•The diagnosis of a movement disoder is mainly clinical; looking at the movement and recognising its characteristics is the main approach for the diagnosis of a movement disorder by the neurologist.
•Therefore the experience of the neurologist is a key factor for an accurate diagnosis.
Investigations such as brain scan, blood tests do not contribute as much to the diagnosis as the neurological examination.
