Movement Disorders are a group of neurological conditions that cause problems with movement - either unwanted movements, or slowness and poverty of movement. Parkinson's disease is the most common of these conditions, and affects approximately 1% of the population. The treatment is complex, but does work, and there have been many recent exciting developments in the field. This book aims to help neurologists and other doctors in the recognition and treatment ofthese important medical problems by using the popular concise format of the Oxford Handbook, text that is easy to understand, and a DVD with videos of people with different movement disorders.
