About Movement Disorders

Movement disorders are neurological conditions that affect speed, fluency, quality, and ease of movement. Neurological movement disorders can be classified into two basic categories:

  • Hyperkinesia: disorders characterized by excessive movement, such as tremors and tics.
  • Hypokinesia: disorders characterized by a slowing or absence of movement, such as gait problems.

Impaired motor control functions can be symptomatic of a wide range of neurological diseases and disorders.

"I am very pleased – actually ecstatic – about my last month coming to NeuroHealth. I have never before received such help, and I now feel better. I will let anyone who asks know about NeuroHealth. If they suffer migraines, they will hear from me of your commitment to helping patients."

"I'm always very comfortable and feel that all my questions have been answered. Today I brought up a new concern, hand and wrist pain, and was referred to Dr. L'Europa for a nerve test and to occupational therapy immediately. I am completely satisfied with the service today and always."
