Neuromuscular Disease

There are over 40 different types of neuromuscular conditions, and an accurate diagnosis is critical. Oishei Children's Hospital physicians use numerous evaluations to correctly diagnosis patients, such as conducting a thorough medical history and clinical evaluation, electrodiagnostic studies, blood samples, genetic studies, and possibly a muscle or nerve biopsy.

Neuromuscular diseases can be grouped into the following categories:

  • Muscular dystrophies
  • Motor neuron diseases
  • Inflammatory myopathies
  • Congenital myopathies 
  • Neuromuscular junction diseases
  • Peripheral nerve disease
  • Multisystem myopathies including mitochondrial myopathies
  • Other myopathies
