Movement Disorders

These disorders are group of nervous system conditions that cause abnormal movement or increased movement, which may or may not be voluntary or involuntary. These disorders can cause slow or oose movements. They are divided in two categories- hyperkinetic and hypokinetic.

Hyperkinetic movement disorders refer to repetitive, dyskinesia or excessive involuntary movements. Hypokinetic movement disorders refer to reduced movement, akinesia, and rigidity. Movement disorders have been known to be associated with autoimmune disease.
