Neurology is a branch of medical science that handles the treatment of your nervous system diseases and conditions. Our nervous system comprises two different systems, Central nervous system and the Peripheral nervous system. The central nervous system or the CNS contains the brain and the spinal cord. The peripheral nervous system or PNS involves the nerves and ganglia outside the brain and spinal cord.
Brain doctors in Bangalore, also called neurologists, study how the brain interacts with the body and how outside stimulants affect the brain and specialize in diagnosing and treating disorders of the brain and spinal cord or entire nervous system.
The human nervous system is a complicated yet critical system of the body. If not given proper attention and care to symptoms like sharp headache, pain and numbness, it may lead to brain hemorrhage, stroke and paralysis in the longer run. Therefore, you should see or consult a brain doctor or neurologist if you suspect problems related to your nervous system.
