Movement Symptoms and Causes

Movement disorders are neurologic conditions that cause problems with Movement, such as

  • Increased Movement that can be voluntary (intentional) or involuntary (unintended)
  • Decreased or slow voluntary Movement

There are many different Movement disorders. Some of the more common types include

  • Ataxia, the loss of muscle coordination
  • Dystonia, in which involuntary contractions of your muscles cause twisting and repetitive Movements. The Movements can be painful.
  • Huntington's disease, an inherited disease that causes nerve cells in certain parts of the brain to waste away. This includes the nerve cells that help to control voluntary Movement.
  • Parkinson's disease, which is disorder that slowly gets worse over time. It causes tremors, slowness of Movement, and trouble walking.
  • Tourette syndrome, a condition which causes people to make sudden twitches, Movements, or sounds (tics)
  • Tremor and essential tremor, which cause involuntary trembling or shaking Movements. The Movements may be in one or more parts of your body.

Causes of Movement disorders include

  • Genetics
  • Infections
  • Medicines
  • Damage to the brain, spinal cord, or peripheral nerves
  • Metabolic disorders
  • Stroke and vascular diseases
  • Toxins

Treatment varies by disorder. Medicines can cure some disorders. Others get better when an underlying disease is treated. Often, however, there is no cure. In that case, the goal of treatment is to improve symptoms and relieve pain.

Movement Clinical Trials and Studies

Treatments might be new drugs or new combinations of drugs, new surgical procedures or devices, or new ways to use existing treatments. The goal of clinical trials is to determine if a new test or treatment works and is safe. Clinical trials can also look at other aspects of care, such as improving the quality of life for people with chronic illnesses. People participate in clinical trials for a variety of reasons. Healthy volunteers say they participate to help others and to contribute to moving science forward. Participants with an illness or disease also participate to help others, but also to possibly receive the newest treatment and to have the additional care and attention from the clinical trial staff.
