  • Radiculopathy or nerve root disorders.
  • Motor neuron disease, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  • Cranial mono or polyneuropathies such as facial palsy (Bell's Palsy), trigeminal neuralgia.
  • Autonomic neuropathy.

Neuropathy

A disease of the nerves is called neuropathy. Single or multiple nerves may be affected.

Cervical & Lumbosacral Spondylosis

These are degenerative disc or spine disease that result in pain in the neck or lower back

Neuromuscular Junction Disorders

Neuromuscular junction (NMJ) disorders are disorders that result due to abnormal signal transmission across the nerve and muscle junction. Myasthenia gravis is the commonest NMJ disorder. Myasthenia gravis is a disease characterized by muscle weakness and fatigue.

Myopathy

Myopathy is a disease of the muscles.

 

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

What is ALS?

ALS is a type of neurodegenerative motor neuron disease leading to muscle paralysis. As the disease progresses, it affects the muscles of breathing, necessitating the use of non-invasive ventilation such as a BIPAP machine or a ventilator.

Who can get ALS?

ALS affects adults 40-60 years of age. About 10 % of the cases are inherited or have a genetic cause.
