Neurology is the diagnosis and treatment of conditions of or relating to the nervous system (brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, muscles) by a medical specialist. Neurologists complete 4 years of college, 4 years of medical school, and 4 years of internship / residency. Some neurologists also do fellowship work. At Headache and Pain Center of Palm Beach, we treat a variety of neurological and neuromuscular conditions such as:
- carpal tunnel syndrome
- diseases of peripheral nerves and muscles
- pinched nerves
- nerve damage
- nerve root problems due to herniated discs
- Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)/RSD
Muscle spasm, weakness, numbness, tingling, twitching, and pain can be symptoms of a neuromuscular condition.
