Essential Tremor

Essential tremor is more common than Parkinson's Disease and is often inherited. Shaking generally affects both hands and can interfere with daily activities. We offer management with medication and when appropriate, deep brain stimulation. Spasmodic dysphonia, an occasional accompanying disorder of the voice can be treated by botulinum toxin.


  • Shaking of the hands
  • Shaking that interferes with normal movement


  • Medication
  • Deep brain stimulation

To schedule an appointment with one of our essential tremor specialists, please call (573) 882-1515.
