Neurological Disorders

Neurological Disorders are diseases of the brain, spine, and the nerves that connect them in the central and peripheral nervous system. There are over 600 of these neurological diseases. Hundreds of millions are affected by neurological disorders around the world.

 

A partial list of symptoms for neurological disorders include:

  • foggy thinking
  • feeling slowed down
  • unable to complete a task
  • difficulties with following through
  • reduced motivation
  • lack of energy
  • irritability
  • feeling like 'not the same person as before'

Known neurological conditions, such as multiple sclerosis or traumatic brain injury, can result in a multitude of cognitive and emotional symptoms. This can be further amplified by given stressors such as job or school disruption and problems with family members. A neuropsychological evaluation can help identify these difficulties and develop appropriate recommendations.

 

Patients can effectively compensate for changes in thinking by using organizational and memory strategies. Implementing these strategies in a work or school setting is essential for functional improvement. Additionally, the patient's expectations need to be commensurate with current functioning. If the person is experiencing persistent changes and is constantly wanting to just 'be who he/she used to be,' these issues need to be addressed so the patient can move forward and develop new goals that are essential to self-worth and life satisfaction. Thomson Memory Center also offers a Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy Program that can provide the patient with such comprehensive therapy.
