Neuromuscular diseases are those that affect the muscles and their direct nervous system control; problems with central nervous control can cause either spasticity or some degree of paralysis (from both lower and upper motor neuron disorders), depending on the location and the nature of the problem.
neuromuscular disorders include:

are inherited (run in families) or are caused by a new mutation in your genes.
Some neuromuscular disorders are autoimmune diseases. Sometimes the cause is
neuromuscular diseases have no cure. But treatments may improve symptoms,
increase mobility, and lengthen life.
