Which neuron carries action signals to the brain?
1 of 5
Sensory neurons are nerve cells that carry signals of the external stimuli and convert them to internal electrical impulses. Circuits which transmit signals are located in our spinal cord. These signals are responsible for carrying a message to the brain for a response. Some of the sensory neurons activate motor neurons to respond to the tactile stimuli to achieve muscle contraction. This coordination between sensory and motor neurons is essential for better physical activity, maintaining balance while walking, and doing day to day work.
Common neurological conditions that require the help of a neurophysiologist are _______________?
2 of 5
All of the above diseases are the most common neurological conditions and damage the nervous system of the body. Neurophysiologists are the doctors who help to maintain the coordination between the mind and body. Due to the damage or weakness in the nervous system, some of the body function signals do not reach the mind easily which causes body dysfunction. This manifests as body imbalance, miscoordination, and muscle weakness. With the expertise of neurophysiologists, the patient can exercise and learn how to control this imbalance which makes the body functions in a balanced way.
Neurophysiology is a combination of treatments used to restore motor controls in patients.
3 of 5
This statement is true. The physiologists use a combination of exercises and physical methods to help the patient to restore their physical imbalance. This type of treatment is put into practice after studying the patient's condition and extent of the effects of neurological disorders. These methods are selected to enhance the motor skill and restore the strength in the muscles. Not only one method is applicable for a patient but a combination of treatments may be required. The overall development of the nervous system and muscle strength is the motive of neurophysiologists. Some of the exercises include stretching, vibrating the joints, massage methods, and cryotherapy.
What do Neuro Physiotherapists help in?
4 of 5
When a patient suffering from prolonging disease and does not use part of the body for a longer time, the muscles in that part of the body tend to loosen up and get weak with time. The neuro physiotherapist helps patients with exercises and trains them to use that part slowly and gradually to build some movement in the body. This condition is the result of a stroke, injury, or multiple cases of sclerosis. Muscle building and restoring is part of the physiotherapy and helps a patient to improve their muscle strengths.
Neuro Physiotherapists help in improving the mental state of the patient suffering from neurological problems.
5 of 5
Neurophysiologists are doctors who work with the patients and help them to regain their body coordination with the brain. Patients who have suffered neurological problems and injuries often tend to lose mind and body coordination, suffer muscle weakness and lose control of their nervous system. Physiotherapists help them to regain control by using various methods like exercise, tapping, brushing, and massage therapy. Physiotherapists are not psychologists who support patients with mental disease.
