General neurologists care for a wide range of neurological conditions. They provide comprehensive care including medicines; devices like nerve stimulators; injections for pain; guidance for lifestyle changes’ and referral to physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and/or psychological counseling.
Neurologists diagnose conditions using imaging technology, like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scans. They also use tests like electroencephalography (EEG) and electromyography (EMG) to monitor electrical signals in the nerves and diagnose problems.
