Neurological problems can heavily affect an individual’s memory and his/her ability to perform normal, daily chores. The clinical specialty of Neurology focuses on to treat conditions related to brain and nervous system. The nervous system includes the brain (Cerebrum, Cerebellum and Brainstem), spinal cord, nerves, nerve – muscle junction, and muscles.
Our nervous system plays a crucial role in controlling bodily functions, movements and coordination, and brain happens to be the epicenter to be in charge of everything that we think, perceive, feel, behave, and remember.
Diseases of the nervous system are common, and all diseases of the nervous system have available treatment. Neurology takes the scientific approach to treat and manage the conditions, and keep us attached to our normal flow of life.
