Movement disorders – an overview
Every movement in the body involves a link amid the central nervous system, i.e. brain and spinal cord, nerves as well as muscles. Malfunction or any kind of damage to any of these above-listed components may lead to Movement disorders. It is a neurological condition that causes abnormal movements. Movement disorders can be classified as per their location, nature and malfunction. Below are some types of Movement disorders:
- Damage of parts of the brain that are connected and control voluntary movement.
- Damage to the collection of nerve cells which are located at the base of the cerebrum
- Damage to cerebellum
There are many Movement disorders like hiccups that are temporary and are not severe. But some are so severe and progressive like Parkinson disease in which patients experience problems in using hands, speaking ability, and maintaining balance. Movement disorders are classified as decreased and increased movement by the neurosurgeons. Example of slow movement disorder is Parkinson disease, and example of increased movement disorder includes tremor, dystonia, myoclonus, chorea, tics and coordination disorders.
