ⓘ Neuromuscular disease

Neuromuscular disease is a broad term that encompasses many diseases and ailments that impair the functioning of the muscles, either directly, being pathologies of the voluntary muscle, or indirectly, being pathologies of nerves or neuromuscular junctions.

Neuromuscular diseases are those that affect the muscles and their direct control of the nervous system, problems with nervous control can cause either spasticity or partial paralysis of both upper and lower motor neuron disease, depending on the location and nature of the problem. Some examples of Central disorders include cerebrovascular accident, Parkinsons disease, multiple sclerosis, Huntingtons disease and Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease. Spinal muscular atrophy are disorders of lower motor neurons in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a mixed upper and lower motor neuron condition.
