    Some many illnesses and disorders impact children’s neurological systems that fall under the umbrella of the field of child neurology.

    Before sending children to pediatric neurologists for specialized care, general practitioners consult with pediatric neurologists. Pediatric neurologists diagnose, treat, and provide advice to children with long-term neurological problems.

    Child neurologists may be found in a variety of settings, including children’s hospitals, outpatient clinics, university medical centers, and private clinics. Doctors who specialize in pediatric illnesses and special needs combine their knowledge of nervous system diagnosis and treatment with their expertise in pediatric diseases and exceptional requirements.

    Treatment Options

    Because of technology advancements and research-driven discoveries, there are a variety of pediatric neurology treatment choices currently available to parents. Your child’s treatment options may include one or more of the following, based on their condition:

    Medication

    For certain neurological diseases, medication may help control discomfort and reduce side effects. If your kid has a particular medical issue, the alternatives accessible to you may differ. Pediatric neurologists will go through the pros and cons of medication with you in greater detail.

    Neurological Rehabilitation

    When viruses target the nerves or nervous system and cause neurological illnesses or disorders, one therapeutic option is neurological rehabilitation. Stroke, traumatic brain injury, degenerative disease, and infection are among diseases for which neurological rehabilitation is used. Rehab may assist in regaining impaired functions and in reducing symptoms. The team of professionals will prepare a treatment plan for your kid after thoroughly evaluating your child’s health.

    Therapies

    Your child’s pediatric neurologist may suggest the following treatments if mobility or speech are problematic for your child:

    • Physical therapy
    • Occupational therapy
    • Speech therapy

    While focusing on different aspects of care, each of these treatments also works in conjunction with the others when appropriate to give a better chance for success.

    Neurosurgery

    Surgery is sometimes the best choice for treating some illnesses. Several facilities provide spine, vascular neurosurgery, malignancies, and disorders including Chiari and Hydrocephalus with neurosurgery as a therapy option. Pediatric neurosurgeons are trained to provide excellent pre, during, and post-operative care for your kid. It is made certain that you are kept informed at all times and are aware of what to anticipate throughout the surgical procedure. Additionally, you will learn how to effectively assist your kid through this time and into recovery with the aid of the team.

    When to See a Doctor?

    A neurologist may be visited for several reasons, the most common of which are as follow:

    • Headaches
    • Seizures or epilepsy
    • Developmental delay
    • Neuromuscular problems
    • Genetic issues which can present with neurological issues
    • Learning disorders/disability
    • Autism

    A professional who specializes in the treatments of children’s brain or nervous system disorders should be consulted if a kid has seizures, epilepsy, delays in sitting, speaking, or walking, signs of muscle weakness, unusual headaches, or aberrant movements should be observed.
