Cerebral Palsy is caused by a non-progressive brain injury or malformation that occurs while the child’s brain is under development, which primarily affects body movement and muscle coordination.
Chronic Pain is pain that lasts 3-6 months or more. The feeling of pain comes from a series of messages that go through your nervous system and continue to fire even after you’ve healed.
Dementias including Alzheimer’s disease is a broad category of brain diseases that cause a long-term and often gradual decrease in the ability to think and remember that is great enough to affect a person’s daily functioning

Huntington’s Disease is a genetic disorder that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain. It deteriorates a person’s physical and mental abilities during their prime working years and has no cure.
Insomnia is difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep and can be caused by many factors, but it also may also be caused by certain neurotransmitters in the brain that are known to be involved with sleep and wakefulness
Migraines is a primary headache disorder characterized by recurrent headaches that are moderate to severe. Typically, the headaches affect one half of the head, are pulsating in nature, and last from two to 72 hours.
Movement Disorders including Tics/Tourette’s Syndrome are clinical syndromes with either an excess of movement or small voluntary and involuntary movements, unrelated to weakness or spasticity.
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a potentially disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord in which the immune system attacks the protective sheath that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between your brain and the rest of your body.
Myasthenia Gravis is caused by a breakdown in the normal communication between nerves and muscles and is characterized by weakness and rapid fatigue of any of the muscles under your voluntary control.
Myopathies are neuromuscular disorders in which the primary symptom is muscle weakness due to dysfunction of muscle fiber
Neuropathy is a result of damage to the nerves most often found in the Peripheral Nervous System that controls the motor, sensory, or autonomic nerves required to transmit voluntary and involuntary messages to the brain.
Parkinson’s Disease is a long-term degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that mainly affects the motor system. The symptoms generally come on slowly over time.
Seizures occur because of sudden, abnormal electrical activity in the brain. There are many types of seizures and some have mild symptoms while others cause convulsions.

Stroke is a disease that affects the arteries leading to and within the brain.
Tremor is an unintentional, rhythmic muscle movement involving to-and-fro movements of one or more parts of the body. It can affect the hands, arms, head, face, voice, trunk, and legs. Most tremors occur in the hands
Tumors of the Nervous System is a disease in which abnormal cells form in the tissues of the brain and/or spinal cord.
Vertigo is a sense of rotation, rocking, or the world spinning, experienced even when someone is perfectly still.
