Experienced care for children who have trouble with movement and muscle control

Movement disorders can greatly affect a child’s ability to participate in activities at home, in school and in sports and recreation. At Texas Children’s Hospital, the specialists in our Movement Disorders Program diagnose and treat these conditions in infants, children and teens. We work closely with you and your child to tailor a care plan that helps your child get the most out of life.

Movement disorders we treat in infants, children and teens

Movement disorders are neurological (nerve-related) conditions that cause problems with muscle movement and control, such as:

  • Increased movement, such as muscle spasms, jerking or shaking
  • Decreased or slow movements
  • Movements that a child chooses to make (voluntary)
  • Uncontrolled (involuntary) movements
