Children’s nervous systems are similar to adults, but their care requires additional skills. Pediatric neurologists have additional training in the special neurological needs of children, with their still-growing and developing brains and nervous systems. Pediatric neurologists’ training overlaps to an extent with neuromuscular neurologists and neurodevelopmental neurologists, because those conditions are often found in children.

Why you need to see them?

If your child experiences any of the following, their pediatrician or family doctor may refer them to a pediatric neurologist:
-Severe, frequent, or ongoing headaches
-Poor balance
-Unexplained loss of consciousness
-Memory loss
-Lack of sensation, numbness, or tingling
-Problems moving around
-Developmental delays
-Walking issues
-Unintentional jerks or tics
-Problems with coordination or other motor function.
If your child is diagnosed with a neurological condition, they will likely have to see a pediatric neurologist for treatment or monitoring.

What they do?

Pediatric neurologists treat most disorders related to the nervous system in children and young people. They are trained to understand and address a child’s unique needs, including child-specific conditions.
A pediatric neurologist will see patients with a wide range of conditions, from more common disorders like migraines or epilepsy, to rare or complex conditions like traumatic brain injury or degenerative neurological diseases.

Because Neurology is such a vast field, some neurologists may choose to focus on specific conditions that are very complex or require extensive treatment. Examples of such conditions include epilepsy, cerebral palsy, stroke, and brain tumors. By focusing on these specific conditions, neurologists are able to provide patients with the best possible care.

Physician consultation is a good opportunity and you should be prepared for it.

  • Carry all necessary medical records for the discussion. It helps in better understanding your heart condition and avoids repetition of diagnostic tests.
  • Make sure you discuss your past medical history, surgical history, family history, and medications that you are taking.
  • Discuss about your lifestyle habits, dietary habits and also about your profession. Your lifestyle and nature of job may be associated with the risk for cardiac diseases.
