A neurologist is a medical doctor or osteopath trained in the diagnosis, treatment and recovery of disorders and diseases of the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles. Neurologists may perform examinations of the nerves in the head and neck, muscle strength/movement, balance, ambulation, reflexes, sensations, memory, speech, language, or other cognitive abilities. They also use diagnostic tools such as:

  • Computerized tomography (CT) scan
  • Electromyelogram (EMG)
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Spinal tap
  • Electroencephalograph (EEG)
  • Magnetic resonance angiogram (MRA)
  • Nerve conduction study (NCS)
