Parkinson's and Movement Disorders Program

Movement disorders are neurological conditions — disorders of the nerves and the nervous system. These chronic conditions affect a person’s ability to control the way his or her body moves. Symptoms vary widely from person to person and from day to day.

In general, movement disorders are caused by changes to regions of the brain that control movement. The cause of these changes is often unknown. The two basic types of movement disorders are:

  • Hypokinetic disorders (too little movement / slowness of movement)
  • Hyperkinetic disorders (too much movement / excess, unwanted movement)

All Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders Neurologists, Drs. Blindauer, Eichenseer and Hiner have special training in movement disorders. They work together to coordinate patient care, using the latest proven therapies to enhance patients’ quality of life. Treatments range from medication to physical, occupational therapy and speech therapy, which includes the Lee Silverman Voice Treatment® to restore speech and Botulinum toxin to control muscle spasms. The program also offers deep brain stimulation (DBS), the only surgical treatment for movement disorders in the area.
