Reading Time: 4 minutes

Who Are Neurologists?

Neurologists are the people who study all about our brains. Neurology is a branch of medicine, linked to the study and treatment of disorders that are related to our nervous system. Our nervous system is a complex, sophisticated system that regulates and coordinates the activities in our body. It is all about our neurotransmitters sending signals to our body so it can function in a specific way. Neurology is a study that tells us how our neurotransmitters work.
The people who specialise in neurology are known as neurologists. Neurologists are the ones that treat our brain, disorders that affect the brain, spinal cord, and diseases such as:

  • Cerebrovascular disease
  • Demyelinating diseases of the central nervous system
  • Headache disorders
  • Brain infections and peripheral nervous system
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s.
  • Epilepsy, commonly known as seizures
  • Spinal cord disorders
  • Speech and language disorders

Neurologists do not perform surgery. If one of their patients requires surgery, they refer them to the neurosurgeons.

What Is A Neurologist’s Job?

Neurologists are responsible to diagnose and treat neurological conditions. Or anything which is wrong with our nervous system. Symptoms that commonly neurologists diagnose and treats are:

  • Co-ordination Problems
  • Weakness in the muscles
  • Lack of concentration and reactions
  • Confusion
  • Dizziness
  • Upset body functions

People who are having problems with their senses, such as touch, vision, or smell, may also need to see a neurologist.

What Is Parkinson?

Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder. It affects our brain in a different way. It affects the neurons in a specific area of our brain. Parkinson’s symptoms generally develop very slowly over the years. It does not show signs all at once. The symptoms often vary from one person to another due to the diversity of the disease and its effects. People with Parkinsons experience:

  • Tremors
  • Bradykinesia
  • Limb rigidity
  • Gait and balance problems

The cause of Parkinson remains unknown until now. Although there is no specific cure, treatment is recommended according to the condition of the patient. Whether it is medications or surgery, it can not fully cure this disease. While Parkinson’s itself is not fatal, disease complications can be serious.

How Is Parkinson’s Treated?

Treating Parkinson is all about managing symptoms. Medications for Parkinson can only help the patient control tremors, stiff muscles, and slow movements. For this, doctors may also suggest physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy based on how it helps the patient. In severe cases, doctors recommend surgery.
