Parkinson’s Disease | Essential Tremor | Dystonia

Movement disorders are neurological conditions that affect the speed, fluency, quality, and ease of movement. Abnormal fluency or speed of movement (dyskinesia) may involve excessive or involuntary movement (hyperkinesia) or slowed or absent voluntary movement (hypokinesia).

Movement disorders include the following conditions:

  • Ataxia (lack of coordination, often producing jerky movements)
  • Dystonia (causes involuntary movement and prolonged muscle contraction)
  • Huntington’s disease (also called chronic progressive chorea)
  • Multiple system atrophies (e.g., Shy-Drager syndrome)
  • Myoclonus (rapid, brief, irregular movement)
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Progressive supranuclear palsy (rare disorder that affects purposeful movement)
  • Restless legs syndrome (RLS) and reflex sympathetic dystrophy/periodic limb movement disorder (RSD/PLMD)
  • Tics (involuntary muscle contractions)
  • Tourette’s syndrome
  • Tremor (e.g., essential tremor, resting tremor)
  • Wilson disease (inherited disorder that causes neurological and psychiatric symptoms and liver disease)

However we only treat patients with Parkinson’s, Essential Tremor and Dystonia.
