Neurological Exam

If your child’s nervous system isn’t working properly, it can cause delays in normal development and functioning. Early detection improves the odds of avoiding long-term complications. To assess your child’s nervous system, we perform a pediatric neurological exam (a simple series of tests that allow our doctor to assess your child’s nervous system).

We may perform a neurological exam if your child complains of:

  • headaches
  • blurry vision
  • fatigue
  • fever of unknown cause
  • change in balance or coordination
  • numbness or tingling in the arms or legs
  • decrease in movement of the arms or legs
  • tremor
