Understanding Movement Disorders


Movement disorders encompass a spectrum of conditions that affect how a person moves. These conditions can manifest as either an increase in movements (hyperkinetic) or a reduction in voluntary and involuntary movements (hypokinetic).

Movement disorders or motor tics in children can result from various factors, including pathological changes in the basal ganglia, hereditary factors and environmental influences. They can have a significant impact on a child’s quality of life, and early diagnosis and intervention are crucial.

At Kids Neuro Clinic, we specialize in diagnosing and treating movement disorders in children. If you suspect your child may be experiencing motor tics, Tourette Syndrome, or other movement-related issues, read on to learn more.

Diagnosis at Kids Neuro Clinic

Our diagnostic process starts with a comprehensive medical history, addressing your child’s symptoms, triggers, duration, frequency and family history. We assess vital signs, and conduct a thorough physical examination focusing on movement disturbances, balance, muscle stiffness and speech.

Additional tests, such as laboratory tests, Electromyography (EMG), Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS), and brain imaging, may be recommended to rule out symptomatic causes.

Treatment Options

At Kids Neuro Clinic, we offer a range of treatment options tailored to your child’s specific condition. Our treatments may include medications, botulinum toxin injections, physical and occupational therapy and surgical procedures like deep brain stimulation.
