What are Neuromuscular Disorders?

Neuromuscular disorders are conditions that affect structures outside the brain and spinal cord. These structures include the nerves, nerve roots, plexuses, the neuromuscular junction, and muscles. People with these conditions may experience numbness, tingling, weakness, or twitching in their muscles.

Types of Neuromuscular Disorders

There are a wide variety of neuromuscular disorders. Some are very common, like carpal tunnel syndrome or diabetic neuropathy. Others are very rare. Our neuromuscular experts are fellowship-trained and board-certified specialists in neuromuscular diseases.

Here are some examples of neuromuscular disorders:

Queen’s Services for Neuromuscular Disorders

The specialists at Queen’s Neuromuscular Center provide expert diagnosis and treatment of nerve and muscle disorders.

Services we offer include:

  • Electrodiagnostic Testing: Nerve conduction studies and electromyography (EMGs) are a critical tool for making an accurate diagnosis of neuromuscular disorders and guiding treatment. Queen’s Neuromuscular Center takes great care to provide the most accurate results possible. Our lab has the only AAET-certified nerve conduction technologist in Hawai‘i.
  • Single-Fiber Electromyography (SFEMG): Queen’s Neuromuscular Center has one of the few labs in Hawaii that offers the Single-Fiber EMG. This is the most sensitive test available for detecting neuromuscular junction disorders such as Myasthenia Gravis.
  • Skin Biopsy: Skin biopsies help diagnose small-fiber neuropathy, which can cause pain, sensory, and autonomic changes.
