Treatments for Movement Disorders

Treatments can range from physical therapy to a range of medications and even brain surgery.  The treatment of course, depends on establishing an accurate diagnosis.

We offer medical management, botulinum toxin injection, and surgical therapy. Anyone who is on medication and still suffering from bothersome symptoms of movement disorders is a potential candidate for surgery. This surgery, called deep brain stimulation (DBS) entails placing small wires into the brain, and stimulating them with electrical current supplied by a stimulator device. This safe and effective procedure can give appropriately selected patients increased mobility, use of their hands and independence.
