Cayman Neurology And Pain Management, based in the Cayman Islands, is sharing more details regarding the conditions that can be treated at the clinic. Offering the community a team of specialists, the clinic utilizes both their expertise and state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic tools to ensure patients have the best possible outcomes.
As the clinic’s name suggests, it primarily deals with conditions that involve the nervous system. This extends to the brain, nerves, muscles and so on. Pain can also occur virtually anywhere in the body, and managing it can be at least partially a neurological issue. As such, the clinic strives to help patients regain their ability to live a complete and happy life, especially if their pain is chronic in nature. Those interested may call the Cayman Neurology And Pain Management office directly or use the clinic’s website to schedule a consultation.
Among the most common problems treated at Cayman Neurology And Pain Management are migraines and other types of headaches. An individual who has suffered a migraine at any point in their lives will attest that it can be a debilitating experience, essentially reducing every perception of the world around them to a pain-filled daze. The clinic shares that migraines are known to be three times more prevalent in women than men, occurring periodically and often making the patient more sensitive to light and sound.
Patients may also experience what are known as tension headaches, cluster headaches and so on. Whatever the issue may be, Cayman Neurology And Pain Management’s doctors begin by performing a full assessment of the patient and their medical history. A range of tests may be ordered at this point as well. Treatment will be specific to each patient and their individual diagnosis, but doctors will attempt the least invasive solutions first. This may include helping the patient identify lifestyle changes (to avoid triggers), prescribing medication and so on.
Another common issue among patients is muscle weakness — which the clinic says is one of the top reasons patients decide to visit their doctor. In many cases, what a patient believes is muscle weakness may actually be the symptom of a different condition, such as injury, fatigue and so on. However, muscle weakness can itself present in a single area of the body or affect several muscles simultaneously, and patients have reported feeling it either emerge suddenly or gradually affect their bodies more over time.
What a patient describes as ‘muscle weakness’ can have a host of causes, so the clinic’s first order of business is often to determine the true root of the matter. The clinic will investigate a variety of possibilities during an examination, including heart disease, diabetes, anemia, anxiety, neurological conditions and so on. Again, treatment will be offered based on the patient’s individual needs.
Patients may also present with a somewhat similar condition: tremors and shaking. These are defined as involuntary movements that occur in one area of the body. Mild tremors can be alarming, but severe conditions can make the affected area a great hindrance to a patient’s life, especially since they occur in the arms, legs and head. They are also known to occur at any age, and they affect men and women alike with equal frequency.
According to the clinic, this can be one of the more puzzling conditions to treat if there is no underlying genetic condition (such as Parkinson’s disease). Tremors can be caused by a variety of issues, such as a stroke, brain injury, Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and other neurological sources. The clinic adds that tremors can be caused by other medical conditions, as well, including excessive alcohol or recreational drug consumption, liver failure, thyroid issues and more.
If a patient is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, certain medications are available that can help mitigate its effects. Other causes may require a combination of physical therapy and medication to help patients manage their tremors.
Whatever the case may be, Cayman Neurology And Pain Management assures patients that the team will do everything in their power to both diagnose and treat their condition. Those who require the assistance of a neurologist in the Cayman Islands are welcome to get in touch with the clinic today to schedule their next consultation or follow up on any further inquiries.
