Movement Disorders Care at CNSI

Movement disorders are neurodegenerative conditions that affect physical motion and function. Disorders like Parkinson’s disease are progressive; they grow more serious over time. A small number of cases can be genetic, but many are triggered by some environmental factor. Symptoms include shaking, tremors, slow movement, or rigidity. People over 60, Caucasians, and men are mostly at risk for Parkinson’s disease, although some as young as 18 can be diagnosed. At CNSI’s Movement Disorders Center, we treat children as well as adults.

Our experienced specialists and highly-trained providers are committed to the comprehensive treatment of movement disorders. We strive to provide patient-centered care and to craft a treatment plan that’s right for you. At the Clinical Neuroscience Institute’s Movement Disorders Center, we value your well-being, and work hard to find ways to help you live your best life.

Conditions We Treat

Our experienced and professional team of board-certified specialists and providers are educated and trained in the diagnosis and treatment of movement disorders, including:

Diagnosing Movement Disorders

Your doctor will take a close look at symptoms when a movement disorder is suspected. Your provider will also review your family and medical history, and conduct a physical examination. Arriving at a specific diagnosis may depend on certain tests like balance and gait testing, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, and DaT scans.

The DaT scan is an advanced nuclear imaging test used to diagnose movement disorders. The test produces images of certain types of degeneration associated with movement disorders, and has been effective in helping specialists accurately diagnose Parkinson's disease.

How We Treat Movement Disorders 

CNSI’s Movement Disorders Center offers a wide range of treatment options for patients suffering from a variety of movement disorders. Our treatment options include:  

Parkinson's Disease Clinical Trials

Participating in a clinical trial is an invaluable way to get involved in the pursuit of finding a cure or improving the quality of life for those with Parkinson's disease. Premier Health and Wright State University participate in an international study group - Parkinson's Study Group (PSG), for groundbreaking trials. 

PSG is the largest not-for-profit network of Parkinson centers in North America. Clinics participating in the group have played a vital role in bringing some of the most innovative drugs to market. Many of these medications have had significant impact upon changing the course of the neurological disease. 

Patients who participate in the Parkinson's Study group trials will have access to medications that may have not hit the market yet. In addition, the trials cover all associated costs including medication, clinical visits, laboratory tests, and neuroimaging. 

For more information about the clinical trials, contact the Clinical Neuroscience Institute, (844) 277-2894(844) 277-2894.

The skilled providers at the CNSI Movement Disorders Center are available to treat your symptoms so you can do more of the activities you enjoy. We offer evaluation and treatment in one location, so you don’t have to visit multiple centers to receive care.
