Neurological disorders are conditions involving the nervous system. A
neurological disorder is a disease or injury of the central nervous
system that causes paralysis of any part of the body. Sometimes
physical injury to the brain, spinal cord, or nerves can be the cause
of neurological disorders. Sometimes they can result from biochemical
causes. Other times, the cause may be unkown and only the effects are
seen. Neurological disorders can be a sign that there is an imbalance
in your system. When you have an imbalance, you are also susceptible to
various diseases which can settle in weak areas of your body.
Neurological disorders are a group of disorders that involve the
central nervous system (brain, brainstem and cerebellum), the
peripheral nervous system (including cranial nerves), and the autonomic
nervous system (parts of which are located in both central and
peripheral nervous system). Major branches are headache, stupor and
coma, dementia, seizure, sleep disorders, trauma, infections,
neoplasms, neuroophthalmology, movement disorders, demyelinating
diseases, spinal cord disorders, and disorders of peripheral nerves,
muscle and neuromuscular junctions. Neurological disabilities are
associated with damage to the nervous system (including the brain and
spinal cord) that results in the loss of some bodily or mental
functions. Acquired Brain Injury (ABI), and Epilepsy are two of the
most prevalent neurological disabilities. Heart attacks, infections,
genetic disorders, and lack of oxygen to the brain may also result in a
Neurological disorders are quite diverse, chronic, challenging to
treat, and often disabling. They can be caused by many different
factors, including (but not limited to): inherited genetic
abnormalities, problems in the immune system, injury to the brain or
nervous system, or diabetes. Many mental illnesses are believed to be
neurological disorders of the central nervous system, but they are
classified separately. They are not traditionally listed as
neurological diseases because their causes are not definitely
determined as biological, although there are good reasons to suspect
that bipolar disorder and schizophrenia have neuro-chemical causes. The
human central nervous system consists of the brain and spinal cord.
These lie in the midline of the body and are associated with the skull
and vertebrae respectively. The central nervous system along with the
peripheral nervous system comprise a primary division of controls that
command all physical activities of a vertebrate. Neurons of the central
nervous system affect consciousness and mental activity while spinal
extensions of central nervous system neuron pathways affect skeletal
muscles and organs in the body.
Major neurological conditions and diseases
Multiple sclerosis - Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a demyelinating
disease, a non-contagious chronic autoimmune disorder of the central
nervous system which can present with a variety of neurological
symptoms occurring in attacks or slowly progressing over time. It has
no cure yet and the exact cause remains unknown. Due to its effects of
the nervous system, it can lead to long-term impaired mobility and
disability in severe cases. Multiple sclerosis slowly progressive
autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system attacks the
protective myelin sheaths that surround the nerve cells of the brain
and spinal cord (a process called demyelination), resulting in damaged
areas that are unable to transmit nerve impulses.
Cerebral palsy - Cerebral palsy or CP is a group of disorders
associated with developmental brain injuries that occur during fetal
development, birth, or shortly after birth. It is characterized by a
disruption of motor skills, with symptoms such as spasticity,
paralysis, or seizures. Cerebral palsy is also known as static
encephalopathy and Little's disease (which is strictly speaking only
the "spastic diplegia" form of CP). It is no longer considered a
disease, but rather it is a chronic nonprogressive neurological
disorder. The incidence is about 1.5 to 4 per 1000 live births. There
is no cure, but therapy may be helpful. It has one of the highest
lifetime costs of any birth defect.
Headaches - A headache is a condition of mild to severe pain in the
head; sometimes upper back or neck pain may also be interpreted as a
headache. Most headaches are due to tension, migraine, or a combination
of the two. Serious underlying causes of headaches, like a tumor or a
stroke, are extremely rare, despite the fact that many people worry
about these possibilities. Migraine headache is a primary headache
disorder with, almost certainly, a genetic basis. Activation of a
mechanism deep in the brain causes release of pain-producing
inflammatory substances around the nerves and blood vessels of the
Alzheimer's disease - Alzheimer's disease (AD) is an irreversible,
progressive disorder in which brain cells (neurons) deteriorate,
resulting in the loss of cognitive functions, primarily memory,
judgment and reasoning, movement coordination, and pattern recognition.
In advanced stages of the disease, all memory and mental functioning
may be lost. A person with Alzheimer's disease usually has a gradual
decline in mental functions, often beginning with slight memory loss,
followed by losses in the ability to maintain employment, to plan and
execute familiar tasks, and to reason and exercise judgment. The
ultimate cause or causes of Alzheimer's disease are still unknown,
there are several risk factors that increase a person's likelihood of
developing the disease.
Chronic fatigue syndrome - Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is an illness
characterized by prolonged, debilitating fatigue and multiple
nonspecific symptoms such as headaches, recurrent sore throats, muscle
and joint pains, memory and concentration difficulties. Profound
fatigue, the hallmark of the disorder, can come on suddenly or
gradually and persists or recurs throughout the period of illness.
Unlike the short-term disability of say, the flu, chronic fatigue
syndrome symptoms linger for at least six months and often for years.
The cause of chronic fatigue syndrome remains unknown.
Parkinson's disease - Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative
disease of the substantia nigra (an area in the basal ganglia).
Parkinson's disease involves a breakdown of the nerve cells in the
motor area of the brain. As the cells break down, there is a shortage
of dopamine. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter, or chemical that carries
messages to the body. When there is a shortage of dopamine, the
messages that regulate movement aren't sent properly. Parkinson's
disease happens when nerve cells (neurons) in a part of the brain
called the substantia nigra gradually die. These cells normally produce
dopamine, a chemical that helps to relay messages between areas of the
brain that control body movement.
Carpal tunnel syndrome - Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when tendons in
the wrist become inflamed after being aggravated. Tendons can become
aggravated when the carpals (a tunnel of bones) and the ligaments in
the wrist narrow, pinching nerves that reach the fingers and the muscle
at the base of the thumb. Repetitive flexing and extension of the wrist
may cause a thickening of the protective sheaths that surround each of
the tendons, which narrows the tunnel. Women are three times more
likely to develop CTS than men, and the risk increases with age. People
between the ages of 40 and 60 are more commonly affected.
Neuropathy - Neuropathy is the disease of the nervous system.
Neuropathy is a disturbance in the function of a nerve or particular
group of nerves. Many people who have had diabetes for a while have
nerve damage. The three major forms of nerve damage are: peripheral
neuropathy, autonomic neuropathy, and mononeuropathy. The most common
form is peripheral neuropathy, which mainly affects the feet and legs.
Neuropathy can lead to disability, amputation, decreased ambulation as
well as foot and leg ulceration because of loss or damage to nerves
which feel sensation in the lower limbs.
