What is a Neurological Disease?
Individuals suffering from MS, ALS, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease know these diseases can be grossly life changing. Trouble moving, swallowing, remembering, learning, and even breathing is just a small number of ways neurological diseases can impact a person.
How we treat neurological disease
At Sierra Integrative Medical Center, we conduct a thorough examination of a patient’s history, as well as testing, to determine the exact treatment plan for their illness.
Our first priority is to determine if there is an underlying cause to a patient’s neurological symptoms. We conduct detailed research into the medical history of each patient in order to develop a complete understanding of each case. The information we gather allows us to pursue a course of care that may lead to a partial or a full recovery.
We implement integrative medicine to help treat a patient’s mind and body. The physicians and neurologist of our Reno holistic health center use the best elements of traditional medicine, alternative medical treatment options, neurotherapy, and homeopathy to create a unique treatment program for each patient.
Types of Neurological Diseases That We Treat
