What is a neurologist?

What is a neurologist?

A neurologist is a medical doctor specializing in diagnosing, treating, and managing disorders of the brain and nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. Their expertise lies in understanding the anatomy, function, and conditions that can affect the nerves and the entire nervous system. The nervous system serves as your body's command center, controlling all your thoughts, emotions, and actions, from simple movements like raising your arm to vital functions like beating your heart.

What methods do neurologists use to diagnose conditions?

Neurologists employ a diagnostic process that gathers information about your medical history, family history, medication usage, and current symptoms. Additionally, they conduct a comprehensive neurologic examination, which includes assessing your coordination, balance, reflexes, and gait and evaluating muscle strength, mental health, vision, hearing, speech, and sensation.

Your neurologist may order blood, urine, or other fluid tests to gain further insights into the condition's severity or medication effectiveness. They might also consider genetic testing to identify any inherited disorders. In some cases, imaging studies of your nervous system will be recommended to aid in the diagnosis.

Once a diagnosis is established, neurologists proceed with treatment, which may involve medications, physical therapy, or other appropriate approaches to address your condition.
