Movement Disorders

If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with a movement disorder, it’s important that you start working with an expert as soon as possible. Many of these neurological conditions can worsen over time. And while there are no cures for these conditions, early treatment can help slow the progression of the disease. 

At Columbia, we are world leaders in research and treatment for movement disorders. As a major clinical center, we have extensive experience working with these difficult-to-diagnose conditions. We offer the latest innovative approaches to managing and slowing their progression.
