Movement Disorder Clinic- Nebraska Medical Clinic
"Movement disorders are neurological conditions that affect the speed, fluency, quality and ease of movement. They may involve excessive or involuntary movements or slowed or loss of voluntary movements. Movement disorders occur as a result of damage or disease in a region located deep in the brain. These clusters of nerve cells send and receive electrical signals and are responsible for movement control. Some of the most common movement disorders include: Parkinson's disease, essential and familial tremor, restless leg syndrome, Huntington's disease, Tourette's syndrome and dystonia. While there is no cure for these diseases, their symptoms can be treated effectively for years with the use of medications or surgery.
