Neuromuscular Disorders

Bracing for Neuromuscular Disorders in Kansas City

The aches of neuromuscular disorders

Neuromuscular disorders affect the nerves that control your voluntary muscles. Voluntary muscles are the ones you can control, like in your arms and legs. Your nerve cells, also called neurons, become unhealthy or die – communication between your nervous system and muscles breaks down. As a result, muscles become weak and can lead to twitching, cramps, aches and pains and problems with mobility.
