Affecting an estimated 10 million Americans, Essential Tremor is a neurological condition that causes shaking of the hands, head and voice, but it can also cause the legs and trunk to shake. ET is often confused with Parkinson’s disease, although it is eight times more common.
Clinical research has identified the Vim nucleus of the thalamus as the spot in the brain which can be treated to alleviate the tremor. This treatment is accomplished with Neuravive MR-guided Focused Ultrasound. Other treatment for Essential Tremor includes Deep Brain Stimulation.
