Movement disorders have become a defined sub-specialty of neurology. Movement disorders include Parkinson’s disease and other forms of parkinsonism, essential tremor and other tremor disorders, restless legs syndrome, Tourette syndrome, tics, dystonia, Huntington’s disease, tardive disorders and other hyperkinetic disorders.
The differential diagnosis and treatment of the various movement disorders can be a challenge. In addition to controlling motor symptoms, it is important to recognize and treat the non-motor and psychiatric aspects of these disorders.
The Movement Disorder Review Course series has been ongoing for over 25 years and is designed for physicians in practice and training, as well as other health care professionals, caring for persons with movement disorders.. The course will review the diagnosis and treatment of motor and non-motor symptoms of movement disorders, including the use of pharmacological interventions, botulinum toxin injections and deep brain stimulation.
