Neurology

What is neurology?

Neurology is a medical specialty that focuses on your nervous system. The two main parts of your nervous system are the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and the peripheral nervous system (nerves outside the brain and spinal cord).

Why would I need to see a neurologist?

Neurologists diagnose and treat medical problems that affect your brain, spinal cord, and nerves. Signs and symptoms that indicate you might need to see a neurologist include:

  • Muscle weakness or lack of coordination
  • Confusion or difficulty thinking
  • Changes in sensation, such as numbness or tingling

Neurological disorders can also affect your senses, such as vision and touch. The highly trained team of neurologists at Jacinto Medical Group thoroughly evaluates your symptoms and medical history to determine the root cause of these changes.

What conditions does a neurologist treat?

The team at Jacinto Medical Group neurology department diagnoses and treats a broad range of medical conditions related to the nervous system. Common conditions they manage include:

  • Stroke
  • Headaches
  • Dementias
  • Epilepsy (seizures)
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s disease

They also diagnose and treat various forms of pain that are caused by problems with the nervous system, such as neuropathy (nerve damage).

What should I expect when I visit a neurologist?

First, your expert neurologist at Jacinto Medical Group performs a comprehensive neurological exam. This can include an assessment of your muscle strength, reflexes, and sensory function.

Depending on what they observe during your exam, your neurologist could order additional tests and procedures. The team at Jacinto Medical Group offers expertise in the following neurological tests and procedures:

  • Cognitive testing
  • Electroencephalogram (EEG)
  • Video EEG
  • Electromyogram (EMG)
  • Nerve conduction velocity study (NCV)
  • Electronystagmography (VENG)
  • Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS)
  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)
  • Botox® injections for medical conditions, such as headaches
  • Trigger point injections for pain

Most neurological disorders are difficult to diagnose and often require multiple tests. The neurology team at Jacinto Medical Group works closely with you and your primary care physician to make sure you receive the best possible treatment.
