Adult Neurology focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of inborn, developmental, and acquired diseases of the central (brain and spinal cord) and peripheral (nerves and muscles) nervous systems in adults. For pediatric cases, please refer to our best pediatric neurology hospitals.

The central nervous system is encased in the skull and spine, but conditions like injuries to muscles or joints are outside neurology’s scope. Our expert neurology doctors in Dubai specialize in stress headache treatment, stroke management, and treatment for migraine headaches, ensuring comprehensive care at the best hospital for neurology.

What are the symptoms of a neurological disorder?

There are numerous symptoms that can point towards a neurological issue with some of them being nonspecific not necessarily meaning a neurological problem. Most of the time, pain and especially back pain, arises from bone structures and muscle contractions (spondylosis, discs …) so that you might require an orthopedic or neurosurgeon.

In case of any doubt, you can check with your family physician.

Some of them are as follows:

  • Headache
  • Numbness and /or tingling in one side of the body, arms and/or legs,
  • Weakness in one side of the body or in one limb.
