Specialty Description

Neuromuscular medicine includes abnormalities of the motor neuron, nerve roots, peripheral nerves, neuromuscular junction, and muscle, including disorders that affect adults and children.

Specialists in neuromuscular medicine possess specialized knowledge in the science, clinical evaluation, and management of these disorders. This encompasses the knowledge of the pathology, diagnosis, and treatment of these disorders at a level that is significantly beyond that expected of a general neurologist, pediatric neurologist, or physiatrist.
