Movement Disorders

Marked by visible and invisible symptoms, movement disorders include diseases like Parkinson’s and Huntington’s. If not managed, these diseases can be pervasive and debilitating, as they affect the brain’s ability to operate motor skills such as walking, hand dexterity, and even speech. Butler’s advances in treatment and ongoing research continue to improve the quality of life for individuals faced with these conditions.
