Neurology

The neurologist is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the nervous system - the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves, and certain muscle disorders and pain problems, especially headache. Many neurologic disorders require long-term care, and some are untreatable. There are close ties between the specialties of neurology and psychiatry - board certification is offered by a combined board of psychiatry and neurology - and practitioners often consult with each other on patient care.
