Hillsborough Private Clinic’s Consultant Neurologists diagnose and manage diseases that affect you brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves, which together make up your nervous system.
What Does the Nervous System Do?
Nervous system transmits signals through your body using your neurons. If your body were a house, your nervous system would be the electrical wiring. The nervous system is split into two main parts – the voluntary (or somatic) part and the involuntary (or autonomic) part.
The voluntary part connects the brain and your spinal cord with your muscles and the senses in your skin, passing information back and forth. The involuntary system governs processes such as your breathing and your blood pressure.
These two parts are both very important, and when something goes wrong, the diseases that result can be debilitating. Typically, diseases of the nervous system create chronic pain and/or functional difficulties and are often managed rather than treated.
If you have concerns about a particular neurological disease (for example, having a family history), book a consultation to speak with one of our Consultant Neurologists. Your neurologist will perform tests where appropriate and, once a diagnosis has been reached, will discuss your results with you and suggest the best course of treatment. Neurological disorders are complex and often intimidating, so your consultant will give you ample time to ask questions.
