Health Information

 

Neuromuscular disorders affect your "voluntary" muscles, or the muscles that you can control, such as in your arms and legs. When a patient has a neuromuscular disorder, neurons begin to die off and cannot send messages to the brain to control the muscles. This can lead to twitching, cramps, aches, pains and joint and movement difficulties.

Some examples of neuromuscular disorders include amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, commonly referred to as ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease, multiple sclerosis and muscular dystrophy.
