How it works
Neurological tests examine reflexes, muscle power, balance, sensation, coordination and also state of consciousness, speech and orientation via the assessment of:
- the central nervous systems (brain and spinal cord);
- the peripheral nervous system (nerves);
- connections between the nerves and the muscles;
- the muscles themselves.
Where necessary, further exams such as neuropsychological tests and brain scans may be sought, along with the opinion of correlative specialists.
Tailored treatment plans
Once a diagnosis is made, various options are discussed with the patient to decide on the most appropriate course of treatment, tailored to the individual and their unique circumstances.
