Nerve & Muscle Disorder Treatment at Dr. Srikanth Neuro, Hyderabad

Specialized Care for Nerve and Muscle Disorders

Nerve and muscle disorders encompass a variety of conditions that affect the peripheral nerves, muscles, and the neuromuscular junctions that connect them. At Dr. Srikanth Neuro, we are dedicated to diagnosing and treating these disorders, helping patients manage symptoms and improve their quality of life.

Understanding Nerve and Muscle Disorders

Nerve and muscle disorders can result from genetic conditions, autoimmune diseases, infections, or other underlying health issues. These disorders often cause weakness, pain, numbness, and difficulties in movement, significantly impacting daily activities and overall well-being.

Common Nerve and Muscle Disorders We Treat

  • Peripheral Neuropathy: Damage to the peripheral nerves, causing weakness, numbness, and pain, typically in the hands and feet.
  • Myasthenia Gravis: An autoimmune disorder causing weakness and fatigue of the voluntary muscles.
  • Muscular Dystrophy: A group of genetic diseases characterized by progressive muscle weakness and degeneration.
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS): A progressive neurodegenerative disease affecting nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, leading to muscle weakness and atrophy.
  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome: An autoimmune disorder where the body’s immune system attacks the nerves, causing muscle weakness and paralysis.
  • Polymyositis and Dermatomyositis: Inflammatory muscle diseases causing muscle weakness and skin rashes.
  • Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease: A genetic disorder affecting the peripheral nerves, leading to muscle weakness and atrophy.

Diagnostic Services

At Dr. Srikanth Neuro, we use advanced diagnostic tools and techniques to accurately identify nerve and muscle disorders:

1. Electromyography (EMG) and Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS)

  • Purpose: Measure electrical activity of muscles and the speed of nerve signals.
  • Applications: Diagnosing conditions like peripheral neuropathy, myasthenia gravis, and muscular dystrophy.

2. Muscle Biopsy

  • Purpose: Removing a small sample of muscle tissue for laboratory analysis.
  • Applications: Diagnosing muscle disorders like muscular dystrophy and inflammatory myopathies.

3. Genetic Testing

  • Purpose: Identifying genetic mutations linked to hereditary nerve and muscle disorders.
  • Applications: Diagnosing conditions like muscular dystrophy and Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease.

4. Blood Tests

  • Purpose: Checking for markers of muscle damage, autoimmune activity, and other underlying conditions.
  • Applications: Diagnosing inflammatory muscle diseases and metabolic disorders.

Treatment Options

Based on the diagnosis, our specialists at Dr. Srikanth Neuro develop personalized treatment plans, which may include:

1. Medications

  • Immunosuppressants: To reduce immune system activity in autoimmune disorders.
  • Steroids: To decrease inflammation in conditions like polymyositis and dermatomyositis.
  • Anticonvulsants and Antidepressants: For neuropathic pain management.
  • Plasma Exchange (Plasmapheresis) and Intravenous Immunoglobulin (IVIG): For treating severe autoimmune disorders like Guillain-Barré syndrome.

2. Physical and Occupational Therapy

  • Physical Therapy: Exercises to improve strength, flexibility, and mobility.
  • Occupational Therapy: Techniques to enhance daily living skills and independence.

3. Assistive Devices

  • Braces and Orthotics: To support weak muscles and improve mobility.
  • Mobility Aids: Such as canes, walkers, and wheelchairs.
