Best Neuromuscular Clinic in Bangalore, Old Airport Road

Neuromuscular disorders encompass a range of medical conditions affecting both the nerves governing voluntary muscle control and the muscles themselves. Various nerves in our body control different muscles. Any damage to the nerves in the voluntary muscles can cause issues in movement known as neuromuscular disorders. For instance, the face, arms, and legs have voluntary muscles. Nerve conditions, including neuromuscular disorders, can impact the ability of these muscles to move.

Symptoms of Neuromuscular Disorders

Different kinds of neuromuscular problems exist. Every condition may have different symptoms. Even the degree of the symptoms could differ from person to person. It may depend on the ailment. Some people may only have minor symptoms. Others may experience severe ones.

In general, the symptoms include:

  • Pain

  • Tingling sensation

  • Numbness

  • Burning sensation

  • Weakness in arms or legs or neck

  • Thinning of the limbs

  • Twitching of the limbs

  • Cramps

  • Difficulty chewing, swallowing, or speaking

  • Drooping of eyelids

  • Double vision

  • Postural dizziness

  • Abnormal sweating

  • Easy fatigability

  • Shortness of breath

Treatment of Neuromuscular Disorders

Most of the neuromuscular disorders are missed out and incompletely evaluated and treated. Thorough evaluation will help in identifying the condition and using the right medications at the right time will help in treating the patients of these disorders.

Medical Treatment

Medical therapy is essential for controlling neuromuscular problems. Medications provide tailored therapies to address root causes and alleviate symptoms. These drugs act by boosting nerve-muscle communication, hence increasing muscular strength and function. Pain caused by neuromuscular problems can be efficiently controlled resulting in an improved quality of life for those suffering.

  • Medical treatments may include the following:

  • Intravenous Immunoglobulins

  • Therapeutic Plasmapheresis

  • Oral and Intravenous Steroids

  • Immunotherapy and Steroid-Sparing Therapies

  • Genetic Therapies

  • Pain Management

Physical Treatment

The doctor at our neuromuscular diseases clinic may suggest different stretching and range-of-motion exercises to increase mobility and prevent muscle contractures. Appropriate physical exercises will also improve the strength in the muscles and help in recovery. Under conditions when mobility is restricted, therapists can recommend mobility aids in the form of walking sticks or wheelchairs. 

Common therapies include:

  • Physiotherapy

  • Occupational therapy

  • Speech and swallow therapy 

Surgical Treatment

Surgical procedures such as thymectomy, tendon, and nerve transfer play an important role in the overall treatment of neuromuscular diseases. These surgeries are used to relieve symptoms and maybe change the progression of the condition.  The choice of surgical therapy is determined by the kind and severity of the neuromuscular problem. Therefore, talking with a healthcare expert is critical for obtaining tailored guidance and establishing the best treatment strategy.
