Neuromuscular disorders encompass a range of diseases which neurological connection to muscle is impaired. While the specific conditions vary, most of them affect motor function and often result in muscle weakness over time.

As the genetic etiologies of neuromuscular disorders significantly vary, the University of Chicago Genetic Services Laboratories offers a wide spectrum of genetic tests to identify these conditions.
