"Neurological disorders affect the brain, the spine and the nerves that connect them and can lead to loss of movement and function and create an inability to perform certain activities. When something goes wrong with a part of your nervous system, you can have trouble moving, speaking, swallowing, breathing, or learning. You can also have problems with your memory, senses, or mood.There are many causes for neurological disorders from injury to illness to disease, though the most common include Parkinson"s disease, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Alzheimer"s disease, and Huntington"s disease. Other common causes are stroke, brain aneurysm, brain or spinal cord tumor and peripheral neuropathy.Neurological disorder therapy aides in assessing, maintaining and recovering function in patients with progressive neurological disorders and following neurological trauma. Therapy can often improve function, reduce symptoms, foster increased independence and improve patient well-being."
