Imagine if you couldn’t walk normally or get up from a chair. What if parts of your body moved when you didn’t want them to. Imagine if all the muscles in your trunk or arms contracted without your control in a painful twisted distortion of terror. If you have a movement disorder, you experience these kinds of movements. Dyskinesia is a common symptom of many movement disorders. Dyskinesia results in broken or jerky motions. Tremors are a type of dyskinesia.
Nerve diseases cause many movement disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease. Other causes include injuries, autoimmune diseases, infections and certain medicines. Many movement disorders are inherited, which means they run in families.
Treatment varies by disorder. Frederick A. Clary, DC utilizes natural interventions like muscle firing pattern re-education, antagonist balancing, proprioceptive re-education, dynamic equilibrium conditioning, “stack/ stagger” ADL education and dietary supplementation. Frederick A. Clary, D.C. will work with your medical professionals as you begin to functionally improve under Dr. Clary’s care. In that case, the goal of treatment is to improve brain function first then the muscle coordination will improve subsequently.
