Epilepsy - Shore Neurology, PA

Adult and Pediatric Epilepsy and Seizure Disorders

Epilepsy is a brain disorder that results in repeated seizures. Nerve cells (neurons) normally communicate with each other through electrical impulses. During a seizure, these impulses become overactive, causing strange sensations, emotions, and behavior, or sometimes convulsions, muscle spasms, and loss of consciousness. Having a seizure does not mean that a person has epilepsy. Only when a person has had two or more seizures is he or she considered to have epilepsy.

Back and Neck Pain - Shore Neurology, PA

Back and Neck Pain

Neck and back pain, especially pain in the lower back, is one of the most common health problems in adults. In fact, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) in 2014, lower back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Fortunately, most back and neck pain is temporary, resulting from short-term stress on the muscles or ligaments that support the spine rather than from a serious injury or medical condition such as nerve damage or kidney disease.

Multiple Sclerosis - Shore Neurology, PA

Mutliple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory, chronic, degenerative disorder that affects nerves in the brain and spinal cord. Myelin, the fatty substance that surrounds and insulates nerves and facilitates the conduction of nerve impulses is the initial target of inflammatory destruction in multiple sclerosis. MS is characterized by intermittent damage to myelin, called demyelination. Demyelination causes scarring and hardening (sclerosis) of nerve tissue in the spinal cord, brain and optic nerves.

Sleep is absolutely essential for normal, healthy function. Scientists and medical professionals still have much to learn about this complicated physiological phenomenon.

Stroke - Shore Neurology, PA


Strokes, or brain attacks, are a major cause of death and permanent disability. They occur when blood flow to a region of the brain is obstructed and may result in death of brain tissue. There are two main types of stroke: ischemic and hemorrhagic. Ischemic stroke is caused by blockage in an artery that supplies blood to the brain, resulting in a deficiency in blood flow (ischemia). Hemorrhagic stroke is caused by the bleeding of ruptured blood vessels (hemorrhage) in the brain.
