Neurological Examination

A neurological examination is a systematic evaluation of the nervous system to assess its function and detect any abnormalities. Various components of the nervous system, such as motor function, sensory perception, coordination, reflexes, and cognitive ability, are assessed using a battery of tests and examinations. This test aids in the identification and diagnosis of a variety of neurological problems, including strokes, neuropathies, and neurodegenerative diseases. Typically, the evaluation includes testing for mental health, balance, coordination, reflexes, and physical strength. It is a useful tool for directing suitable treatment regimens and tracking the development of neurological illnesses.
