  • Description
  • Details

This book will help neurologists and other clinicians in the recognition and treatment of this important group of disorders.

Movement disorders are a group of neurological conditions that are characterised by problems with movement - either unwanted movements, such as tremors, jerks or twitches, or slowness and poverty of movement. Parkinson's disease is the most common of these conditions, and it affects approximately 1% of the population. Its treatment is complex, but effective, and there have been many recent exciting developments in the field. Other movement disorders are less common and extremely diverse, so it is difficult for practitioners to become proficient in diagnosing and treating them all. Written in a concise, easy-to-use handbook format, it should appeal to a multidisciplinary audience.
