Physicians often encounter patients during times of distress. Moments when their bodies have been broken down by infection, disease, or unintentional injury. Sometimes simple prescriptions of medication, exercise, or dietary changes can alleviate their maladies, but sometimes an illness can take an unexpected course, one that cannot be easily accounted for or controlled. This is particularly true for neurological diseases, whose physical symptoms may manifest in tandem with the more abstract workings of the mind.
