Deals with study and treatment of disorders of the nervous system

What is Neurology

Neurology is the branch of medicine concerned with the study and treatment of disorders of the nervous system. The nervous system is a complex, sophisticated system that regulates and coordinates body activities. It has two major divisions:

  • Central nervous system: the brain and spinal cord
  • Peripheral nervous system: all other neural elements, such as eyes, ears, skin, and other "sensory receptors"

Some disorders that affect the brain, spinal cord, and nerves are:

  • Cerebrovascular disease, such as stroke
  • Demyelinating diseases of the central nervous system, such as multiple sclerosis
  • Headache disorders
  • Infections of the brain and peripheral nervous system
  • Movement disorders, such as Parkinson's disease
  • Neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease
  • Seizure disorders, such as epilepsy
  • Spinal cord disorders
  • Speech and language disorders

NErveAide rehabilitation systems are beneficial for most cerebrovascular and demyelinating diseases such as Stroke (CVA), AVM, TBI, Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and CP patients. Depending on location and intensity of spinal cord injury, NErveaide can also help some SCI patients.
