Neurology Q&A

What is neurology?

Neurology is a branch of medicine that deals with disorders of the nervous system, involving the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles.

It focuses on diagnosing and treating various neurological conditions, ranging from common issues like headaches and neuropathies to more complex disorders such as epilepsy, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and multiple sclerosis.

What issues can neurology address?

Neurology addresses a wide array of issues related to the nervous system, including but not limited to:

Neurodegenerative diseases

These include conditions like Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), which involve progressive damage to nerve cells, leading to cognitive decline, movement disorders, and muscle weakness.


Dr. Wu specializes in managing the aftermath of strokes, which occur when blood flow to the brain is disrupted, leading to brain damage. She works on managing complications and assisting with rehabilitation.

Headaches and migraines

Neurology helps diagnose and manage headaches that include tension headaches, cluster headaches, and migraines, offering treatments to alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life.

Neuromuscular disorders

Conditions affecting the nerves and muscles, such as peripheral neuropathy, myasthenia gravis, and muscular dystrophy, fall under neurology. Dr. Wu can develop treatment plans to manage symptoms and slow disease progression.

How does neurology work for post-stroke recovery?

In post-stroke recovery, neurology helps patients regain function and independence. At NYC Acupuncture + Wellness, Dr. Wu integrates traditional medicine techniques from China, Japan, and Korea with Western medicine to provide comprehensive care for post-stroke recovery patients. 

Acupuncture, a staple of Traditional Chinese Medicine, stimulates specific points in the body, promoting circulation and aiding in rehabilitation. Japanese Kampo medicine offers herbal remedies tailored to individual symptoms, while Korean therapies like herbal medicine and physical therapy complement Western approaches.

By combining these diverse techniques, patients benefit from a holistic approach that addresses physical, emotional, and cognitive aspects of recovery, maximizing their potential for improvement and enhancing overall well-being.

With ongoing support and therapy, many individuals can achieve significant recovery and regain independence following a stroke.
