Neuromuscular diseases are those that affect the peripheral nervous system (PNS), which consists of the nerves, muscles, and neuromuscular junction in between them, also known as a synapse. The PNS enables us to move about, interact, and communicate with our environment. It allows us to gather information, send it to the brain for analysis, and carry out the actions the brain chooses. Neuromuscular disease can affect any or all of these processes and can severely impact quality of life.
