Advanced Care For Movement Disorders
Dyskinesia refers to a category of movement disorders characterized by involuntary muscle movements; Parkinson’s disease may be the most well-known. But any neurological condition that affects ease, fluency, quality and/or speed of movement is a movement disorder. These can be treated with a combination of therapies including oral medication, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, neuropsychological evaluations, botulinum toxin injection therapy (Botox®), deep brain stimulation (DBS) or other types of surgery.
At USA Health, we treat patients with movement disorders by helping them manage their symptoms and, when possible, addressing the underlying root cause of the disorder. As an academic medical center, we develop and deliver the most effective care to our movement disorder patients. For that reason, we also offer clinical trials involving new treatments to patients when appropriate.
