- pains: headaches, spinal, facial, and others;
- meningeal signs: increased muscle tone in the occipital region, photophobia, etc.;
- disorders of coordination and fine motor skills;
- decreased memory and attention;
- sleep disorders;
- motor disorders (pareses, paralyzes, etc.);
Which nervous system diseases can be treated abroad?
Often patients prefer to receive medical care in the Departments of neurology abroad in countries where the development of healthcare has reached a high level. Neurology refers to the medical fields that require expensive equipment and highly qualified specialists. The quality of medical care varies significantly in different countries and hospitals.
The neurologists abroad successfully treat a variety of neurological diseases, such as:
- stroke and its complications;
- chronic cerebrovascular insufficiency;
- inflammatory diseases: meningitis, encephalitis, brain abscesses;
- neurites (inflammation of the nerves);
- Guillain-Barré syndrome;
- Alzheimer's disease;
- Parkinson's disease;
- autonomic nervous system disorders;
- myasthenias and myopathies, progressive muscular dystrophies;
- congenital, degenerative nervous system diseases;
- multiple sclerosis;
- traumatic nervous system injuries;
- oncological diseases.
Benefits of neurology treatment abroad
The treatment of neurological diseases abroad has obvious advantages. They force the patient to travel long distances and increase the expenses for the treatment. Indeed, in this case, he can expect much better treatment results.
Diagnostics is more effective in hospitals in developed countries. All modern examination methods are available here, while in the countries with a low economic level, they are limited or not used. In countries such as Germany, neurosurgery develops quite fast. A stable result can be achieved in many neurological diseases after the operations.
Neuritis (nerve inflammation), neuropathies, and central nervous system diseases are successfully treated in German hospitals. The effective schemes of drug therapy are applied. Modern operations are carried out in the departments of neurosurgery. Such non-drug techniques as physiotherapy, massage, acupuncture, physical therapy, psychotherapy, etc., are widely used.
Radiosurgical techniques are also used here. They often replace neurosurgery, allowing the patient to get rid of aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, or small tumors without surgery. Gamma Knife and CyberKnife are used for this purpose in the best hospitals abroad.
