There are many hundred types of muscular diseases, or neuromuscular diseases. Common for all of them is that they affect the nerves that control the muscles and the most common symptom is muscle weakness.

Few neuromuscular diseases can be cured today, but there are many treatment methods that have shown significant importance for improving and stimulating a person’s mobility as well as preventing further complications to occur.

Some examples of muscle diseases are

  • Spinal muscular atrophy
  • Polyneuropathy
  • Myasthenia Gravis
  • Friedreich’s ataxia
  • Muscular dystrophy e.g. Duchennes muscular Dystrophy
