Neuro-Therapeutic Center

Neurology Associates offers a broad range of therapeutic services tailored to the treatment of individuals with neurological disorders and disabilities. While many of these neurological treatment services are offered in conjunction with local and regional providers, many are also offered in the comfort of our own Hickory, North Carolina office.

Our neurological therapy & treatment services include the following:

 

Botulinum toxin administration (Botox)
Botuinum toxin injections are approved for treatment of cervical dystonia in adults to decrease the severity of abnormal head position and associated neck pain. Certain forms of botulinum toxin are also approved for the treatment of strabismus, blepharospasm, spasticity, and chronic migraines. Botox therapy blocks the nerve from releasing acetylcholine. As a result, the muscle spasms stop or are greatly reduced, providing relief from symptoms.

 

Vagal Nerve stimulator adjustment
Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) is a type of treatment in which short bursts of electrical energy are directed into the brain via the vagus nerve, a large nerve in the neck. The energy comes from a battery, about the size of a silver dollar, which is surgically implanted under the skin, usually on the chest. The device delivers small electrical stimulation bursts every few minutes. Select providers with Neurology Associates are skilled in making adjustments to this device to optimize control of a patient’s seizures.

 

Deep Brain Stimulator adjustment
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a brain treatment in which mild electrical signals stimulate your brain. The signals reorganize your brain's electrical impulses, causing improved symptoms in many conditions affecting your brain. You may have deep brain stimulation on one or both sides of your brain, depending on your condition. This device is mostly used to treat individuals who suffer from essential tremor, Parkinsons disease, and some forms of dystonia. Select providers with Neurology Associates are skilled in making adjustments to this device to optimize control of a patient’s particular condition.
