The Atkinson Morley Movement Disorders Group provides assessment, diagnosis and treatment for people with movement disorders.

Movement disorders are conditions involving the nervous system that affect the speed, fluency, quality and ease of body movements.

Parkinson’s disease, dystonia and essential tremor are common Movement Disorders.

In recent years, there has been tremendous growth in new diagnostic information, pharmacological and neurosurgical treatments for Movement Disorders, as well as a greater understanding of impaired motor control function.
