What are neurological symptoms?

Neurological symptoms can be quite concerning, whether you experience them yourself or notice them in a loved one.

Examples of neurological symptoms include:

  • Forgetfulness
  • Partial or complete paralysis
  • Muscle weakness
  • Poor coordination
  • Loss of sensation
  • Seizures
  • Confusion
  • Pain
  • Difficulty reading and writing
  • Decreased alertness

Emotional symptoms can also signal a neurological problem. These can include mood swings, sudden outbursts, depression, and delusions.

Usually, neurological symptoms suggest a disease or injury to the brain or nervous system.  Millions of people worldwide suffer from neurological disorders that cause these symptoms.

What causes neurological symptoms?

Neurological symptoms can be caused by genetic disorders, infections, lifestyle, environmental exposure, spinal cord injury, nerve injury, and brain injury or aging changes.

Common neurological disorders include:

  • Alzheimer’s disease (AD)
  • Epilepsy
  • Dementia
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Migraines

More than 600 neurological disorders exist.

When should I seek treatment for neurological symptoms?

If you or a loved one displays neurological symptoms, it’s a good idea to make an appointment with Dr. Stumpf.

He can complete different exams to diagnose a possible neurological condition. With accurate diagnosis, he can offer the best available treatment to ease the symptoms and improve quality of life.

Make an appointment if you or a loved one regularly experience:

  • Headaches or migraines
  • Blurry vision
  • Numbness in the legs or arms
  • Changes in coordination or balance
  • Weakness
  • Slurred speech
  • Behavior changes
  • Tremors

Treatment of neurological symptoms includes gentle osteopathic manipulations to help restore blood flow to your spinal column and brain, which can relieve pressure on nerves and ease symptoms.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy promotes healing from neurological symptoms by flooding the brain and other bodily tissues with oxygen. This helps the brain repair itself and enhances mitochondrial function without massive doses of pharmaceuticals. The mitochondria are the powerhouses of your cells that provide them with energy to do things such as healing and repairing.

Light therapy promotes a reduction in inflammation and has neuroprotective effects, preventing the further degradation of nerve and brain cells and neurons. Light therapy has also been shown to reduce migraine instances and improve vitality.
