In the lists of medical specialties can easilyeven the most educated person gets confused. Their diversity gives rise to incorrect information about which doctor should be treated by a person with certain symptoms. For example, diseases associated with nerves and stresses are immediately attributed to such different specialists as a psychiatrist, psychotherapist, neurologist, psychologist and neuropathologist. The way they differ, at first glance understand the unsophisticated person is difficult. Let's find out what the neuropathologist is treating.
The main symptom of diseases associated withnervous system, is pain. Most often its location is the head. That is, all sorts of unpleasant sensations: from mild indisposition to severe migraines - lie just in the competence of such a specialist as a neurologist. What a psychiatrist or a psychotherapist treats is mental disorders expressed in non-standard behavior and reactions to society, that is, behavioral reactions. A neurologist is engaged in physical manifestations of malaise of the nervous system.
If we move further along the human body, thenit is logical to assume that the back as a whole, and specifically the vertebral column, is also treated by a specialist in neuropathology. Most often, the pain in this part of the body is triggered by radiculitis or osteochondrosis - and these diseases also belong to the category of those treated by a neurologist. So in the case of such pains, it is better to first refer to it, rather than begin self-treatment with healers or manual therapists.
