"Rare diseases" of the autonomic nervous system: not rare - only rarely recognized
Treatment of "rare neurological diseases" in the Neuro Praxis Düsseldorf
Rare diseases include, for example, chronic inflammatory diseases of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) in the context of infections or autoimmune diseases, toxic nerve damage, thyroid diseases, but also the lack of certain vitamins or trace elements. Preventive examinations and, in individual cases, imaging examinations of the chest and abdomen are also included in the search for the cause.
At Neuro Praxis Düsseldorf, it is not only important to us to offer you a comprehensive range of diagnostics and treatments. It is just as important to us to train your eye for the body and to give you helpful recommendations for everyday life. Diseases of the autonomic nervous system are by no means rare. Because they have received little diagnostic attention so far, we do not know how many people are affected. But the number of chronically ill patients with vegetative dysfunctions in Germany is estimated by experts to be at least seven figures.
Some causes can be treated well. Thanks to many years of experience in the field of polyneuropathy, especially with involvement of the vegetative (autonomous) nervous system, we include a wide range of causes in the diagnosis. In addition, we work closely with colleagues in other medical specialties. The meanwhile extensive network of our cooperation with specialized doctors helps us to clarify and treat rare diseases.
The spectrum of drug treatment options is also wide. Pain relief, sleep improvement and also an improvement in mood can be achieved. However, medication is not always necessary for treatment. The non-drug treatment methods that we use in the treatment are just as diverse.
