Neuromuscular disease causes the muscles to degenerate.

ALS & Neuromuscular Disease

Neuromuscular diseases affect the peripheral nervous system, causing the nerves that control your voluntary muscles to become unhealthy or die. Unable to move, your muscles weaken. 

At UVA, we are at the forefront of the field in finding new and better ways to treat these challenging conditions.

We opened the first multidisciplinary clinic in Virginia specifically for people with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease) and their families. We continue to offer physical, occupational and speech therapy, along with support from neurologists, nurse coordinators, social workers and nutritionists.
