"Supporting advancements in the understanding and treatment of movement disorders isn't just a gesture of compassion; it's imperative for safeguarding the dignity and quality of life of those affected, ensuring they can move through life with grace and autonomy." -Patty Barry, M.D.

Movement Disorders & Chronic Neurological Conditions

Riverside provides care for patients living with movement disorders, including ALS, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, dystonia and others. We deploy neurostimulation techniques, including deep brain and vagus nerve stimulation, which use implanted electrodes to better control various neurological conditions.

Our ALS clinic was the first in the Hampton Roads area, providing one-stop multidisciplinary evaluations. The Riverside Multiple Sclerosis Center treats 1,500 patients annually and was recognized as a Center for Comprehensive MS Care by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. In addition, we offer multiple support groups for patients, friends and family to share experiences, challenges and triumphs.

Your Support Will:

  • Enhance cutting-edge technology to meet the growing needs in our communities:
    EEG long-term video monitoring for better service of our patients with neurological conditions, such as epilepsy
    Gait assistive equipment for rehabilitation, physical therapy and occupational therapy

  • Expand personalized patient and family navigation with the potential to provide meaningful one on one support for thousands of patients and their families.

  • Enhance our movement disorder and chronic neurological condition health education throughout the Riverside system and Virginia communities.
