Neurology and clinical neurophysiology

Head and nerves – central to our well-being

As a member of the Beta Klinik neurology department, Dr. med. Walther J. Koehler is tasked with understanding every patient’s individual medical history and symptom manifestation. Each individually developed treatment plan is preceded by a thorough medical history, a clinical examination and an instrument-based diagnosis that is tailored to the pathology of the disease.

For Dr. Koehler, neurology encompasses a broad spectrum – from individual nerve cell processes to the cognitive, behavioural and sensory dysfunctions associated with diseases of the cerebrum. His special expertise has been acquired through many years of scientific and clinical work in the field of clinical neurophysiology.

Dr. Koehler has made it his mission to ensure your optimum medical treatment in line with the German Neurological Society guidelines. In particular, he examines and treats diseases of the peripheral nervous system, spinal motor function and central movement disorders.

Focus primarily centres on diseases:

  • of the muscles (muscle cramps, muscle aches)
  • of the nerves (polyneuropathies, cranial nerves, nerve injuries or impingement syndromes, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, nerve root lesions in cases of damaged discs)
  • of the spinal cord (myelopathies, ALS)
  • that include movement disorders (peripheral or central causes, such as Parkinson’s disease, dystonia and stroke)

Procedures that have been proven to be effective as well as promising new electrophysiological diagnostic procedures are applied:

  • myography
  • neurography
  • evoked potentials
  • magnetic stimulation
  • quantitative sensory testing
  • sonography

Based on these comprehensive clinical and instrumental diagnostics, causes can be determined and pathologies can be classified in interdisciplinary collaboration. Subsequently, the appropriate medical, surgical, rehabilitative, physiotherapeutic or psychotherapeutic treatments can be initiated.
