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.
