Movement Disorders Care at OhioHealth
Focusing on Your Quality of Life — Not Just Your Disease
We’re dedicated to helping patients with movement disorders manage their symptoms, regain function or control over their movements, and maintain quality of life. We do this by spending time listening to how a movement disorder is affecting you, working step by step through each symptom, understanding your struggles, and then developing a treatment plan that is individualized to you and your specific needs. And, we do this working closely with your primary care physician or referring neurologist, making recommendations for care and follow-up information.

Because treatments can vary significantly among various types of movement disorders, this is critical to the diagnosis and treatment management process.
- A one-on-one consultation that includes a health history and neurological examination
- Determination of diagnostic options (laboratory and/or imaging) and work-up
- Education about diagnostic options
- Discussion of treatment plan
