Patients with movement disorders often experience symptoms that can significantly impact their quality of life, including tremors, muscle rigidity, progressively slower physical movement and even loss of physical movement.
At Advocate Christ Medical Center, we understand how important compassionate care is to patients diagnosed with movement disorders. That's why we offer an extensive network of neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuropsychologists, rehabilitation therapists, and social workers to offer a full range of diagnostics, medical therapies and surgical techniques. We work with patients and physicians to coordinate the most appropriate and comprehensive care.
Our physicians help patients resume everyday activities and restore their quality of life using advanced technologies, such as deep brain stimulation, and anti-tremor medications that can further reduce or eliminate their symptoms.
For patients suffering from the painful spasms and stiffness associated with many movement disorders, Christ Medical Center's offers the most up-to-date treatments, from oral medications and Botox therapy to nerve blocks and intrathecal baclofen pumps to orthopedic surgery. Our highly qualified team of physiatrists, neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, occupational therapists and a rehabilitation advanced practice nurse assess each patient to determine the best individual treatment plan.
