Neuromuscular disorders are a group of diseases affecting the peripheral nervous system (lower motor neurons, neuromuscular junction and/or muscle) causing weakened, reduced or absent voluntary movement. Neuromuscular patients are challenging yet rewarding to nurse as they require intensive rehabilitation and nursing care, especially if complications arise. It is important to understand the pathophysiology of these diseases to help facilitate the best possible outcome.
