Know your nervous system code words.
Neurological conditions are concerned with diseases, injuries, and disorders of the brain, nerves, and spinal cord.
There are many nervous system disorders that require clinical care by a physician or other healthcare professional.
A complete and thorough evaluation of a person's nervous system is important if there is any reason to think there may be an underlying problem.
Neurological rehabilitation can often improve function, reduce symptoms, and improve the well-being of the patient.
Neurological surgery, also called neurosurgery, is the branch of medicine that provides both operative and nonoperative management of disorders that affect the central and peripheral nervous systems.
