Motor and sensory abnormalities, like weakness,

Pain, numbness, and tingling.

Diagnosed through imaging, biopsy, and patient

History, treatments include symptom management

And treatment of the underlying disorder causing

The nerve damage.

Include immobilization, stabilization of physiology,

Surgery, and medication to relieve intracranial

Pressure. Long-term care includes PT, OT, sup-

Portive care, and symptom management.

Hydrocephalus is an excess of CSF in the brain

Due to trauma, birth defects, tumors, etc. Symp-

Toms vary with age: skull expansion and irritability

In babies; irritability, vomiting, seizures, sleepi-

Ness, and dementia in older patients.

Diagnosed through imaging and pressure moni-

Toring, treatments can include a shunt insertion.

Cerebral palsy (CP) causes nonprogressive motor

Deficits in young children. Risk factors include

Premature birth, low birthweight, developmental

Diagnosis is difficult.Anoxic anoxia it includes the observation of

Childhood motor skills and the ruling out of other

Disorders.

There is no cure. Patients receive PT, OT, assistive

Devices, and symptom management.

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive loss of

Dopamine neurons that can present with resting

Tremors, slow movement, rigidity, and cognitive

And emotional disturbances.

Diagnosed via patient history, imaging, and a neu-

Rological exam, dopamine enhancing drugs, symp-

Tom management, and deep brain stimulation can

Be used as treatments, but there is no cure.
