Neurology is a medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of disorders affecting the nervous system. This complex and vital system comprises the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and muscles. Neurologists are medical doctors who specialize in neurology and are trained to evaluate, diagnose, and provide care for a wide range of neurological conditions.

These conditions may include neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, stroke, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, headaches, neuropathies, and various movement disorders. Neurologists employ a variety of diagnostic techniques, such as imaging studies like MRI and CT scans, electroencephalography (EEG), and clinical assessments to understand the underlying causes of neurological symptoms. Treatment approaches often involve medication, physical therapy, and in some cases, surgical interventions. Neurology plays a critical role in enhancing the quality of life for individuals with neurological disorders by offering interventions to manage symptoms and improve overall neurological health.
