What is a Neurology?
Neurology is a medical specialty for diagnosing and treating disorders of the brain, spinal cord, and cranial/peripheral nerves. These disorders can present in a variety of symptoms, such as headache, dizziness, nerve pain, sensory loss, weakness, movement problems, or cognitive decline.
