What does a Neurologist do?

Neurologists (نیورولاجسٹ) are concerned with a wide range of ailments that can strike the nervous system and impair the body. They perform the important task of diagnosing the problem, which is a very complicated process as the human brain is very sophisticated and issues are not always very clear.

Moreover, they also treat the problems ailing the spinal cord. Nerves play an important role in the communication system of the body, and any broken chain has ramifications for the overall health of the patient. It is the neurologist’s role to diagnose and treat these problems.

Similarly, many brain disorders cannot be cured. Brain cells do not rejuvenate, so any damage done to them is permanent. For example, conditions like Alzheimer’s occur due to cognitive decline, which cannot be cured. In such cases, neurologists (دماغ کا ڈاکٹر) help with disease management. Good and timely treatment can delay cognitive decline and considerably improve the condition of the patient.

The scope of diseases and conditions cured by neurologists is very broad. From mental disorders like Alzheimer’s, to brain-muscle coordination and migraines, their expertise involves interacting with a wide range of patients.
