The nervous system is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves which together control the entire working of the body. Any malfunctioning of any part of the nervous system can result in trouble moving, swallowing, speaking, breathing, or even learning. Problems with memory, senses, and mood have also been reported.

You might have noticed that you or a loved one may be experiencing some of the common symptoms like headaches regularly, but what causes these neurological disorders? Such dysfunction can be due to extremely diverse reasons. The spinal cord and the brain are structured by numerous membranes that are vulnerable to force and external pressure. These nerves that are located deep under the skin are prone to damage. Neurological disorders range from affecting a single neuron to sometimes an entire neurological pathway. Even the slightest disturbance to the structural pathway of a neuron results in major dysfunction.
There are currently more than 600 different types of neurological disorders affecting humans with symptoms ranging from mild to moderate and at times severe.
