Neurosurgery Information:

Neuromuscular diseases are those which affect the muscle or their nervous control. Generally, neuromuscular problems interfere with movement, affecting spasticity or paralysis to an extent. Such disorders include stroke, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, Huntington's disease, and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.

Diagnostic procedures to test for a neuromuscular disease can include first hand clinical observations of loss of muscle control, as well as testing the chemical and antigen levels in blood and electromyography.
