Our physicians are specialists in a wide variety of movement disorders. They have extensive experience with common and unusual conditions that affect motor control and gait.
Conditions we treat include:
- Lack of muscle coordination during voluntary movements such as walking or picking up objects. Ataxia is a sign of an underlying condition that can affect your movements, speech, eye movements, and ability to swallow.
- Condition in which your muscles contract involuntarily and cause uncontrollable, repetitive, or twisted movements of the affected body part. Symptoms may be mild or severe, and they may interfere with your ability to complete day-to-day tasks.
- Huntington's disease
- Inherited disease that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain. Huntington's disease impacts functional abilities and usually results in movement, cognitive, and psychiatric disorders.
- Parkinson’s disease
- Chronic, progressive neurological disorder due to damage or death of dopamine-producing cells in the brain. This results in a decrease of dopamine, leading to muscle tremors, rigidity of movement, fatigue, and difficulty maintaining balance.
- Tremor disorders
- Disorders of the nervous system that cause rhythmic shaking. Shaking can affect almost any part of your body, but it most often occurs in your hands.
