An educational series from Duke Clinical Research Institute.
For more about brain and spine care at Ohio State, visit http://wexnermedical.osu.edu/patient-care/healthcare-services/brain-spine-neuro. Ohio State neurologist, Dr. Chad Hoyle, explains neuromuscular disorders, the associated symptoms and which neuromuscular disorders are commonly known among patients.
The Pediatric Orthopaedic Symposium is designed to assist primary care physicians and emergency health care providers in delivering appropriate care to children with orthopaedic injuries or conditions requiring orthopaedic management. Caregivers need to properly identify and manage or refer orthopaedic conditions. At the conclusion of this offering, the participant will be able to: 1) Review possible signs of neuromuscular disorders in a child’s health history. 2) Discuss physical examination for identification of neuromuscular disorders. 3) Identify neurologic tests for identification of neuromuscular disorders.
Neuromuscular disorders, which may have a genetic connection in just 10-15% of cases, can have deeper implications for the patient, including required monitoring of the heart. As Stanley Iyadurai, MSc, PhD, MD, explains, symptoms of neuromuscular disorders can be as simple as numbness, tingling or a feeling of pins and needles, to weakness and difficulty with movement. At Ohio State’s Wexner Medical Center, a definitive diagnosis is based on testing tailored to each patient, often including electromyography or EMG and muscle or nerve biopsies.
