Movement Disorders

Movement disorders are neurological conditions that affect your ability to control movement. Some movement disorders are inherited while others may be the result of injury or of unknown origin. Some of the most common movement disorders are Parkinson’s disease, Tourette’s syndrome, essential tremor and restless leg syndrome. Many movement disorders make it difficult to initiate voluntary movement or control involuntary movement.

At UCR Health, our movement disorder physicians are fellowship trained and specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of these disorders. We work closely with you and your family to determine the best treatment available. Our goal is to provide treatment options that result in optimal quality of life.

Our medical offices are located in Riverside making it convenient for people living in our local communities of Riverside, Corona, Moreno Valley and Palm Springs to receive care. Our physicians are affiliated with the University of California, Riverside School of Medicine, assuring you and your family that we will deliver the best care with access to other specialties should you need them.
