Phenomenology and treatment of tremor disorders

Phenomenology and treatment of tremor disorders

Neurologic Clinics 19(3): 651

Tremor is classified according to anatomic distribution among body parts, and by frequency and amplitude during rest, postural maintenance, movement, intention, and the performance of specific tasks. Key historical features include age at onset, progression over time, family history, exacerbating and remitting factors and behaviors, response to alcohol and medications, and additional neurological signs and symptoms. Accurate diagnosis is a critical factor in predicting the natural history and response to treatment.
