Movement disorders are neurological conditions that cause abnormal physical movements, posture, or coordination. These disorders may be inherited or may be acquired by brain injury, inflammation, and other diseases.
The child neurology specialists at Loma Linda University Children’s Health have special expertise in diagnosing and treating children with a wide variety of movement disorders, often caused by rare genetic disorders.
