A local neurologist is a medical professional who is educated and trained in diseases of the brain and spinal cord, as well as the peripheral nerves and muscles. Some examples of neurological conditions a local neurologist may treat include stroke, epilepsy and Parkinson's disease. Your local family physician may refer you to a local neurologist if they suspect you have a brain or spinal cord condition. If you’re recovering from a neurological condition, you may benefit from working with a local physiotherapist. A local physiotherapist uses a wide range of techniques such as manual therapy, spinal adjustment and rehabilitative ultrasound to treat patients of all ages.
