Brain and Nervous system

The specialists at Meritas Health Neurology are experts in brain and spine health. They understand neuroscience — the function of the brain and nervous system — and are ready to treat you with advanced technology and care.

Conditions We Treat

Diagnosing Your Condition

Your primary care provider may refer you to a neurologist for advanced diagnostic tests, such as:

  • Nerve conduction studies – Assesses nerve damage by showing how fast electrical signals move through a nerve
  • Electromyography (EMG) – Measures the response of muscles and nerves to electrical activity to find the cause of muscle weakness
  • Electroencephalogram (EEG) – Measures the brain’s electrical activity

Brain and Spine Treatment

Your neurologist will create a treatment plan that fits your specific diagnosis. Treatment options include:

  • Botox (botulinum toxin) treatments – Reduces involuntary muscle spasms or pain and provides migraine relief
  • Deep brain stimulation therapy – Uses electrodes to help control motor symptoms of movement disorders
  • Occipital nerve block – Relieves pain from chronic headaches via injection of a steroid
  • SphenoCath – Provides minimally invasive, urgent treatment for migraine relief
  • Vagus nerve stimulator – Stimulates the vagus nerve with electrical impulses to treat epilepsy

If your condition requires neurosurgery, we’ll connect you with Meritas Health Neurosurgery for comprehensive care.

Continuum of Care

After treatment, you may need rehabilitative support to:

  • Improve coordination and balance
  • Increase physical activity and movement
  • Live life more comfortably with less pain

Whether you need education on managing a newly diagnosed condition or you’re looking to get back to the activities you love, Meritas Health Neurology is here for you.
