Neurology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of nervous system disorders. The organ structures that concern neurology refer to the central nervous system: brain, spinal cord, surrounding structures and blood vessels that supply them, and the peripheral nervous system (cranial nerves, nerve roots and spinal ganglia, peripheral nerves, after leaving the spinal canal, including links with the skeletal muscles).
Most often, a neurological examination is backed by investigations such as: lumbar puncture and analysis of the cerebrospinal fluid, electroencephalogram (EEG), electromyogram (EMG), radiological examination (skull and spine X-ray), cervical cerebral vascular Doppler, cranial tomography (CT) scan, brain or spine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
The most common neurological disorders are: cerebrovascular accidents (CVA), epilepsy, head trauma, neoplastic diseases of the nervous system, motor disorders (Parkinson's disease), disorders of the peripheral nerves, muscles or neuromuscular junction (peripheral neuropathy, myasthenia gravis), sleep disorders, migraines.
Although neurology has been considered, since its beginnings, as a specialty with accurate diagnoses, treatment options were quite limited until recently. Fortunately, research in the field and clinical studies have made it possible for many neurological disorders to currently benefit from effective treatments. One such example is the improved treatment for patients who have had strokes, following the establishment of a clear distinction between ischaemic stroke (infarction) and haemorrhage using means of neuroradiological diagnosis. Patients with Parkinson's disease have a wide range of drugs with favourable effects available for their treatment.
At Veroniki Life Clinic, treatments and recovery plans are tailored to each case and are based on classical approaches, combined with holistic ones to regain an optimal health and maintain it in the long run.
