Typical neurological diseases we treat in our practice.
Headaches are widespread. They usually get better on their own, but they can also be the precursor of a serious illness. Through structured questioning and, if necessary, additional examinations, we classify your headache syndrome and, together with you, find the optimal treatment strategy.
Back pain is one of the most common forms of pain. It is favoured by frequent sitting, little movement and age processes. A neurological assessment is necessary when the pain radiates and there are also sensory disturbances, paralysis or disturbances in bladder function.
Mechanical or toxic damage to nerve fibres can lead to nerve pain and loss. There are many causes, the best known being carpal tunnel syndrome and diabetic polyneuropathy. An individual therapy concept is necessary for each of these diseases.
Up to 1% of the population suffers from epileptic seizures. They occur suddenly, can manifest themselves in many ways and should be distinguished from non-epileptic seizures. In addition to seizure control, an essential goal of treatment is an improvement in the quality of life for the affected patients.
Many older people suffer from impaired memory and mental function, which eventually leads to restrictions in everyday life. Dementia poses great challenges for everyone involved. After a diagnosis, we therefore accompany the patients and their relatives and adapt the treatment to the disease course.
The disease is most noticeable through slowing down of movement, stiffness, tremor and unsteady posture. It progresses slowly, which is why long-term neurological monitoring is advisable. Especially at the beginning, the symptoms can be alleviated by treatment with specific medications.
Dizziness and vertigo
Dizziness and vertigo are accompanied by disturbance of balance, nausea and unsteadiness of gait. The often sudden onset frightens many people. In most cases, the symptoms go away on its own. Nevertheless, it makes sense to see a doctor in order to exclude rare serious causes, e.g. a circulation disorder of the brain.
Up to 10 out of 100 people suffer from "restless" legs, also known as "restless legs syndrome". The main symptom is sensory discomfort and pain of feet and legs, which is relieved by movement. Patients often have trouble sleeping and are constantly tired. Good news: the disease is treatable - we will advise you on the right therapy.
This inflammatory, often relapsing disease of the central nervous system usually begins in early adulthood. It can cause numerous complaints, which limit those affected in their everyday lives. With the help of drug-based and non-drug procedures, it is often possible to achieve a major symptom reduction, especially in the early stages.
Strokes are caused by sudden circulation disorders in the brain and lead to suddenly occuring deficits such as paralysis, dizziness, speech disorders or visual disturbances. A stroke is an EMERGENCY: ALWAYS dial 112 if you experience symptoms that could be representing a stroke! Our work focuses on aftercare and risk assessment.
We speak of neurological functional disorders when symptoms such as dizziness, seizures or paralysis occur, but no specific cause can be found. Those affected are often not taken seriously and left alone with their suffering. Functional complaints are treatable - we show you how.
The field of neurology includes numerous other clinical pictures that can affect the brain, the spinal cord, the peripheral nerves and the muscles. As a neurological practice, we are the first contact for such complaints. Talk to us if you have the feeling that something is wrong with your nerves!
