Common Neurological Disorders – Conditions & Treatment

Common Neurological Disorders – Conditions & Treatment

Neurological disorders are the major diseases of the brain, spine and the nerves that connect them. These disorders include more than 600 diseases, such as brain tumours, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, and stroke.

Conditions of Neurological Disorders

Brain Tumors

It is the second leading cause of cancer in children under age 15 and the second-fastest-growing cause of cancer in senior citizens.

ALS

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive degeneration of nerve cells that control muscle movements. The disease is a common motor neuron disease among adults.

Brain Aneurysm

It is a balloon or bubble-like growth that typically builds where a major artery branches into smaller arteries, often at the base of the brain.

Memory Disorders

Memory loss may happen due to many conditions like high blood pressure, small strokes in the brain, diabetes, nutritional deficiencies and alcoholism.

Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a disorder usually occurs by recurrent seizures. Seizures are the results of abnormal activity of nerve cells, called neurons, in the brain. 

Epilepsy has many real causes, such as an imbalance of nerve signalling chemicals, or abnormal nerve connections that build after an injury such as head trauma or stroke.

Headache

It is a very common symptom and can affect people of all ages. Severe or recurring headaches, especially those accompanied by other symptoms, maybe a sign of a more dangerous disorder and should be treated by a specialist.

Parkinson’s Disease

It is a neurological disease that damages brain cells that control movement. Symptoms include stiffness, tremors, and poor balance, as well as stress, depression or dementia.

Peripheral Neuropathy

This disorder is a common neurological disease resulting from damage to the peripheral nerves. Peripheral nerves are located at the outside of the brain and spinal cord, serve the medium of communication between the brain and other organs of the body, including skin, muscles, internal parts and blood vessels.

Spinal Cord Tumor

Early diagnosis is an essential factor in the result of tumours in the spinal cord. Primary spinal cord tumours can originate in the spine rather than spread to the spine from elsewhere in the body.

Stroke

Stroke is the fourth leading cause of brain disorder and also the leading cause of disability. When a stroke happens, a blood vessel in the brain becomes blocked, sometimes causing permanent brain damage or even death. However, expert treatment and follow-up care may protect brain cells and help patients lead healthy, productive lives.

Dural Arteriovenous Fistulae

These are abnormal connections between arteries and veins in the dura, the protective membrane covering the brain and spinal cord.

These abnormal vessels divert blood from the common paths. If the amount of diverted blood flow is large, tissue downstream may not get adequate blood and oxygen supply.


Key Treatments of Neurological Disorders

Cyberknife

It is a modern form of radiology. It is a painless, non-invasive treatment that delivers high doses of precisely targeted radiation to destroy tumours or lesions within the body.

It utilizes a robotic arm to provide highly focused beams of radiation. The flexibility of the robotic arm makes it possible to treat some parts of the body, such as the spine and spinal cord, that can’t be treated by other radiosurgery procedures.

Deep Brain Stimulation

It is an advanced form of brain surgery that was invented to prevent Parkinson’s disease. It has been utilized for patients with dyakinesias, a disorder that forces certain parts of the body into abnormal, sometimes painful, movements or postures.

DBS has also helped patients suffering from essential tremors, tremors associated with multiple sclerosis and those suffering from severe depression.

Gamma Knife

It is modern radiation treatment procedure for young ones and children with small to medium tumours, abnormal blood vessel formations, a nerve condition that encourages chronic pain, and other neurological conditions.
