Neurology: along the neural pathways, information about what we have perceived from sensory organs comes to the brain – the nervous system is responsible for the high quality processing of this information. The nervous system organises and coordinates all the life processes of the body – it provides our thinking, speaking and movement abilities, as well as the ability to sense emotions. A disease may cause both cerebral and peripheral nerve damage. The symptoms are pain, movement and receptor system disorders. A neurologist treats diseases which cause these disorders. Even during a simple but careful examination a neurologist is often able to precisely determine the cause of the unpleasant symptoms, but, in case of necessity, a neurologist also refers to additional examinations.

People complain about these problems very often nowadays. It is important to start the treatment of this pain and unpleasant feeling syndromes duly and correctly. Their causes may be different, therefore after a careful examination of a patient, a neurologist selects the most suitable treatment method for every patient.
