The brain, the spinal cord and the nerves – the nervous system is what keeps us alive. Sure, all the other organs are important but they all work on the command of this system. The brain and the spinal cord command and the nerves pass on the message. So, you can very well imagine what might go wrong if your child has an issue with her or his nervous system.
And here you approach the saviour, the paediatric neurologist.
What is paediatric neurology?
The branch of medicine that deals with issues related to the nervous system of a child, is called paediatric neurology. A neurologist needs to take additional training to be able to deal with a child’s nervous system.
Scope of paediatric neurology: Paediatric psychology deals with congenital, genetic, and developed neurological defects like movement disorders, speech disorders, cerebral palsy, autism, epilepsy etc. in children. In fact, it’s not possible to list down all the ways a nerve disorder can manifest itself in a child. Each child’s symptoms will be unique. Sometimes, symptoms which look like indicating a particular diseases, turn out to be a paediatric neurological disorder instead.
