Make Appointments & Get Care

What are Neurological Disorders?

Neurological disorders result from a problem in the brain or nervous system. They number in the hundreds, from common conditions such as stroke and epilepsy to rare ones such as ataxia.

Hundreds of millions of people experience neurological problems. Causes are just as wide-ranging as the types of conditions, from infection to physical injury.
