An overview of movement disorder!

Have you lately experienced moving of the body parts when you didn’t want them to? Is it something
that you have never experienced before in your life? If it happens, then you are suffering from
movement disorders. In this disorder, you may experience these kinds of impaired movement. Basically,
movement disorders are neurological conditions that affect the speed, quality, fluency, and ease of
movement.
Abnormal fluency or speed of movement is commonly known as dyskinesia, which is a common
symptom of many movement disorders. It may involve excessive movement or slowed or absent
voluntary movement, which is commonly known as hypokinesia.
There are certain conditions that you may experience, if you are suffering from the movement disorders.











Lack of coordination, often producing jerky movements is generally known as ataxia.
Involuntary movement and prolonged muscle contraction is called dystonia.
Parkinson’s disease.
Multiple system atrophies.
Tremor.
Wilson disease.
Huntington’s disease.
Restless legs syndrome.
Tics.
Tourette’s syndrome.

The aforementioned conditions are some conditions that you may experience under movement
disorders. It is a fact that nerve diseases cause many movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease
and many movement disorders are inherited.

As mentioned above, tourette’s syndrome is an inherited disorder characterized by multiple motor and
vocal tics. Its symptoms usually develop during childhood or early adolescence. Impulsivity, obsessions,
inattention, hyperactivity and compulsions are some behavioral problems that often develop in the
patients.
As far as tics are concerned, they are involuntary muscle contractions that interrupt normal activities.
Basically, they are preceded by a strong sensation or urge that is temporarily relieved below mentioned
muscle contractions:







Grunting.
Blinking.
Clearing the throat.
Sighing.
Often shrugging the shoulders.
Facial twitching.

When it comes to signs and symptoms of movement disorders, it varies and depends on the severity and
type of the condition. The severity of movement disorder symptoms can be affected by factors such as
fatigue, anxiety, medication, and stress.
