Neuromuscular Conditions are diseases of nerve and muscle, such as pinched nerve, neuropathy, nerve damage, carpal tunnel syndrome, myopathy, and myasthenia. Muscle spasm, weakness, numbness, tingling, twitching, and pain can be symptoms of a neuromuscular condition.

Dystonia is an involuntary sustained muscle contracion that can cause neck spasm and pain.  Dystonia can be treated with medications or with botulinum toxin (Botox r).

EMG and Nerve Conduction Studies are tests of the nerves and muscles.  They can help in diagnosing pinched nerves, numbness, tingling, weakness, paralysis, limb pain, back pain, herniated discs, muscle spasm, and nerve and muscle junction diseases.

Head Injury can manifest as headaches, post-concussion syndrome, or traumatic brain injury.  TBI is sometimes under-recognized or overshadowed by other injuries.  It is important to be evaluated by a neurologist or other qualified specialist.
Neurology is the diagnosis and treatment of neurological (brain, spinal cord, nerve, and muscle)conditions by a medical specialist.

Neurologists complete 4 years of college, 4 years of medical school, and 4 years of internship / residency.  Some neurologists also do fellowship work.
