Neurological Assessment

Basically, this is an evaluation of your nervous system, which will look at mental status (in relation to awareness of the environment), reflexes, and functioning of the nerves.

 

Assessment of motor and sensory skills, balance and coordination will also be tested at this time.

Again, treatment and procedures would be determined by the initial examination and consultation.


Reasons for conducting a neurological assessment might be to address:
 

  • Headaches

  • Blurry vision

  • Change in behaviour

  • Fatigue

  • Change in balance or coordination

  • Numbness or tingling in the arms or legs

  • A decrease in movement of the arms or legs

  • Injury to the head, neck, or back

  • Fever

  • Seizures

  • Slurred speech

  • Weakness

  • Tremor
     

As with all areas of Medicine, early intervention will have a more positive outcome on recovery.
