Treatment

Your comprehensive care team of doctors, nurses and rehabilitation staff at Tuality Healthcare Neurology Clinic will evaluate your condition and develop a treatment strategy for your specific condition.

Migraines and Headaches

Migraine headaches can be incapacitating because of the severe pain, as well as nausea.

Treatment

Our treatment goal is to diagnose your headache disorder and develop a plan to manage it.


Stroke

A stroke happens suddenly and can happen to anyone. Stroke is more treatable than ever if you identify the symptoms early and get immediate treatment. The acronym F.A.S.T. is an easy way to remember how to spot the signs of stroke:

F – Face drooping. Is one side of the person’s face drooping or numb? When he or she smiles, is the smile uneven

A – Arm weakness. Is the person experiencing weakness or numbness in one arm? Have the person raise both arms. Does one of the arms drift downward?

S – Speech difficulty. Is the person’s speech suddenly slurred or hard to understand? Is he or she unable to speak? Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence. Can he or she repeat it back?

T – Time to call 9-1-1. If any of these symptoms are present, dial 9-1-1 immediately. Check the time so you can report when the symptoms began.

Treatment

Our medical team provides emergency care if you experience a stroke and provide rehabilitation afterward. Our rehabilitation program helps you improve functions you’ve lost as the result of a stroke.


Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease

Forgetfulness, disorientation, and confusion that disrupts your daily life could be signs of dementia.  Alzheimer’s disease is a type of dementia that impairs thinking, behavior and memory and progressively gets worse with time.

Treatment

While there is no current cure for Alzheimer’s, we’ll work with you to tailor a treatment plan based on your unique circumstance. Part of the plan may include medication.


Epilepsy

Epilepsy is when you experience multiple seizures.  A few of the symptoms may include:

  • Arms and legs jerking uncontrollably

In some cases, medications are used to control epilepsy. Our medical team will perform an evaluation and determine if an anticonvulsant is appropriate for your treatment. Other options may include surgery or Vagus Nerve Stimulation.

  • Prickling or tingling sensation, numbness, and weakness in your hands, feet or legs.

Treatment

Early diagnosis and treatment offer the best chance of controlling neuropathy symptoms and preventing more serious ones from occurring. Treatment depends on the type of neuropathy you are experiencing.
