An Introduction to Movement Disorders
Movement disorders encompass a range of conditions including ataxia, dystonia, essential tremor, multiple system atrophy, Parkinson’s disease (PD) and restless legs syndrome. The treatment landscape of PD has seen numerous developments, including the introduction of dopamine agonists and MAO-B inhibitors, along with device-assisted therapies that prove particularly useful in advanced-stage disease. The first-line treatment of ataxia with botulinum toxin is long established, but new preparations of the drug are likely to contribute to the future landscape.
