Neurological diseases impact the nervous system, in other words the brain, spinal cord, and nerves and muscles throughout the body. There are more than 600 neurological diseases, ranging from muscular dystrophy to spina bifida to epilepsy. Some are common, and others are extremely rare and not yet well understood.
Being diagnosed with and managing a neurological disease can be overwhelming, whether it affects you or someone in your family. You can rely on the neurologists at Essentia Health–Fargo to guide your treatment with competence and compassion. Our neurology care team can’t always cure a condition, but we can manage it, often slow down the progression, and give you back a sense of control over your life.
