Neurological disorders and related conditions can interfere with daily life. Some can even be progressive and potentially disabling. No matter what neurological symptoms you're experiencing, we can help.
We offer outpatient neurology services at Searcy Medical Center. We also treat neurological disorders in our long-term acute care facility at the Advanced Care Hospital of White County.
Our outpatient neurology clinic
Our highly qualified neurology team evaluates and treats a broad spectrum of conditions at our outpatient clinic at Searcy Medical Center, including virtually any issue that affects the brain, spinal cord and nervous system.
A few of the conditions the outpatient neurology clinic can help with are:
- Migraine headaches
- Parkinson's disease
- Multiple sclerosis
- Alzheimer's disease
- Peripheral neuropathy (nerve damage that affects the legs or arms)
Experts at solving neurological problems
Many patients see our neurology team at our outpatient neurology clinic for initial consultations and testing. They may have been referred by a primary care provider or they may be experiencing worrisome symptoms they want examined. Our team can find and treat the problem.
Treatment starts with a medical history, plus a physical and neurological exam. In some cases, certain diagnostic tests may be needed as well.
We offer many tests in our hospital. Some advanced diagnostic tests are available in the outpatient neurology clinic itself, including:
- Electroencephalogram (EEG). This test can help diagnose problems such as seizures and other brain disorders.
- Electromyography (EMG), which is often performed along with a nerve conduction test. EMG is used to help detect nerve, muscle and spinal cord problems. It can reveal problems such as neuropathy (nerve damage).
Ongoing care for your neurological condition
Neurological disorders can't always be cured. But most can be managed. Depending on your condition, our specialists may prescribe medicines or other treatments. Drug therapies may ease symptoms or, in some cases, help slow the progression of a disorder.
We also offer the latest drug therapies for migraine headaches, including botox injections. Physical, occupational and speech therapies are also available.
And for many people, lifestyle changes may also have a positive effect on daily living. We can recommend changes that help.
