MOVEMENT DISORDER
SPECIALISTS

Movement disorder specialists are neurologists with additional training in movement disorders like Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders including dystonia, chorea, tics and tremors. They may be involved in research or education in addition to working with patients, and are often located in or near a major medical institution. The benefit of seeing a movement disorder specialist is that they are usually on the cutting-edge of knowledge and treatment of PD and other movement disorders and are often best equipped to tailor a plan of care for you and your specific needs.
A movement disorder specialist will work closely with your neurologist or current doctor to help ensure your needs are met. A movement disorder specialist is also likely to have relationships with other specialists and allied care professionals who could help provide a more holistic, or complete, level of care.
