International Movement Disorders day: 29th november 2023!
Today is World Movement Disorders Day. Movement disorders represent some of the most complex neurological diseases. Yet, most healthcare professionals are not aware of what a movement disorder is.
Through increased awareness about these disorders, we can improve care and outcomes for patients across the globe. Because most physicians lack experience with these diseases — and because they are challenging to diagnose, even for experts — patients are often misdiagnosed, and go years without the specialty care they need.
If more providers and people with movement disorder symptoms are able to recognize when these diseases may be the cause, they will be able connect with specialists to receive proper care.
