Paralyzing or Neuromuscular Diseases

Disorders affecting the nerves that control muscles in the body causing them to become weak and eventually wear away. Neuromuscular diseases are usually caused by genetic factors however, sometimes the cause is unknown. This can lead to paralysis which occurs when the communication between the nervous system and the muscular system in any part of the body ceases as a result of this weakening. Paralysis can be categorized as partial, complete, permanent, temporary, flaccid, or spastic depending on the severity of the neuromuscular disease.
