People with movement disorders may experience problems such as slowness, spasms, tremors or "freezing up" when they are trying to move. University of Michigan Neurologist Kara Wyant, M.D., specializes in diagnosing and treating patients with movement disorders, such as Parkinson's Disease, Essential Tremor, dystonia and more.

If you or someone you love has a problem with moving too little or too much, a referral to the Movement Disorders Clinic may provide peace of mind by helping you understand your symptoms and how to manage your condition. 

Dr. Wyant takes the time to listen to your story and understand how the tremor or other movements affect your life. This enables her to counsel you and your caregivers on next steps for properly diagnosing, treating and managing  your condition. Her goal is to create a caring and compassionate relationship that will last throughout the process of controlling your disease.

Ask your neurologist or primary care provider if a referral to the Movement Disorders Clinic is right for you. For more information or help obtaining a referral, please call (989) 839-3060.
