Treating Movement Disorders
Movement disorders can be frustrating and stressful. Our multispecialty team works together to tailor treatment plans to your unique symptoms and needs. Our goal is to improve your quality of life through therapy, exercise, and medications.
Ongoing, multidisciplinary treatment is crucial to controlling symptoms. We ensure you receive the best possible care by using a variety of approaches, which may include:
- Oral medications
- Botulinum toxin injections for dystonia and spasticity
- Physical therapy to retain and improve function
- Occupational therapy to teach adaptive living skills
- Practical and emotional support for you and your family
- Psychological and psychiatric counseling and evaluation
- Referrals to other medical disciplines as needed, including referrals for deep brain stimulation surgery
- New medications available through clinical trials
Because movement disorders have a profound impact on your daily functioning and quality of life, each treatment plan considers the emotional toll of the disorder.
Our neuropsychologists provide treatment for associated anxiety, depression, and mood disorders. Our dedicated staff of specialists—including an experienced social worker—discusses many facets of care with you and your family, acknowledging the significant impact a movement disorder has on your daily life.
The specialists at Kettering Health Network work as a collaborative team to offer you the best possible outcomes, safety, and service.
