Diagnosis and treatment

Diagnosis of neuromuscular disorders may require complex tests such as blood investigations (including relevant DNA or antibody analysis), electrical testing of nerve and muscle and/or biopsy of nerve and muscle.

However, a clinical assessment is the starting point because this can often allow a clinical diagnosis minimising the use of more uncomfortable tests.

If required, we can rely on the help of colleagues with expertise in interpretation of electrical test (neurophysiology), nerve or muscle biopsies (pathologists) and genetic analysis.
