Neurology is a branch of medicine or biology concerned with the study and treatments of the nervous system. Anatomy, function, and organic disorders of the nerves and nervous system all regulate and coordinate body activities. Neurology focuses primarily on the brain and spinal cord which includes nerves and muscles. Appointments and exams may focus on muscle strength and movement; balance, ambulation, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, language, and other cognitive abilities. There are many common ailments that may compel a patient to see a neurologist: treatment of headache, stroke, dementia, radiculopathy, neuropathy, stroke, dementia, seizures, epilepsy, ADHD, Parkinson’s disease, Tourette’s syndrome, multiple sclerosis, head trauma, sleep disorders, neuromuscular disease, and more. Physicians focused on neurology are called neurologists. When seeing a neurologist, the doctor will frequently review the patient’s health history with special attention to the current condition. The neurological portion of the exam may include mental status, function of the cranial nerves, strength, coordination, reflexes, and sensation. Diagnostic processes may include CT (computed axial tomography) scan, MRI or MRA scans, lumbar punctures or other kinds of testing. The process will help the neurologist determine where problems may or may not exist in the nervous system.
