Once the neurologist analyzes your symptoms and clinical history, they will perform a physical examination to determine the cause of the dysarthria, based on tests such as:
- Blood and urine tests.
- Computed tomography.
- Lumbar puncture.
- Neuropsychological evaluation.
They will also refer you to a speech therapist to assess your ability to speak and help identify the type of dysarthria you suffer from.
The treatment to be followed will be established according to the direct cause, the type of dysarthria and the magnitude of the symptoms, but in all cases, once the cause has been addressed, it will be necessary to receive speech therapy to normalize the muscular and articulatory function of the speech.
At the Neurological Center, a select group of highly trained and certified doctors in the various neurological specialties are ready to assist you with the quality and warmth that characterizes us.
