Movement Disorders Clinic
The University of Michigan Movement Disorders Clinic provides initial consultations, second opinion consultations and continuing care for patients with movement disorders.
When patients come to our clinic, they are seen by a Movement Disorders specialist. Our specialists are academic neurologists who provide clinical care, conduct research and teach other health care professionals at the University.
The Movement Disorders neurologist takes a complete medical history. This generally includes information about a patient’s current and past symptoms, other medical problems, past and current medications (including dosages and side effects), family history and social history. The Movement Disorders neurologist may also review other medical records related to the current problem and recent MRIs or CT scans of the brain or spine, along with any accompanying written reports.
Because the diagnosis of a movement disorder comes from clinical judgment more often than from a laboratory or radiological test, the Movement Disorders neurologist will also perform a thorough physical examination. You may be asked to give us written permission to videotape your movement disorder as a way to record the problems you are having. Our Movement Disorders specialists will then discuss potential diagnoses, order any tests or procedures required to confirm the diagnosis, and formulate a plan for your care. We always encourage a care partner, family member or friend to accompany you to the visit, and we will spend as much time as necessary talking with you in order to address all questions or concerns.
