DISORDERS WE TREAT
Health Comes First
MIGRAINES AND OTHER HEADACHES
Migraine is a neurological disease with tremendously debilitating neurological symptoms. It’s usually a severe throbbing and recurring pain on one side of the head. In about 1/3 of attacks, both sides of the head are affected. In some cases, other disabling symptoms are present without head pain. Attacks are often accompanied by one or more of the following indications:
Nausea and vomiting
We offer new an innovative treatment for a variety of headache disorders including dietary changes, nerve blocks, oral medications, intranasal medications, injections, and lifestyle changes.
EPILEPSY AND PSEUDOSEIZURES
Quality Care and Testing
Epilepsy is a disorder of the central nervous system wherein brain activity becomes abnormal, causing seizures or periods of unusual behavior, sensations, and sometimes loss of awareness. Anyone can develop epilepsy. Epilepsy affects both males and females of all races, ethnic backgrounds, and ages.
We will also offer CBD oil treatment for select patients with difficult to treat seizures.
We have on site EEG testing done by experienced technologists that makes it more convenient for the patient.
People with insomnia tend to have difficulty falling asleep (onset), staying asleep (maintenance), and/or they wake up too early in the morning. Treatment for insomnia can include behavioral, psychological, medical components or some combination thereof. Let us help you get the sleep you deserve and need.
DEMENTIA AND MEMORY LOSS
Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia. It is a general term for memory loss and other cognitive abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. It accounts for 60 to 80% of dementia cases. Alzheimer's is a progressive disease with symptoms that gradually worsen over a number of years.
Memory loss is mild during the early stages. Individuals with late-stage Alzheimer's lose the ability to carry on a conversation and respond to their environment. Alzheimer's is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. Patients with Alzheimer's live an average of eight years after their symptoms become noticeable to others. Some patients can live 4 to 20 years, depending on age and other health conditions.
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder that affects predominantly dopamine-producing (dopaminergic) neurons in a particular area of the brain called substantia nigra. Symptoms generally develop gradually over the years. The progression of symptoms is often different from one person to another due to the diversity of the disease. People with Parkinson’s disease may experience the following:
At MIND Neurology Clinic, we provide expert care and stay up to date on new treatments for Parkinson's Disease. If you or a family member is suffering from this disease please allow us to help you regain function.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the nervous system that affects your brain and spinal cord. It damages the myelin sheath, a material that surrounds and protects your nerve cells. The damage slows down or blocks messages between your brain and your body, leading to the symptoms. These can include:
We offer innovative treatment options for our patients. This is a debilitating disease and we focus on providing the best care to help improve function.
A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that affects your brain function. Effects are usually momentary but can include headaches and problems with concentration, memory, balance, and coordination. Concussions are usually caused by a blow to the head.
Violently shaking the head and upper body can also result in concussions. Some concussions cause you to lose consciousness, but most do not. It's possible to have this disorder and not realize it. Concussions are particularly common if you play a contact sport, like football. Most people usually recover fully after a concussion.
Concussion treatment requires a comprehensive approach in which we offer at MIND Neurology Clinic.
AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a group of rare neurological diseases that mainly involve the nerve cells or neurons responsible for voluntary muscle movement. Voluntary muscles produce movements like chewing, walking, and talking.
The disease is progressive; the symptoms get worse over time. Currently, there is no cure for ALS and no effective treatment to halt or reverse the progression of the disorder.
Low back pain and neck pain are often caused by spinal degeneration and injury. Back paincthat lasts more than three months (chronic) is less common than acute pain. Back pain often develops without a cause that we can identify with a test or an imaging study. If you are experiencing back pain we can help you get to the cause and manage the pain.
Common back disorders that we treat here include: sciatica, lumbar radiculopathy, cervical radiculopathy, and degenerative disc disease.
We also occipital nerve blocks for patients suffering from headache pain that is not relieved with lifestyle modifications and medications. This procedure is safe and effective.
