactions between the nervous system and muscles. Since the nervous system is the “control center” of the body, neurologists treat a wide range of conditions. These include:
• Epilepsy and Seizures
• Headaches and Migraines
• Memory Problems, including Alzheimer’s Disease
• Multiple Sclerosis
• Parkinson’s Disease
• Pinched nerves
• Balance problems
• Chronic numbness or tingling
