Vertigo is a condition where a person feels as if they or the objects around them are moving when they are not. Often it feels like a spinning or swaying movement. This may be associated with nausea, vomiting, sweating, or difficulties walking. It is typically worsened when the head is moved.
Alzheimer's disease is a progressive Neuro degenerative disorder in which a gradual decline in the memory along with one area of higher intellectual function is involved. Although Alzheimer's develops differently for every individual, they share some common symptoms. Early symptoms are often mistakenly thought to be age related concerns manifestations of stress.
Ataxia is a condition where the coordination of muscle movements is lost that includes 'Abnormality in Walking'. Ataxia is a non-specific clinical manifestation that shows the dysfunction of the parts of the nervous system that coordinate movement, such as the cerebellum. Ataxiameans Loss of control of body movements, thus lacking coordination.
Human movement and function requires a balance of muscle length and strength between opposing muscles surrounding a joint. On the other hand, 'muscle imbalance' occurs when opposing muscles provide different directions of tension due to tightness or weakness. Muscle balance is considered to be the harmonious action where muscles that surround a joint work together with normal opposing force to keep the bones involved with the joint centered, thus accomplishing human movement. Muscular imbalance is seen when the muscles that surround a joint provide different values of tension, sometimes weaker or tighter than normal, thus limiting the joint movement. Pathological muscle imbalance occurs when the imbalance of the muscles begins to inhibit function. This pathological muscle imbalance may or may not result from a traumatic event, it is usually associated with pain and dysfunction, although there are cases where pain is not apparent, however pathological muscle imbalances ultimately lead to joint dysfunction and changes in normative muscle movement patterns
Osteoarthritis is a form of arthritis that features the breakdown and eventual loss of the cartilage of one or more joints. Cartilage is a protein substance that serves as a "cushion" between the bones of the joints. There can be swelling, warmth, and creaking of the affected joints. Pain and stiffness of the joints can also occur after long periods of inactivity (for example, sitting in a theater). In severe osteoarthritis, complete loss of the cartilage cushion causes friction between bones, causing pain even at rest or pain with limited motion.
Osteoporosis(Thinning of Bones) is a disease of bones that leads to an increased risk of fracture. In osteoporosis, the bone mineral density (BMD) is reduced, bone microarchitecture deteriorates, and the amount and variety of proteins in bone are altered.
Osteomalacia is the softening of the bones caused by impaired bone metabolism primarily due to inadequate levels of available phosphate, calcium, and vitamin D.The impairment of bone metabolism causes inadequate bone mineralization. The most common cause of osteomalacia is a deficiency of vitamin D, which is normally derived from sunlight exposure and from the diet.
Headache canbe described as a pain anywhere in the region of the head or neck.Headache is a frequently encountered neurological symptom but seldom associated with significant neurological disease unless accompanied by other symptoms. Frequent headaches affect relationships and employment. There is also an increased risk of depression in persons with severe headaches.
Cluster headache(CH) is a neurological disorder characterized by recurrent, severe headaches on one side of the head, typically around the eye. There is often accompanying eye watering, nasal congestion, or swelling around the eye, on the affected side. This can last for 15 minutes to 3 hours.Attacks often occur in clusters
