Although perhaps surprising, these conditions are incredibly common. 为 example, a child may suffer from an unexplained seizure, a football player may sustain a concussion, and older adults are at higher risk of experiencing 中风. 你的神经 can help determine how best to treat a neurological condition so the symptoms subside without worsening the symptoms or prolonging 恢复时间. 为 example, a neurologist always advises athletes to refrain from further athletic activity until they have fully recovered from a concussion to prevent a potentially devastating second concussion, called second impact syndrome, which can cause permanent brain damage.

Do I Need to See a Neurologist?
When an injury, illness, or disease affects your central nervous system, brain, or spine, expert care is a must. Generally, patients seek their primary care doctor's help first if they experience symptoms like chronic headaches or numbness/pain (however, we do not require referrals at Terrebonne 将军). These symptoms may indicate a brain and/or nervous system problem, and you will likely be referred to a neurologist for further testing and 治疗. A neurological exam is important if you have noticed troubling symptoms such as memory difficulties, muscle weakness, tremors, loss of coordination, or communication challenges.
During a neurological exam, your physician will conduct several evaluations, which may include cognitive testing, as well as examining your sensory function, balance, coordination, gait, language comprehension, eye control, 还有很多其他技能. Through these noninvasive, painless tests, your doctor will be able to discern follow-up diagnostic exams that may be necessary, such as imaging studies with a CT or MRI scan. 你的神经 will administer a variety of tests to diagnose your condition, such as impact testing, to make a detailed assessment of the memory to pick out very subtle symptoms that may not be seen through basic exams.
