Treatment of Movement Disorders

Movement disorders are conditions that tamper with the quality and speed of your movement. They may have resulted from a malfunction or damage in your central nervous system consisting of the spinal cord and the brain. Together with the peripheral nerves, the central nervous system makes it possible to quickly move your hand from hot cookers and even enables you to put a smile on your face whenever your eyes are attracted to nice things.

Types of movement disorders.

The central nervous system has many parts and hence a higher chance of suffering from movement disorders in case a malfunction or damage occurs. There are many types of movement disorders that are as listed below:

  •   Tremors
  •   Tics
  •   Ataxia
  •   Wilson’s disease
  •   Tourette’s syndrome
  •   Restless leg syndrome
  •   Myoclonus
  •   Progressive supranuclear palsy
  •   Huntington’s disease
  •   Parkinson’s disease
  •   Multiple system atrophies

Above all these types, there are two types of movement disorders that are very common, that is, dystonia and spasticity, which are the major movement disorders.

Dystonia.

This is a type of disorder that affects muscles and is caused by a collapse of the basal ganglia that control the coordination of movements.  In case the basal ganglia are damaged or crushed, it may lead to this disorder. They cause abnormal postures and even bring along twisting and contraction of muscles. Dystonia is not deadly, although it affects one’s quality of life.

Spasticity.

This disorder makes muscles rigid or rather stiff, making movement difficult due to the increase of abnormal contraction of muscles. The spinal cord and the brain have the responsibility to control voluntary movement, and hence their damage leads to spasticity. Spasticity can cause a reduction in range of motion or frozen joints. Most spasticity cases have been caused by cerebral palsy.
