Neurology

Neurology is the study of the nerves and the nervous system, and it deals with how our brain communicates with the rest of our body through those nerves. Neurological issues can be incredibly tricky to diagnose, particularly since they manifest themselves in a variety of ways. There are more nerves in the human body than there are stars in our galaxy, so the possibilities are endless. Some people might have memory loss while others have migraines, and some have tingling in their legs while others deal with sleep disorders.

The human brain controls everything in the body, and the brain sends messages to the rest of your body through the central nervous system and nerves. When something is amiss with even the smallest nerve, your entire body’s communication system can be disrupted, which leads to dysfunction in the body and various ailments, illnesses, and pain. No matter what sort of injury you might be dealing with, if it is neurological in nature, our team of specialists and physicians at AICA Orthopedics can assist you in becoming pain-free. Call our offices today to learn how our team can help you!

Reasons to See a Neurology Specialist

A large number of neurological conditions present in ways that might not give you an indication that you should see a doctor. Since neurological issues are not always immediately evident, you should be aware of the symptoms that do suggest a neurological problem. These include headaches (especially migraines), epilepsy, vertigo, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, sleep disorders, fibromyalgia, constant pain, and frequent tremors. Additionally, if you’ve been diagnosed with a brain tumor, spinal cord injury, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease), you should consult with a neurology specialist right away to determine the best course of treatment.

Other signs of a neurological condition may also include frequent migraines, neck pain, back pain, arm pain, leg pain, balance problems, concentration issues, and short-term memory loss. All of these symptoms and diagnoses are reasons to schedule an appointment with a neurology specialist at AICA Orthopedics.

Finally, if you have recently been involved in any sort of incident where you suffered harm to your head, neck, back, or spine, and particularly if you are experiencing any of the aforementioned symptoms, consult a neurologist right away to be certain that your accident didn’t leave you with permanent damage. It is unfortunate how many injuries with neurological implications go undiagnosed and untreated because the person suffering doesn’t recognize the pain as such. Furthermore, if you have been hurt due to the fault of another party, and are having the costs of your care covered as a part of insurance or a settlement, it is important to have a thorough check-up with a physician to make sure the costs associated with any neurological damage are accounted for in your claim. Our team can provide you with diagnostic support and itemized treatment plans to assist you in doing this. Don’t let a one-time event cause you pain that lasts for an extended period of time. Contact our team to obtain peace of mind today!

Our team of neurologists will utilize the most advanced diagnostic tools to determine the cause of your health concerns, and then they will work with you and with other specialists at AICA Orthopedics to determine the best treatment plan to bring about health and healing.

Neurology Treatments

No matter what type of health issue you’re facing, our doctors will ensure that you are getting the best treatment available. We always aim to begin with non-invasive treatment options so that we don’t put you through more than is necessary. Surgical interventions can be incredibly helpful and provide you with immediate relief, but they almost always leave you with a longer road to recovery in terms of pain and healing at different incision sites and extensive physical therapy. Our neurology doctors work with other specialists on our staff, including orthopedic doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists and more to give you the most comprehensive care available. Many individuals with neurological conditions can see complete healing with just chiropractic care, while others may need a neurosurgeon to do surgery to experience relief from their condition. If you require surgery, we can offer most of the procedures you might be prescribed right in the comfort of our offices. Whatever route we believe is best will be fully discussed with you, and we will continue using innovative technology and advanced medical treatments to get you the relief and healing that you desire. It is our belief that whichever treatment path allows you to experience relief of your symptoms quickly and completely is the correct choice for you.
