Movement Disorders Clinic
Movement disorders are a group of neurological conditions characterized by abnormalities in the quality and quantity of spontaneous movements. They range from reduced movement (hypokinetic disorders) to severe, continuous and excessive movement (hyperkinetic disorders). These disorders affect the speed, quality and ease of movement but do not lead to weakness or paralysis
In children the disorders are often described by the type of movement observed, such as dystonia, choreoathetosis and tremors. Most movement disorders result from abnormalities in the basal ganglia, which are groups of neurons deep in the brain responsible for the planning and execution of movement.
We perform a thorough evaluation including complete medical and family history and create an individualized diagnosis treatment plan. Depending on the age, type of movement disorder and the severity, treatment can include medication, behavioral therapy, injections or surgery.
We run our Movement Disorder Clinic every Tuesday between 1.00 pm to 3.00 pm. You can fix an appointment with the secretary on our regular contact number.
