Conditions We Treat

What is a neurological condition?

Neurological condition can be simply described as any condition which results from damage to the brain, spinal column or nerves, collectively known as the nervous system. Damage can be caused by illness or injury, but in many cases, exact causes are not yet unknown. There are numerous kinds of neurological conditions, ranging from onset at birth (Cerebral Palsy), early childhood (Duchenne muscular dystrophy), adult (multiple sclerosis), or late adult life (Parkinson's disease). However, conditions caused by sudden injury or illness can affect a person at any age (stroke, head/spinal cord injury, or cancer). Some are hereditary by nature (Huntington's disease). There is also a range of rare conditions (Guillain-Barré syndrome) which are largely unknown to the health and social care professionals (source: The Neurological Alliance).

There are some conditions that may recover with appropriate treatment and therapy (stroke, brain injury), but most neurological conditions are degenerative in nature and will deteriorate over time, although rate and intensity vary depending on the type of condition.

The greatest impact of any neurological condition is how it affects a person's quality of life and their ability to live independently. This affects not just the person with the condition, but also the people who are in their lives. Managing the effects of neurological conditions is a challenge shared by patients, their families, and all the health and social care professionals involved in their care.
