What are Movement Disorders?

A movement disorder refers to a broad category of neurodegenerative conditions characterized by abnormal movement patterns, such as uncontrollable jerks, seizures, bradykinesia, spasms, and tremors. These disorders vary in presentation and may progress, leading to challenging complications. They can significantly impact daily activities and may even cause psychological struggles. Personalized diagnosis and management are crucial for improving patients’ quality of life.

What are some common Movement Disorders?

Parkinson’s Disease - Uncontrollable movements, jerks, and bradykinesia.
Dystonia - Involuntary muscle contractions.
Ataxia - Impairs coordination, balance, and speech.
Huntington’s - Inherited neuron breakdown in the brain.
Chorea - Sudden, uncontrollable jerks in limbs or face.
Tourette syndrome - Tics and repetitive sounds in children.

Recognising the Symptoms of Movement Disorders

Movement disorder symptoms can progress at a slow pace and vary in severity. Some common symptoms include:

  • Spasticity or muscle stiffness
  • Bradykinesia, or slowed movement
  • Akinesia or impairment of voluntary movement
  • Muscle contractions
  • Problems with swallowing
  • Speech-related abnormalities
  • Cognitive and behavioural abnormalities

What are the causes of Movement Disorders?

Movement disorders are neurological syndromes that drastically impact a person’s movement by affecting its speed, ease and fluency. Some of the factors that may contribute to the same include:

  • Genetic abnormalities
  • Severe infection 
  • Stroke and other vascular diseases 
  • Use of certain drugs and medicines
  • Injury to the brain or spinal cord 
  • An underlying metabolic disorder
  • Exposure to certain toxins

Diagnosis of Movement Disorders

Diagnosing movement disorders involves evaluating medical history, symptoms, and conducting a physical exam. No specific test can diagnose all movement disorders. Recordings of movements may aid in creating personalized treatment plans to address specific symptoms
