Neurology Experts in South Carolina
Neurological disorders, or diseases of the brain, spine, and the nerves that connect them, affect millions of people each year.
Many people don’t even know they have a neurological disorder. Understanding symptoms of neurological disorders is important, as it can lead you to seek medical attention, which can result in proper diagnosis and effective treatment. The highly-trained Neurologists at Carolina Orthopaedic & Neurosurgical Associates have the highest level of knowledge and mastery of the latest techniques and technologies in the neurology practice.
What is a Neurologist?
A neurologist is a doctor who focuses on diseases and conditions that affect your brain, spinal cord, and nerves. Your neurologist here at CONA will examine you, order tests, make a diagnosis, treat your condition with medicine or physical therapy, or send you to another specialist at our practice, like a neurosurgeon, and work with them, if necessary.
Common Conditions Treated:
As a Neurology practice, CONA’s most important tool is a thorough exam of the nerves. It can help figure out what is causing common complaints and where they are coming from. Here are six reasons why someone should see a neurologist:
Chronic or severe headaches
If you have migraine headaches, you should probably see a neurologist, especially if the symptoms are linked to problems with your nervous system or if the treatments you’ve tried haven’t helped
If you have vertigo, the feeling that the room is spinning, or can’t keep your balance, it could be a sign of something more serious
Having trouble walking, shuffling your feet, tremors, and sudden jerks can all be signs of an issue with your nervous system
If you have constant pain and your primary care doctor can’t help you manage it, you might want to see a neurologist because the pain could be caused by an underlying issue
Numbness or tingling
If you feel numb or tingly on one side of your body or all of a sudden, it could be a sign of a stroke or something else serious
Memory problems or confusion
Alzheimer’s disease could be present if a person’s memory problems get worse, their personality changes or they mix up words. Other neurological conditions may also cause difficulties with memory
Common Neurological Conditions
Acute Spinal Cord Injury
Epilepsy and Seizures
Lumbar Disk Disease
AKA Herniated Disk
